hungry! We roasted a huge organic butternut with olive oil, sea salt and pepper.. pureed it, added curry, marsala, cumin, alittle chicken broth and milk.... I had pre made organic wontons, stuffed them with basil goat cheese, baked for 10 min... added them to the sauce and WOW!!!
I just had to blog about it cause it was that good! Me n' the Bald Man really need to make our own recipe book!

There's nothing like a new dress! Here is my next dress project... should be a Quickie! Slinky lips fabric (from Vogue Fabrics) will be the upper and skirt part of the dress but the middle gathered part will be some sexy black stretch lace fabric (From Ultra Fabrics)
More from Rex's! The fabric above and left is one of the softest cottons I've ever touched and its a stretch fabric! It was only $12.99!

Its a bit more 'see thru' than I thought it would be... but I can always wear a black tank top under it if I think I need to. Bald Man loves it!!! I do think it came out good... and it was SO fast to make. There are 2 other versions to make in this pattern I'm gonna try a different one next month.

Here is a dress my friend Sam brought me back from Syria.. Its a gorgeous rich brown color with lots of embroidery. I'm thinking I will take it in at the waist,add a zipper and take up at the hem so I can get more wear out of it. Its to pretty to just wear around the house or as a cover up!
Thank You Sam!
Sweet Sam also brought me back a silver and beige costume... which needs altering so it will fit 'up top'.... after I finish up my beaded beauty and red hot I plan to adjust it too!!

The Silk Dupioni Disaster is DONE! And its pretty... I didn't really want this blouse to be tight but to elimanate most of the wrinkle issue I had to made it tight... which made it sexier than I was going for... but whatever. I had to make it work!!!!! I'll post a pic as soon as the skirt is done.

Check out my Poodle Bagz!!! I made them both from NL6574. I got this awesome vinyl fabric off ebay. It was only like $17 for 5yds! And just look at all the little poodles all over it!!!!
The patterns are actually kinda plain but this fabric livens it up.. I lined both bags, added inside pockets and cell phone pockets... I hate bags without cell phone pockets!!!! Because if there's no cell phone pocket I spend so much time trying to find my phone in the bottom of my bag! By the time I find it, it stops ringing... very annoying!
I put together my 'holiday' blouse today... which went together fine... great pattern! I will sew it again... in another fabric!!!!!
Anyways,,, I iron and iron.... after 5 min of wearing... wrinkles... big ugly wrinkles! I don't know what I'm gonna do!
On a nicer note here is a new belly dance costume I am working on... its going to be all hand beaded! The crystals on it are the real deal too..... here is a pic ot the finished front belt... I am working on the bra and back belt now!
