I needed another pair of shorts to wear at home, so I looked through my stash and discovered that I had enough fabric left over from a long skirt I made for my voice recital last year! Imagine that, I bought the required amount needed for the skirt and had enough left over to squeeze out a pair of shorts!

I got this orchid plant more than a year ago and it finally bloomed! DH told me that orchid plants bloom about every 3 years!

GF Brownies and Fabric

I made these brownies for a potluck dinner following the instructions on the box. Mistake! It was so oily! Yuk! I didn't care for it being so greasy. I think I need to substitute something for the oil next time...applesauce maybe. I think I like Pamela's better.

I went to a garage sale and got these fabrics for $3. I just washed them and the purple one had about 1 1/2 - 2 yards in the bag! It was a great deal. The red one didn't have a price on it and it was about a yard. The blue one had about 1/4 yard and the colorful one had 6 " wide strips of fabric in it. I'd say that it was a good deal!
