Gluten Free Scones – Two Ways

Yeah, more baking. Gluten free scones again. I seriously love scones. They’re easy to mix up quickly, and they bake in less time than a muffin. I’m sharing two different new recipes that worked for me recently. Why two in the same post? Because I didn’t take a picture of the first kind- they went too fast! I was having …

Gluten-free chocolate scones

So although I mainly mean this to be a sewing blog, I crafted something else today and wanted to share it. We love chocolate scones around here, but I’ve been feeling not so happy after eating them lately. I tried a version of these a couple weeks ago and they were moist but still crumbly, so I wanted to tweak …

Sewing Again

I’m doing some sewing again! Yay! Although I’d started moving my sewing studio to the garage, I found I just didn’t want to be out there when it is 38° outside. Brr! But I had to get some work done, so my regular machine and a handful of needed things came in last night. In the interest of laziness but …

Silhouette Contest

So, how much do I want to win a Silhouette CAMEO? A LOT. Here’s a silly contest entry I made yesterday about it.   I pinned it as per their directions, but Pinterest ate the image! So here’s a link to it that I’m adding to the pin.  This would enable me to do so many more awesome things! Here’s …

Fall Quinoa Salad Recipe

Today I did a little recipe post for a Corn Free Community site that I totally didn’t know existed. It’s part of a larger network of Corn Free sites. We have a Facebook group and a Blogspot site all run by the talented, dedicated Von Young. Being corn allergic or intolerant is rather stinky. Not only do some doctors NOT …

A costume that wasn’t for Halloween

Here’s my semi-recap on the costume I made in October that had nothing to do with Halloween! I did start doing a spookyish costume for me that I could potentially use this 31st if I get it done. But all the kids’ costumes were purchased this year. Bad designer! Oh well. So as I mentioned, my friend Linda Bair of …

Today update!

Today I am fast and furious sewing a dress that goes on a plane tomorrow! My choreographer friend takes a dance to Barbados, and I’m costuming her. Eek! Totally exciting. I should be sewing instead of typing this. So much work to get done! The dance is based on a novel set in the time of the French Revolution. A …

Getting Inspired and a Guest Blog Post!

Good morning! I am currently hard at work attempting to finally organize myself. I’m working on getting my garage, or 1/3ish of it anyway, set up to be my sewing studio. I had it in the closet of the spare room/husband’s office, and that just isn’t working out for anyone. So to the three-car (for the family with none to …

Wrap Skirt Tutorial With Pockets

Here’s my first sewing tutorial posted! It’s a really fun to wear wrap skirt with pockets. Super comfy. This isn’t a new thing I just made, however I just finally got everything together and pictures shrunk to web size, so now I can share it with you. Oh, and we’re nearing the end of National Sewing Month. If you haven’t …

Updating.

I am not a dutiful blogger. Yet. I ignored this site, other than deleting spam comments, for six weeks. But I have some upcoming posts, so I’m cleaning house. Updating software. Changing links. If things are awry and you’re actually visiting my site, I apologize profusely. Things will be normal soon. At least that’s the mantra I keep using in …
