I’ll Take a Chai With My Bed Sheets: A Couch Adventure
We had a relaxing weekend, although I always wish it was longer. Today was a vacation day so we spent a leisurely morning watching an interesting Netflix film called The Willoughbys. Then we did a Star Wars themed workout together. Overall, it was a nice break from the daily routine. Tomorrow, it is back to the daily grind.
Recently, I won The Honeysuckle Cookbook: 100 Healthy, Feel-Good Recipes to Live Deliciously from Goodreads. If you know me, you know how much I love reading cookbooks, so this win was quite exciting. Not only does the book have beautiful pictures, but the recipes greatly interest me. Most of the recipes have some sort of Asian inspiration which would definitely feed my Chinese food cravings. I am looking forward to trying out a few of these recipes. I’ll let you know how they turn out.
Bed Sheet to Dress
If you remember last week, I mentioned that the bodice I had constructed this past spring for my daughter was too small. I added a panel to the back as an extension and used snaps instead of buttons. It turned out better than I expected and I think it will fit her for more than one season.
The fabric that I used for this dress was a vintage bed sheet that I found at Goodwill. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would be perfect for a little girls dress.
The pattern I used for the dress was Penelope and Catherine for the sleeves.
And of course every little girl needs a matching purse to go with her dress. I used the Petunia Purse pattern.
And here is my little model.
This week, I worked on noses and lips in my sketching class.
I started another mini class and we talked about face mapping.
Quick Practice sketch- 15 minutes
I am joining the T day ladies hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is one that I found at the local grocery store. I love chai so I thought I would give this Twinings, Chai, French Vanilla a try. I am not a huge black tea fan and it is difficult to find chai in green or white tea. I am thinking this would be tasty with some coconut milk and that the milk would help dilute the black tea. Maybe I will try that tomorrow morning as my wake up tea.
Happy Tea Day,
