I'm guessing that we are just beginning to feel the effects of the heat wave that has gripped the middle of the country for a while now. I've mentioned before that Tuesday night around here is Brownie Tuesday night, and heat or no, my hungry hordes expect Brownie Tuesdays.
Last night's batch of brownies had sprinkles on top, inspired by the Blond Duck. I used my usual recipe, found here. But baking sprinkles into the top of box mix brownies is also awesome.
I used instant chocolate pudding. I didn't feel like fussing with melting chocolate and all the rest of it, and the boys wanted chocolate pudding on their Brownie Tuesdays. Topped with whipped cream and sprinkles, it was a fun dessert.
Yesterday, the postman brought me something I didn't need: more fabric. But I found sweater fabric on sale, and remembered that back in the late 80s, I wore sweater outfits in the winter time. I thought I'd try my hand at a couple, since the fabric was on sale for $4 per yard. If I waste $24 (2 pieces of fabric), well, it kept me amused for a while. The top color is a very pale yellow, and the bottom one is maroon and pink.
I also got a blue embroidered gauze, pink embroidered, and plum knit.
So, here's the plan:
Blue gauze - a line summer dress (1 yard)
Pink - summer dress (1.5 yard)
Green linen - skirts for me and lawyer daughter (2.5 yards)
White linen - skirts for me and lawyer daughter (2.5 yards)
turquoise cotton - summer dress and...? (3 yards)
Yellow windowpane fabric - Long sleeved spring dress and maybe a line summer dress (4 yards)
There's also sewing to be done for a stuffed mouse's birthday, but that's a story for Friday or Saturday. I have to keep you wondering, don't I?
