This week has already gone by fast but there are all kinds of projects in the works.
For my girl's baking project she choose to make Biscotti. I have thought about making it over the years but was a bit intimidated by the process. Without any perceived notions of difficulty she jumped right in and they turned out great!
I am really learning to love this project!
The recipe for these almond meal Chocolate Chip Biscotti can be found in Gather.
I started matching up fabrics for a bunch of small projects in the works. This fat quarter my mom passed along to me is filled with chicks, hens, roosters, and fiddle playing bunnies and is just too sweet. I think I finally found the perfect project for it. More on that soon...
There are also plans for skirt making over the next few nights so I pulled out a few fabrics I thought would be perfect. My girl is running low and with her big double digit birthday this weekend I figured it was time for some fresh new skirts.
The green dandelion fabric was cut and started last night... I had better get busy!
I have made this pattern for years because she likes the spin factor of the three tiers and once you do the math and make one they come together pretty quickly.
So I found myself doing some math yesterday afternoon (even algebra for those of you with kids who ask when they will ever use it.)
Amy directed me to this online tutorial which is amazingly simple so I might even have a few more skirts ready than I anticipated. I will be sure to share after the big day!
I have also finished sewing up a little something for Kindred. Here is a little sneak peek but you will have to wait for the mag to come out in October to see the rest...
There has been a whole lot of thunder playing around these parts. It has made for quite a spectacular show with its accompanying partner lightening.
I have a list of new music recommendations from my twitter buddies but have yet to buy anything new... it has been so busy. This duo, this band and this lovely lady have all been in the mix, along with the favorite tunes of the Smithsonian Folkways.
What have you been making?
What is on your playlist?
Please do share!
