First of all, let me send you over to Indie-Pendence. Mary Ann published a Spotlight on my Etsy shop! I had wanted to add some new things to my shop before she posted, but time slipped away. However, I did get some sewing done this afternoon, but I forgot to recharge my camera batteries still, so you get to see some recycled images.
I sewed up three more reusable grocery totes made with vintage bed linens. Not made from the pattern above, but a lovely bright shade of yellow with zinnia and rose flowers.
And a few more of these Betsy Ross bags. They are completely lined and have 2 slip pockets on the inside with a button and loop closure. One bag is made from a very similar sheet pictured above, and then a second one is almost an exact replica of the bag below. I actually had these bags cut out since last summer. Never mind that. :)
Oh, and I ordered my first Moo Cards. They should be arriving this week sometime. Excited, excited.
Tonight for dinner we are having roast chicken. Our local grocery store have chicken roasters on sale for $.79/lb. That's cheap protein. I bought three chickens. One to bake, one to freeze, and one to boil down to make stock for chicken pot pie. I am also making these homemade rolls again. I tell you, they are the best. I marinated the whole chicken in lemon juice, basil, and garlic then generously salt and peppered it all. I have used this marinated for boneless/skinless chicken breasts before so hopefully it will work well with a whole chicken too. I will probably quarter some potatoes, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast them along with the chicken instead of mashed potatoes. Might as well use the energy my oven is already creating.
I am looking forward to chicken salad later this week made with apples and craisins.
What are all of you making/eating for Easter next Sunday? I have made no plans but already donated my free ham from Giant to the local food bank. We were thinking of something non traditional. Any suggestions?
