Handcrafted Bazaar and Back to Viaggio

Yesterday I headed to Sadu House where The Kuwait Textiles Art Association was holding its annual Handcrafted Bazaar.



These camel quilts were only on display.



But I did buy 10 raffle tickets for this elephant quilt. Unfortunately, did not receive that 3 pm call to say that I had won.

I didn't take any pictures inside the display area -- small space and too many people.





There were a couple of Bedouin women who were selling their Sadu weavings. I bought one of their wallhangings but have a slight problem -- no blank wall space on which to hang it.

After shopping, I headed with friends to Viaggio for lunch.

My tastebuds were ready for another culinary journey.

And I just couldn't get the risotto with mushrooms and asparagus out of my head.

Yum! It was just as good as I thought it would be.

Hope you are having a peaceful, relaxing Sunday in your corner of the world. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

Dearest Tammy,

Great display and too bad you didn't win the elephant quilt. So you have to paint a wall or what will you do about it for haning that Bedouin wall hanging?
The risotto had saffron added it looks like or turmeric, due to its yellow color. Might be a good idea to try that next time I make it with dried porcini and fresh mushrooms. One of my favorite risottos. The Parmezan flakes look yummy too. Guess you will be back more often to Viaggio.
Have a great week and love to you,

Mariette

I would have loved to visit that quilt show! Such exquisite workmanship and beautiful ideas. I'm glad you got to go and could enjoy a wonderful afternoon. Lunch looks super delicious too! Yummy!

Enjoy a happy day! The sun is just rising here --- bright and inviting as it shines of the blooming Rio Samba roses outside my window. It's going to be a good day.
