I have a busy evening, but I got some new drill bits in the mail and I had to run out to my bench and try one....not good. I had nearly finished this one when I broke my last old bit. It pretty much took an entire new bit to finish it. The stones are beautiful but apparently a little too hard to drill. I am more than a little disappointed.

It will be a sad day when I use the last of these little tin toys. I was afraid, when I got them, that they would look too "charm bracelet-y", but I am loving how they look mixed with the old buttons and a little bit of hardware.

After reading the article Bean Freaks in the New Yorker, I had to order heirloom beans from Rancho Gordo. They arrived so beautifully packed that I had trouble throwing the box into the recycling bin. I can't stop admiring them. But I have managed to open the package of cranberry beans and am currently soaking some to cook, and then add to a pico de gallo.
So there are two cooking firsts here...I have never made a pico de gallo (I've chopped stuff but never formally titled it.) and I have never cooked with dried beans (split peas yes, dried beans, no).
Wish me luck!
