What a relaxing day! I Slept in and then made johnny cakes, sausage, and coffee. We had an ice storm today in Iowa, so Josh and I were forced to stay in.
It was the perfect day to photograph my new blouse that I finished yesterday. This blouse started out as a Colette Peony for my mother. When I gave her the dress last Christmas, the top was far too small! So I made her Peony a new top, and I decided to keep this one for me. I added a peplum to it, by cutting out a long rectangle and gathering the fabric. I would have liked a puffier peplum - but I didn't have enough fabric. Next time I will have the puffiest peplum ever, but for now I love me new peony top!
|We decided to brave the cold and the ice.|
|Pretty soon the cold was too much for us.|
|I found some kind of animal skeleton.|
I can't wait for winter to be over, this cold weather is such a downer. On the bright side, the ice storm did give me time to make some fresh bread today. I found a recipe in The Joy of Cooking for milk bread, a yeast bread with milk, butter, and an egg in it. Yum!
