Over the weekend I noticed I now have 50 followers! Wow! Thank you followers and also everyone else who reads my blog and have not signed up as a follower (yet). I really appreciate it.
Apart from the creative side quilting is also a social activity for me, as is blogging. Both give me a lot of enjoyment and I have met so many new, nice people through both.
Soooooo, to celebrate this it is time for my first Giveaway!
On Friday I will ask my DD to draw a name among those of my followers at that time, he or she will receive this handy book! A mini encyclopedia on quilting, always ready to answer any question you may have. If you are not a follower yet and wish to participate, you can still do so.
(If you do not, not to worry, I am planning another little giveaway for everyone in April!)
On another note, DD and I have been busy this weekend making sushi. In this household we all love sushi and sashimi. Even Whopper seems to get more exited at the smell of fish than at the smell of meat in the kitchen. It was DD’s first experience at making sushi and she took to it like a duck to water J !
First on Saturday afternoon we went to one of the supermarkets in Chinatown and to the fishmonger nearby to get our ingredients.
Back home it was preparing the rice the proper way (for me the most difficult part, the rice has to be moist and sticky, it is easily either too dry or too moist, in both cases it will not be sticky enough), making the Japanese egg omelette and the Japanese mushrooms. We bought the seaweed salad ready made at the fishmonger’s.
And then – DD’s favourite part – putting the actual sushi together.
After that, the best part, eating it!
This is DD’s picture, she often knows how to get a different angle in a picture.
