Things I like Aug 10
(I'm praying for you Guam) but here are the things I do like this week:
1. Making things I'm not supposed to be doing right now- such as my Candy Apple Potholder
Isn't it the cutest? The layer cake piece was from an old I Spy fabric collection. The pot holder was made using Insul Bright which reflects the heat. I also put a layer of batting inside. The potholder is about 9x10. I might sell it at a craft sale in the fall or give it as a gift.
2. Making things for my daughter-she is so appreciative and I can usually guess what fabrics she will like- this time I made a blue and gold mug rug for her morning tea:
Either of these projects only took 1/2 hour to make. Very satisfying.
3.Preparing/cooking with new recipes. Yesterday I tried making baked chicken taquitos from a Facebook recipe.
The same day, I tried to make peach sorbet and it was so awful tasting I didn't even take a picture. How could peaches, sugar and water not taste good. ... I think it must have been the frozen peaches I just purchased at the store for that recipe.
But, you won't experience good new dishes unless you try! My track record is really good considering, so I'll keep playing.
4. Blog sites that are not about quilting and cooking. Two of my favorites are Gabrielle at Design Mom and Laura at Decor to Adore If you get a chance to check them out I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
I hope everyone is safe, happy and healthy and thanks for dropping by. Please check out other "likes" with Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color.
