With January/February's Theme-a-li-cious and TUSAL reporting dates so close to each other, I decided to marry them together for:

January's Theme-a-licious theme was Jardin January, which was right up Spring Knotgarden's alley. For February, we will be stitching on "Fantastical Fiction," which means a pixie for me. On that subject, PTP's Masquerade is scrolled and ready to go . . .

. . . which also means, for those of you who are wondering, Spring Knotgarden is finished!!! :D The final bead went in during the wee hours of the morning and I promise pics will follow soon.

Today is the second day of Chinese New Year and we cooked most of the day for the reunion dinner with my cousin and her family.

Chinese New Year Salad

Chinese Broccoli

Fried Bean Noodle

Malaysian Curry Chicken

Assam Prawn

Braised Pork and Shiitake Mushroom

I'm tired now. I think I'm going to have some wine and think about starting Lilac. LOL!!!
