So, guess what! I made the jalapenos and they're very yummy, approved by my pickled jalapeno loving husband. Also, my friend Joy gave me some kefir to use so I'll start making that for soaking grains a la Nourishing Traditions. It incubates at room temperature, so no more accidentally killing my yogurt in the oven while I prep for dinner!
Also, I'm going to try to do the sew along at Gertie's Sewing Blog for the Lady Jane Grey coat, which is on it's way to me as we speak... I have a cotton jaquard in grey and yellow that should be smashing with my grey skirt... but as to lining, a silk charmeuse in ??? turquoise? green? grey? I'd prefer a surprising lining, of course, but haven't decided yet what color... maybe in orange??? Erg...
I also bought fabric for curtains in the living room, finally! It's very pretty, but I seem to be unable to find time to sew!!! Now that school planning is done I may have a few days next week to get them put together. I bought curtain rods already and I can't wait to see it all done and in my living room!
Speaking of fabric, I have a new favorite online fabric store: Hawthorne Threads
They have beautiful, modern fabrics which you can search by color! So cool... and there are discounts for volume orders, as well. Go check them out!
