More French Macarons

As previously mentioned, I’m obsessed with macarons. Here’s the latest batch: chocolate peanut butter, raspberry chocolate, chocolate with chocolate caramel and plain with chocolate caramel. This was my first time making chocolate meringue (with cocoa powder in the meringue) and I may have to tweak some of the cooking times or temperatures as they came…

WIP: Neon quilt 2

I continued working on my neon quilt. Love that image above. I just love the way all these colors look together. I think all those strips sewn together would make a nice quilt just by themselves! Today I worked on the binding. I had bought some jelly rolls to make binding. I started by finding…

A while ago (yeah, this is a throw-way-back post) I played in a Game based on the Hunger Games called the Famine Game. My team was chosen to represent District 8: Textiles and we needed costumes which represented us and our district. Since we’re all girls, we tend to go with some shade of pink.…
