Today's Adventures in Domesticity

So Someone Who Shall Remain Nameless informed me last night that I need to update this here blog, post haste.  I apologize.  I didn't realize I had any sort of audience!  I've done a few of the recent TWD recipes--the oatmeal nutmeg scones, the maple cornmeal biscuits--but never got around to posting, and here we are in July now!

I probably will do next week's recipe, though it violates all kinds of principles for me.  While I get on that wagon, I should remark that I am steadily on the sewing wagon.  The number of patterns I have right now is ridiculous.  The number of mostly-but-not-quite-finished projects is worse.  But here's a peek at what's actively "on the needles,"  so to speak:

Elizabeth Hartman "Little Leaves" quilt  (you can see an example here) as a gift
Elizabeth Hartman "Birthday Cake" quilt for me

I'm still making blocks for each of the quilts.

Clothing in progress:
Vogue wrap dress (needs some taking up at the shoulder, binding at the neck, and buttons to close it)
Colette Sencha top (needs buttons and holes and one back facing attached.  I was making this with a friend in Colorado.)
Colette Crepe dress (still working on the muslin for this, trying to get the bodice to fit properly.)
Simplicity Cynthia Rowley top
(technically done, but I want to add the twisty collar and it needs to be handsewn on)
Butterick sundress (just cut this out of black, white, and red stretch sateen)

Pictures to come...maybe...?
