Well, most UFOs are still at a standstill: BOAF is STILL at the longarmer's, Hawaiian Snowballs, Scrappy Stars, and Chocolates & Cherries STILL await backing fabrics, Broken Dishes STILL longs for a cleared-off basting table (did I use the word "still" enough times in that sentence???) Sooo....alternate pursuits!
Bread Machine....Several years ago I received a very-much-coveted automatic bread machine. I used it furiously for a couple of years. Then the word came down about bad, bad CARBS. So it sat on top of the refrigerator for a lo-o-ong time. Well, recently I decided to live dangerously and resurrect it and dig for some recipes that may (or may not) be more "body friendly". I've started baking bread again and decided to make a fun little booklet out of recycled grocery bag to save the recipes with photos in that I will want to keep. Along with that I made a little lunchsack booklet to keep soup recipes in. Today I will try to find time to embellish them.
Tasha Tudor...About once a year I check this book out of the library. I adore reading about her lifestyle. I was always a fan of her children's book illustrations and find her to be a true inspiration. Looking at her antiques and collectibles, her gorgeous handdyed yarns, dipped candles, Nubian goats, amazing hens, lovely hand constructed clothing, quilts, linens---oh, I could go on and on about this book---is sheer eye candy. I should probably just purchase the thing, huh? Bead Love.... Digging out the beads and bead paraphenalia, I'm making some scissor fobs for the quilt show boutique. I really like to work with beads--guess it's the ole "hippie" leftover in me LOL!!! This post sounds like "What I Did on My Sewing Vacation" doncha think?
