Show and Tell Monday......Patchouli Rose update and a recipe

I've been hard at work the past week getting my studio ready for upcoming Patchouli Rose creations. I went through the fabrics I've been buying up for the past month....thrift store and estate sale finds that will be repurposed into gorgeous Patchouli Rose designs! Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite....

Now I'm organized and ready to get started.....once the holidays are over (which I intend to enjoy to the fullest!) my sewing machine will come out and I'll be ready to make a little magic with those stacks of gorgeous fabrics!


This week's recipe is another quick and easy one. With the holiday season in mind, here is a recipe for delicious fudge that you can make in about 5 minutes!


16 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Stir together in microwave safe bowl and cook for 90 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir well. Replace in microwave and cook for 90 seconds longer. Remove from microwave and stir until all chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth and creamy. add 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla flavoring and chopped walnuts, if desired. Pour into buttered pan and let cool before slicing.

Debbie I love your new site.I wish you great success with it. I most of all wish you wonderful hours of creating with constant and passionate inspiration.
Making clothing is like reading a good book. My mind gets lost in the story. Who will buy it, where will she wear it. Have fun! Lilli
