  •   sewsavory Great haul! Congrats! 1d
  •   tempestdevyne @headovmetal yeah I usually trying hanging near shower to get the steam and then steam ironing from wrong side with a damp pressing cloth. As long as you don't get water drops on it it's ok 1d

tempestdevyne Blooming heck, I'm even going to line the bodice....what's come over me. However now glad that I buy all the remnants at our Goodwill that make me smile. I knew this tangerine cotton would come in handy. #justifyingmyfabrichoarding #dressinaday #sewdollyclackett 4d

tempestdevyne I think it's a day for a stupid challenge. Made a flower crown/headband that I don't have a dress to go with...going out for tea to a friend's tonight. Can 8 make a matching dress from something in my stash before then? *turns up some Stone Roses very loud and starts rifling through the stash TARDIS* 4d

tempestdevyne First time I've ever found hot cross buns in Arizona in 5 Easters here. Weird...they've got green candied Angelica in them as well as sultanas, and the cross is glacé icing. Better owt than nowt though. 5d
  •   alanapaints I've never had them, but if they are the american equivalen of Irish soda bread, get used to disappointment. 5d
  •   tempestdevyne @alanapaints Haha yep I think you guessed right. These have barely any flavour, no discernible spices and an icing cross rather than a British pastry one means it can't go in the toaster. Might have to make my own again. 5d
  •   pintsizedmiabelle Ugh weird! Americans don't understand! 5d
  •   _busylizzie We have fancy ones here now, sticky date and caramel, white chic and cranberry. Just not the same as traditional ones. 5d
  •   tempestdevyne @_busylizzie actually white choc and cranberry sounds interesting. But I miss the ones I grew up with and could toast with butter 3d
