Did you read Vonna's blog about her linen ... effects from baking it??? And the results were very good! Kewl Beans. Check out her post & picture.
This is my ONE and ONLY try with Apricot Tea. it was a NANI challenge & I decided to use traditional blackwork motifs with non-traditional silk colors. I did manage to get the color I wanted with apricot tea bags & soaking in a large pan.
Does anybody want to be in an e-mail recipe exchange? If yes, send me an e-mail [link in sidebar] I have an e-mail & need to send it to ten people. I have a feeling most of the people I know already are involved. I do have a nice cookie recipe -- a very EASY recipe. So, let me know.
I spent the entire afternoon looking for a scrap of linen .... knew I had a piece of blue-green linen & the hunt was on. Meanwhile, found so many nice patterns, buttons, over dye fibers, etc. Found three cat buttons + the pattern that goes with them!! All in one bag : ) Found 'Moon Garden' pattern -- not sure if I have the linen & over dye stuff. What an enjoyable afternoon!! My closet has many treasures. I'm looking forward to getting some of these going in 2007.
Anna: if you like the LHN I'm working on [YES, there is a row of stitching on that linen - tho the photo is quite krappy] there is another one by LNS you might prefer (totally cute rabbits)
It is called Morning Berries.

I saw this one AND I was so tempted to purchase it; however, opted to work on Herb Garden first!!
