Home made gift

December 13th, 2007 at 03:32 am

Likely could have bought somethng a bit cheaper. Panel was about $11 backing fabric about $4.. the white and pale green borders were fro the stash as was the batting.

But I love giving a home made guilt. Even if it was mostly a "cheat" to any real quilters.

Nice Day Sunday

I had a really nice day Sunday. A friend came over and we did some sewing.

I worked on my quilt - got the borders on and the quilt basted. I used spray glue rather than basting it which sent my friend into a tizzy - what with her being a traditionalist and all that. I started the quilting but didn't get very far with that even though I was doing it on the machine.. too much fun chatting!

I made a dip yesterday using "fresh cheese" aka quark and a dip mix. The quark was very low fat (.25%) and tasted delciously rich - a splurge compared to sour cream on price but wwayyyyyyyy better than fat free sour cream in taste (then again isn't everythin better than that stuff). Delicious with fresh crudites.

Another purse

I made a black and white version of the purse I made last week yesterday. The pictures aren't the greatest I'm afraid. I have to admit that it went much faster the second time which is likely not surprising.
