Creative Chicks: The Best Refried Beans EVER (according to me!)

Creative Chicks: The Best Refried Beans EVER (according to me!) I love beans and so does the rest of my family but I never thought of canning my own! I think I'll get a pressure cooker and try it!

New Swimsuit

I have found that KWIK SEW patterns are way better than the other brands! So simple and easy to use. I'm going find more of these patterns. This is the second swimsuit I have made. This one turned out so much better than the one I made last year. Made it using straight stitch and zigzaged the seams. I use clear swimsuit elastic for the first time. I was so easy to use. All in all I am happy with this one.

It might even fit her next year too. It's a little big every where but not to big to notice.

Here's some more fabric finds. Not sure what I'll make with it but I liked the colors. The pink plaid fabric is a heavy weight cotton almost feels like canvas. I think it would make a great tote bag.

Bargain Shopping

It only cost me $10.00 to give my kitchen a whole new look! I don't understand why people go to walmart when you can just go to a second hand store! Convenience I guess but I love picking up a bag of things for a few dollars even when I don't know what I'll do with it. Just like the shower curtain. Yup that's what's on my table. Looks good huh! The little perpetual calendar is my favorite. We had a little argument over who would change the numbers every day but we fine got that all worked out. And I couldn't pass up the glass milk jar even if it's not an antique. It has a cute cow on one side. hmmm wonder what I'll find next time.
