Note- this was written last week but I never had a chance to post. I’ve been a busy girl! I figure better late than never, the latter of which is the case for so many of my ideas…
It feels like there really hasn’t been much going on lately in my creative spaces. I’m surrounded by things that are inspiring and strike my fancy (note the lovely daffodils above), but haven’t had much umph to get to work on projects.
Does cooking count? If so, I made one of our favorite dishes- Moroccan Chicken cooked in parchment paper. It’s a Martha Stewart recipe that we just can’t get enough of and end up making at least 3-4 times over the cold-weather months. Now that the weather is starting to get warmer, I decided to make it for the last time this week. Our little kitchen gets so hot, and it’s just too miserable to have the oven going at that high temperature for so long unless it’s cold outside.
Jo-Ann Fabrics had a sale on Simplicity Patterns this week. I feel as if I’m getting a little ahead of myself since there’s really no way that I have the skills yet to sit down and make these items, but they were all $1.99 and I would like to eventually use some of these projects for my Etsy shop. Once it’s set up, that is!
In other news, I did also find some fabric that I fell in love with and will be turned into napkins. We don’t use paper napkins anymore since they’re wasteful and costly, so I wanted to have some more cloth ones around. Dark cloth ones with big, wild patterns so they don’t show the stains. I think this should do well, no?
Please ignore the multitude of wrinkles! I’m a conscientious pre-washer, but I tend not to iron until I actually start a project…
