Blog Share: Anne's Odds & Ends

I know I've been on  a sewing kick over the past few months, 
particularly now that I have my very own serger! And believe me there is definitely 
more to come in that department.
But today I wanted to share this awesome blog that's filled great recipes for both you and baby.
I was excited particularly by this one on how to make your own teething biscuits! I've personally been making my daughter's pureed baby food since she started taking solids but for whatever reason it hadn't occurred to me that I could go beyond the puree and actually make her teething biscuits!
Check out Anne's Odd & Ends for this homemade recipe and more!

And her daughter is just too cute!

Other recipes you'll find on her blog:

  

Ok I probably shouldn't be blogging this while I'm starving!

Happy Eating!

Happy Mother's Day To Me!

Ever wonder if all your hinting about all the things that you wish your husband would get you goes in one ear and out the next? Usually I do too...not today though! 
I may have laid this one on pretty thick, regardless, he heard me loud and clear!

High-Waisted Maxi Skirt {tutorial}

So sorry it's taken me a few weeks to get a new project up! I was actually on vacation and now I'm back and sewing again! And once again I made a skirt :) What can I say it's just in the air! This skirt is super comfy but it comes with a warning...it's NOT for beginners. In fact, unless you have the patience of a Saint, I would only attempt it if you have access to a serger. I was lucky and borrowed a friend's.
If you're brave you can accomplish this on a regular sewing machine...but don't say I didn't warn you!
