35 Loaves of Banana Bread DONE & 15 or so more to go! My daughter tells me it is delicious, I will take her word for it! I will be happy not to see or smell another mashed banana for at least another 12 months.
I have successfully (at least I think so) completed 24 fabric flowers using my friend Shelia's curtains! The remainder of the curtains will be quilts for my children's school auction. But, SIGH, I will save that for a later post. Back to the flowers...so EASY. I simply ripped one inch pieces of fabric, the width of the fabric....I think it was 40 inches or so? I like the frayed edges of the linen fabric. I then gathered one side and "shaped" the piece into a flower. I stitched an X in the middle of the flower and glued a fabric covered button or something from my stash in the center. I then glued a pin onto the back and VIOLA! 2 dozen flowers!
I also finished my MERRY banner for my fireplace today...my first decoration to go up. I found the freezer paper stencil tutorial on the Everday Chaos Blog (link at the bottom). I also made HO HO HO for a friend. I have tried different methods to attach the burlap letters to the jute cord, I have decided that E-6000 is the quickest & easiest. Have a look....!
