We had fun at the basketball game, even though my Irish lost:

Before the game, we stopped for salads at a little place called BarBici. The concept is "Italian street food". Ask me how long Magoo's rant was about THAT?!

(Italians, in his opinion, do not have street food. They linger a long time over a meal at a table...not over a paper plate next to some kind of truck. And if they do have a "street food" it would be a slice or a calzone.)

(Guess what two things were not on the menu?)

Anywhoose...I came home and stitched a little before calling it a night:

I've almost made my way across the bottom of the piece, so I might paw through my stash for a change of pace in the next few days. 

Or maybe not. I'm still really enjoying this, so why futz, right?

Speaking of futzing, we're off like a herd of turtles on this somewhat quiet Futzingday, Dearies! I've got YoYo in the 'phones and am going to settle in for a little stitchy time! 

Hope your day is swell and that you're futzing happily! Come tell me all about it!


  1. It sounds like you had a good outing last night. But, I think I agree with Magoo about a slice or a calzone for Italian "street food". I say if the Ink Circles piece is lighting your fire, then continue on with it.

  2. Another vote for Magoo! I confess to standing next to my stove with a fork " neatening up the edges" of a lasagna but no,nothing "gravy" related ( not sauce as I learned after marrying Italian sweetheart) can be eaten standing up or off a paper plate. I shudder to think how much I would end up wearing!

  3. I love seeing pictures of you two! And I had to look up BarBici and it looks like they serve their salad on a flatbread which is kinda a pizza. :)

  4. Actually, the Italians do have other street food. Cinque e cinque is delicious and is called such because you hold it with 2 hands. Cinque means 5, so 5 and 5. 5 fingers on each hand. :)
