amazing weaving by Jesus sauvage

I spotted these lovely minimally-woven artworks on Pinterest and thought you would like them too!

They are by the wonderful French blogger Jesus Sauvage – and there’s a full how-to-do-it here. (She has some other woven treats and generally ace stuff on her blog, if you fancy taking a peek.)

How are you today, petal? Are you good?

I am good. I slept in til 6 am – which sounds like a humble brag – but I am a real 5 am riser, usually. 6 is out-of-character, but perhaps much-needed.

I made a mint and pea frittata yesterday and I’m going to have that for breakfast with a little bowl of black bean and tomato soup and a large cup of coffee. Do you think that’s a weird breakfast? I don’t. Soup is a good idea first thing, in my opinion.

Guess what else? It’s nearly Autumn! Yesssssss!

May your day be super peachy. Love to you.

Bonus: Two weird breakfast (or any time) recipes

Simplest Tomato and Black Bean Soup

Fry a finely sliced onion and some diced bacon (or not, if you are vegetarian) in a slosh of olive oil.
When fragrant and softened, thrown in 2 cloves of diced garlic. Fry for 2 seconds. Don’t burn it.
Add one 400g tin of drained black beans and one 400g tin of crushed or diced tomatoes.
Add one litre of stock of your choosing.
Simmer for 20 minutes.
Throw in some fresh herbs and season with salt and pepper.

Serves 2 (with some leftovers)

Simple Mint and Pea Frittata

In a big bowl, mix 6 eggs, 1/2 cup of thawed frozen peas, a sprinkling of fresh chopped herbs, 1/4 cup of grated or crumbled cheese (parmesan or feta, for instance.) Season with salt and pepper.

Grab a heavy based frypan that has a lid. Pop over a medium flame, slosh a good quantity of olive oil in and around. When hot, pour in the egg mix, making sure all the pan is oiled well before you do.

Cook uncovered over a LOW heat for 5 minutes. Put lid on. Cook until firm – another 5 mins or so.

Best served cold, in my opinion.

Serves 2 (with some leftovers)

    Love those weavings how gorgeous.
    I will be making that soup for sure, I only mentioned to the fam yesterday how I was looking forward to soup weather.
    I’m sick of salads. I love that I live somewhere where just as I am getting bored with the weather or seasonal foods it all changes.
    I’ve missed you here lately, I hope all is peachy in your world.

    cheers Kate
