And I don't blog.
But I do make it to my sewing machine.
And I sew.
Pink Castle Fabrics). I was over there for a few hours this weekend helping her fill her pre-orders for Flea Market Fancy. It was a massive operation--many people, tons of fabric!
While I admire Flea Market Fancy, I took just two small pieces home (really, they were from the remnants pile!) I'm cultivating the skill of admiring without acquiring. And when it comes to fabric, I've realized, that I like a lot of fabric, but really only want to quilt with a pretty limited subset (blenders, prints with few colors, 1-way prints, luxury solids).
Anyway, I am contemplating a blog post about my new-found fabric pickiness. But I also need to show you my recent projects (finishes, things in progress, more). I'd like to write tutorials for a couple of them, which is, I think why I am delayed. It takes FOREVER to write tutorials! I'm so impressed by people who churn them out all the time.
Let me leave you with this:
Homemade Shamrock ShakeAdd to blender:
1 scoop high quality vanilla ice cream (I like the Kirkland stuff from Costco, or Ben & Jerry's)
1/4 cup milk (I use Silk Vanilla soy milk)
2 drops of organic peppermint flavor.
You may have to add slightly more milk depending on your blender and the size of your ice cream scoops, but I trust you can figure it out.
No food coloring.
Easy portion control.
Delicious, subtle flavor that you control!
