When did that happen?
Well it’s been since August that I shared anything. Oopps! Sometimes life gets a little too busy and I drop the ball. Here is a little montage of what has been going on. It goes from Party Dress to Christmas.
But that is just the beginning- I have been sewing (and cooking!?!) up a storm these last few months. Some of the other sewing includes but is not limited to:
I have also been marinating on some ideas for a line of clothing and/or soft furnishing 100% re-purposed for the thrift store. I have found some AMAZING textiles at some of my favorite “digs” here in Seattle like the Dearborn Goodwill or its sister store the Goodwill Outlet (if you are a Germ-a-phobe this place is not for you). I guess I just don’t know if people would be as excited about reclaimed leather/ linen/ cotton as I am.
And I have been cooking, here are some recipes I have used over the last couple of months:
- Italian Focaccia This was so awesome there were no leftovers!
- Black Bean Burger I liked this recipe but I want to find something closer to beef (yeah, I know longshot!)
- Grilled Pears and sausage- So good I wished I doubled the recipe.
- Crunchy Crackers- A little to crunchy- my jaw hurt:(
- Artichoke Dip- This is like crack so watch out (consider yourself warned and just double the recipe!)
There are other things that I heard about so created my own version like the fennel and sausage Quiche:
We have also been doing a fair amount of juicing over the last month and we also might commit to a juice fast for the New Year… although I really don’t know if we can do that… I mean I am a meat and potatoes girl. I know it will be good to clear out the system but it is going to be kind of torturous. My husband suggested it at the beginning of this month and I logically pushed it back noting that Christmas would be hard and that the New Year is great for gimmicks like that.
Also I did finish the bridesmaid dresses I talked about rolling out but I don’t have photography of any of it yet and the wedding dress is in mock-up form so I did not completely drop the ball on that idea. It’s a slow build!
