A Walk in the Park

Just a few photos from a walk in the park today. We have this really great little dog park about a block and half away and we end up taking Q there several times a week. I also got a good chance to take some better pictures of the eyelet skirt in action (against a dilapidated building - deconstruction chic!) Oh! and I want the pretty blue dresser in the window of that store. But I think I can find some glass knobs, buy a thrift store dresser, and paint it blue for less than $75. Maybe for a weekend project?

In the past few days...

  1. One of the best combinations I've found for our leftover Caribbean Rum is Jones Root Beer. I know, it sounds a little weird, but the vanilla flavor in the root beer goes really well with the rum and a little slice of lime gives it a nice bite. So tasty!2. A new version of the banana ice cream. This one has raspberries, blueberries and honey in it. I think it would have been  a little better if I had frozen the berries with the bananas... the texture was a little too much like a smoothie. The flavor was still good though!3. Roasted Red Pepper Hummus. I had a couple roasted red peppers left in a jar, so I used those, the garlic with it, lemon juice, chickpeas, tahini (homemade!) Served it with some pita bread and it made a great after work snack. My little food processor was getting a workout!4. A picture of Q for the road!

Green Jersey Circle Skirt

In my sewing frenzy last night, I made a circle skirt using the tutorial on MADE. I thought I had been charging my camera battery all night, but it must not have been connected correctly because I got a total of two pictures out of the battery. Neither of which were of the skirt. So I had my fiance take a pic with his cell phone (why does picture get shortened to "pic" in my mind when it was taken with a phone?) But first Q and I waited for the fiance while he did laundry.

I am so in love with this dress! It took no time at all and it is suuuuper comfy. Will definitely be furiously sewing many more.
