Aurora is having such wonderful adventures!  Actually, I enjoy looking at all the LV pictures whether they are mine or not.  I had no idea they had SLVs (space little visitors).  My husband enjoys space exploration so I was sure to share the video with him.

Things have been pretty quiet around here.  There aren't any little ones in the family so no egg hunts, but we did stuff ourselves silly on Easter.

The Blues had me worried there at the end, but they managed to win the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.  Clara might have been conflicted rooting for a team other than the Lightning, but she didn't mention it.  Way to assimilate!

Thursday my mosaic group had our monthly meeting.  They are held at Yucandu, an interactive art studio for all ages.

Prompt: April - Quote #2 (overcoming challenges)
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: Engineering
Project Name:"Senf Eier" (Eggs in Mustard Sauce)
Project Link:N/a
Brief Description: "Obstacles do not block the path, they ARE the path" Ok, my girls dyed 26 (!!!) hardboiled eggs for Easter. What do you do with 26 (!!!!) hardboiled eggs apart from 2 batches of egg mayo? And specially when your "go to" dish of "Gruene Sosse" (Green Sauce, a famous (?) Dish from Frankfurt) is off the menu due to not all the herbs easily obtainable in the UK and I forgot to plant the seeds in time (I've yet to plant those darn things!). So... I had to try something that I've not cooked at all but liked as a child. And given my girls don't usually like mustard it was a hit and miss how it would go down...

Eggs in Mustard Sauce

80g butter
4 tbsp flour
400ml milk
300ml vegetable broth
3 tbsp medium mustard
salt and peppper
lemon juice
2 egg yolks
8 hard boiled eggs

Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the flour and whisk until absorbed. Add liquids and whisk until smooth. Simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes. Make sure to stir to prevent burning.

Season sauce with mustard, salt, pepper, lemon juice and 2 pinches of sugar to taste. Take a bit of the sauce and mix in a separate tub with the egg yolks then add back to the pan. Take the pan of the heat.

Serve over the hard boiled eggs (I cut them in half for adults and into six "wedges" for the girls) and either boiled or mashed potatoes.

Made for sloth in the mini art quilt swap 8. My partner is a pretty quirky gal, I knew I had to make her something strange and wondrous. I hope I succeeded.

It's strip or string piecing with one side of the strip overlapped and the other left raw.
I visually divided the panel up into 3 and fit the colours for each scene in.

Using sticky dissolvable solvy over the top, sketched some lines and sewed all over to hold the strips in place. The solvy washes away afterwards.

Added the sun and birds, mountains & cacti, a campfire to each panel using double sided fusible web.

I used the fusible web to add a layer of felt inside instead of batting so it would all start out and stay relatively flat since it's supposed to hang and I didn't want it wavy at all. I fused the felt on both sides, to the front panel and the backing fabric on the other side.
Divided the panels with strips of black then bound it all with dark brown.

Some of the quilting was done before adding detail, some afterwards.

Zig zag stitching to give the cacti spikiness.

The campfire is my favourite scene. The tree silhouettes are sketched in thread by machine.

There are 5 magnets hidden inside the quilt and one on the back of the jackelope so he can be positioned in each scene. Jackelope is an image found online (I have since lost the info about the source, terrible me!) and printed onto fabric.

The magnets are those really strong ones so as you hold Jack and circle round the quilt looking for them he pretty much jumps out of your hand into the spot when he gets close enough. That was so fun to do Cheesy.

ETA: each scene was heavily inspired by other landscape quilts I found online.

I made this Coil wrapped yarn bowl and will be adding it to my shop:

It's a little wonky, but it was my first attempt and a test project for a larger tote bag type one. Sunglasses inside to show size, but that makes it look larger than it is! 10" across and 3.5" high. Base diameter 6.5".

My little one, inheriter of all the wee items, needed a place to set up her house. We tried inside a large armoire but it wasn't working. During my most recent rearranging of the house these two teak pieces lost their useful places so we stacked them up in her room where a dresser used to be, moved those clothes into the armoire & the minis to the shelves.

She loves it & now actually plays with it. We'll get down to serious decorating now, I have ideas Wink.
