While filling vintage jars with really fun ric-rac yesterday I felt the need to play with a bit myself! I took home a rainbow of colors you might find in the jars and played with 1/2 yard pieces of different colors to see how they reacted to one another. My Pink Chalk Fabric stash was waiting patiently on the sewing table for me to use. I picked up the sunny Spring Street Swirl and started laying pieces of ric-rac out. This was my favorite combination.
Not to compete with the front I used a simple gray on the back:
I think it it works perfectly! Yellow and gray is one of my favorite color combinations!
It was a bit tricky deciding what color of thread to use, I definitely did not want to change thread with each different color of ric-rac. I ended up using Sulky 40 Color 942.
The color and sheen are perfect complement to the different shades of ric-rac!
Usually we wait to release Limited Edition Jars when we send out newsletters, but we are having so much fun with this product that we thought you might want to play too! So we created four different really big jars of Ric-Rac! You can find them HERE!
Check back here to see what we're doing with our Ric-Rac!
Last week we attended our first Saturday market of the season. We shared a veggie omelette for two, a little cake, listened to music and brought home flowers!
We also brought home these awesome mushrooms...
The first night I sauteed them with green and red peppers and made a warm spinach salad. Then a couple nights later I decided to make a little pizza! I took the dough out of the fridge to come to room temp while I chopped the mushrooms, sauteed them in olive oil with zucchini, onions, garlic and spinach.
Topped it with shaved parmesan...
Waited patiently for it to cook...
and it came out perfect!
Delicious! I can hardly wait to pick up another bag of mushrooms this weekend!
