Madame brought home the bacon...














well, ...some bacon anyway .... ..... of course, not the actual bacon, you understand .... but, at least a sampling of the loot that was distributed to winners and in Madame's case...for honourable mention... .... .. 5 fat quarters and 8 full square meters of Hoffman fabrics ... there are several that I quite like and the others may become giveaways ... more to a quilter's liking perhaps...











it is quite a bit of fabric ....
























she's pondering it ....
















~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~













....... and......I tried this wonderful recipe day before yesterday..... definitely wanted to make sure you checked out my other blog to get it.... you have to make them! I'm serious. That good. I can almost taste them with a bit of maraschino juice added and a couple of bits of cherries in the mix as well as on top for the festive season. It's not too far away to begin the testing........you have to know which will make the cut in the baking department long before you begin ... and it will soon be time to begin the "can-be-frozen-for-up-to-a-month" type. I know it isn't even Hallowe'en yet...but, you know how the downhill slide picks up pace by beginning of November... I'm not waiting... even if we are still painting and fixing...

I'm baking to save my sanity..and sipping wine out on the patio just to celebrate the small jobs we are constantly ticking off the long list.... enjoying some absolutely stunning days of a great late summer. It was +31 C yesterday...whew... hotter than some middle of the summer days.....the house was still up at +24.5 this morning.....

Thank you for showing her in progress again. I love her face. You are so very talented. I do hope the renos will end one day soon. But then again, what will you do if they do end?

It's a shame they didn't let you choose the fabrics eh! :O)

Wipso said...

Really lovely fabrics. It's sometimes nice to work in fabrics you wouldn't usually choose yourself especially if it's for sale because we don't all like the same. I have made cards in colours I don't like before and they have always sold :-) A x

Your Madame Pompador is so very beautiful right down to her beautiful shoes. How could it be that she only won "honorable mention"? You are a wonderful crafter and artist. I couldn't find your name anywhere or a personal profile.
