Double Four Patch progress

Bean soup
Fasolada

Again I did not progress a lot either in quilting or in knitting. The reason is that I had to spend all the week at my daughter's to help her with her baby because she had a stiff neck and could hardly stand from her bed!

I did a few more double four patch blocks, I knitted for a while in the evening in front of TV, and most of all I cooked for us and for my daughter. Among other dishes, I prepared this traditional Greek winter soup called Fasolada, and I took a picture to show you how it looks like. It is done with beans, carrots, celery, onions and tomatoes and of course a lot of olive oil.
