I really love soup. I mean, really love soup.
And the combination of a head cold and a cold-weather snap give me the perfect reason to indulge this love. I had two bowls of my remedy soup Wednesday for lunch ; I wasn't planning on the second bowl, but my oldest called me from the school nurse's office, because she was also sick and achy, so I needed that second bowlful, just for the energy to make the round trip to get her. But I was able to get some cleaning and organizing done around the house afterwards; it was just the boost I needed to start functioning again.

I was able to sort by color and width, for the most part. One row of cubbies holds all the quilt binding, sorted by color; the rick rack trim is grouped together in a few cubbies; but the majority is bias tape, divided by narrow single-fold, wide single-fold, double-fold, and wide double-fold. Bet you didn't know there was that much variety in the bias tape biz! I think Tim Gunn approves.

And then I made potato soup for supper for the whole family, with crumbled bacon and chopped green onion added in. Everybody wins!
