We have a winner! Jane from Chillyhollow, congratulations! Your package of sumptuous Ultrasuede will be arriving at your door very soon, ENJOY!

I am so very thankful to all of you for the recipes. Surprisingly they don't look a thing like "diet" type food. I've tried a few already and hope to be able to get to the rest starting March 8th. Why March 8th, you ask? It's a long story...

We will be starting a big renovation in our loft. Some of you may have seen parts of our abode way back here. It's a beautiful space, however it never really suited our life
style. Although a loft was always a dream of mine, I got my dream and found out it just wasn't for me. I'm not a loft kinda gal. I like cozy corners, surprises as you move from one room to the next, privacy, all of which are not in the cards when you live in a loft. So, five years later, we have decided to de-loft our place.

The biggest treat is a new studio! This one will have doors that shut out the world when I need to work and concentrate. Lots of new storage, big central worktable for cutting fabric, packing orders, a big wall of thread hangers...a real dreamland!

...back to "why March 8th?". For the three months, (famous last words...), of renovation, we have rented a place in our building, a ONE bedroom place. Yes, you heard me, the three of us plus my temporary studio, plus Nina's essential toys, plus plus plus, all will be crowded into a one bedroom apartment. I figure the best place to be, in a one bedroom place, is the kitchen, which happens to be nice sized. I will pretend I'm in a castle, cooking for the gentry, and make my way through your wonderful recipes.

We start on March 8th, so there is still time for those of you who think I'm totally insane, to talk me out of this.

In the meantime, among the architectural plans and the samples of kitchen counter tops, sits our Quail, almost done and ready for a stitch guide for all of you bird lovers.


The Chilly Hollow Needlepoint Adventure  – (February 20, 2010 at 12:25 PM)  


That's Jane, fainting in Chilly Hollow.

I am glad you are enjoying all the recipes. They are marvelous, each and every one.

I guess I should email my address to you since the Ultrasuede will be able to arrive here now that the mailbox is peeking out from the four feet of snow that covered it after the two big storms two weeks ago hit.

Thank you very much for the contest and the lovely treat. I just hope the move until the renovation is over is a good one. Treat it as an adventure and it'll be over soon.
