There has been a bit more done for the vintage linens quilt project - the blocks are all done and now it's on to the putting together with the sashing.
And....a completed evening project! There are two upcoming weddings this year and this is the second wedding gift done. The pattern is 'Annie's Lace Throw' and can be found on the Mary Maxim web site.
And...just because I can....a photo of Resident Chef's fresh-out-of-the oven (but not so fresh that one wasn't taste tested!) sourdough English muffins...
- There's a fun year-long project happening HERE. Each week you are given a theme and you create a small tag reflecting the theme. At the end of the year you will have 52 tags to use for whatever you like (perhaps use as gift tags...or hang on the tree??). While you're there be sure to check out some of her other fun projects!
- THIS looks like a fun thing to try doing.
- I like the shape of THIS bag - lots of uses for something like it I would think.
- AND - in the interest of the fact that you just never know what you might discover here at Chez Magpie...did you know....to stop bananas from over-ripening overly fast....let them reach the degree of ripeness you prefer and then separate them. Stick them in the refrigerator and they won't ripen any more. The skins turn a little black perhaps but the fruit stays pretty much the same. There now, aren't you better for knowing that?
