Overcast and rain today so I am hoping its just those spring showers and not another winter day. On Saturday a friend gave me a bunch of old Indonesian style dresses to use as fabric. Of course they had that musty smell since they had been living in a grandmother's closet for decades. But after a whirl through the washer they still smell. Any ideas on how to get rid of the smell? So far I have just kept them on the line and have welcomed the rain.
Been making these little guys as well hopefully to sell at the next craftwerk. Forgive the bad lighting, as my post title says the sun doesn't shine today.
Also I've been quilting though I am a bit shy to post photos yet. I've been making the cathedral quilt using Leah's tutorial. I pretty much followed her colour scheme as well because imitation is the best form of flattery. really.
Otherwise I have been busy this week working on our company website and portfolio. This is for my husband and I, not crafting stuff. Since I am done with studying, we decided to combine forces officially so he's got digital design covered and I'm all over illustration (represent!). Soon the website will be finished and you can go have a look. We have a new company name as well but I am keeping that like a secret until the site is finished. (I'm such a tease)
In domestic news, I recently found the BEST oatmeal cookie recipe and just had to share it with you all. Its from the College Hill Presbyterian Church's recipe book Cooking for Generations and was given to me by my auntie from Ohio. I made a few changes (butter in place of lard (shudder), a bit less sugar, and the standard metric conversions)
Friends, when it comes to baking, leave it to the Amish.
more is more when it comes to cookies, try making these GIANT sized. I promise you will not be disappointed.
