It has been a fairly busy week here but I did completely finish the diaper bag and it turned out really well. I bought some more Pellon and I plan to make one more at least - I figure I need one for myself now.
I also made this little bag from the Winsome Baby - Art to Heart pattern book. This is a little bag to hold a couple of diapers and some wet nappys -- isn't it cute. I am going to make a little changing pad as well with the blue and green fabric.
But I decided I need a little change of pace for a while. I started on this little Japanese fabric wall hanging. It isn't that big - 14" x 36" So I pulled out all my Japanese fat quarters and such and scanned the pattern into the computer. It is all going to be hand appliqued - so something I can work on instead of the Dear Jane -LOL!!
I don't usually post recipes on my blog but I made the best muffins last weekend. I like to have some muffins to take to work with me for morning coffee. I have a terrible time finding the exact recipe that I like and for the things that I have in the cupboard, so I made up my own recipe to use a couple of old bananas and some oat bran and ground flax, and to use up some really hard crunchy Kashi cereal that Jim bought at Costco. The Kashi cereal is like a granola - so I would think any old granola would work - just to add a bit of crunch instead of adding nuts. So - since it is my own recipe I thought I would share it.
