Technical difficulties, I renamed a folder on picasa, and alot of my recent posts are now missing pictures...I will be working on this, asap, please visit my other colorful posts!
Daughter Kate has been at camp all this week, and here it is Thursday, and I haven't taken advantage of the quiet time to get some projects done. Good news is that my sewing corner in my bedroom has been re-organized, and I put priority projects on top of the pile. The whole room needed cleaning badly, so I have been doing this instead of sewing. But this last skirt from my thrifting adventures at the local Good Will will finally get is redo, I promised, right? Tut is at the end of this post.
Strawberry Crunch Cake.
YUM, with icecream, poolside!

3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
¼ c soft butter
¼ c sugar
1/3 c all purpose flour
Sift together first 4 ingredients; cut in shortening. Combine milk and egg; stir into flour mixture; blend well. Spread in greased 9x13 baking pan. Spoon berries over; sprinkle with ½ cup sugar. Mix butter, ¼ cup sugar, and 1/3 cup flour; crumble over berries. Bake in 425 oven 35 to 40 min. Serve warm with ice cream. Makes 8 servings.
Here is a little gem I found at St. Pauls Lutheran's rummage sale:, it is hanging above my sewing machine now.
Thrift Pile Skirt Redo, Part 5
Remember back at this post, I bragged that I had purchased a number of items at Good Will, and I had plans for all of them. Well here is the last redo, a stylish fabric on net over a black underskirt, that was just too small on me, and it was too "fancy" to put an elastic band on. So I decided to do the simplest thing of all and just roll the "no-waist" over twice, to get the waist the right size. Sew simple right? Here are a few steps in pics.
Here at the top of the cut zipper, I zigzagged a number of times to make sure the zipper doesn't pull off the end
