Look at this awesome thing my sister got me.  Isn’t he funny?  He’s the sewing duck.

    No way! My grandma had something like this, but it was more of a “Sewing Seagull”.

    My gramma had one too! I was fascinated by it and tried to mess with it whenever I could. A big no-no, she was fiercely protective of her sewing scissors!

    Hilarious!! I love it!
    How was the weekend with the fam?

    So where can I get one of these? My mom had one too. We were also not allowed to touch it.

    A duck with rabbit ears!

    I just stumbled on your blog by having my Google reader suggest things to me. And I have to comment on this, because I made one of these for shop class in the 6th grade (circa 1982). Seems like there was something different besides a pin cushion, but I can’t quite recall. Gave it to my mother when I finished it. :) Hope you enjoy yours!

    My Aunt Emily just went into the nursing home and she gave me her sewing duck. It’s a really neat one with a little wooden drawer. Has two little padded “wings” to put needles into, a thimble holder and 6 dowels for thread. I didn’t know what the hole was for…thought it was missing something till I saw the scissors. That solves the mystery!

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
