Under the sea...

Some sewing over the weekend - no idea where this is going as yet, but I'll see where it takes me. I usually plan my quilts, but I thought I might just play with this one, and I am really enjoying it. I am also taking notes and photos, so perhaps it may become a tutorial in the future...or maybe I'll even get up the courage to submit it to a magazine...

I also had another go at some macarons and I really think I am getting there, although the tops weren't as smooth as last time. Same recipe, but this time I substituted 35g of almond meal for cocoa, and made a dark salted chocolate buttercream to fill them. Seriously yum!

Your quilt is looking terrific and I would be happy to eat any rejected macaroons. Ann :-)

Ooh, quilt is looking good. I just bought some of that fish fabric today funnily enough. No idea what I'm going to do with it yet, but couldn't resist!

Amazing. Those perfect corners and straight lines are almost scary! Being a reformed perfectionist who now gives extra credit for crooked on purpose, I will have to make an exception and give extra credit here, too.
Funny thing is that I think I have some of those fabrics, too.

YUM! The macaroons look so good and the quilt looks fab as well. Looking forward to see where it goes.
