$5 or Less Pantry Challenge: 7/23/2015

How did you do with our $5 or less pantry building challenge this week?

Here’s what I added to my pantry for less than $5 …




I purchased this fresh ginger root for $3.58.

Here’s what I’m adding to my pantry with it:

A portion of it will be used as an ingredient in cider fire ...

A portion of it will be used to make crystallized ginger which is good for nausea and indigestion ...

A portion of it will be used to plant so I can grow my own ...

And any peelings, scraps or leftover pieces will be dehydrated and turned into ginger powder!


Now, it’s your turn, what did you add to your pantry last week for $5 or less?

Sewing Day Accomplishments: July 21st, 2015

This week my sewing day had to take place in small increments of time over a two day period.  My husband has been very sick and my schedule has been anything but normal. 

 Here's what I got done ...


I completed one of the two pillows I'm making from scraps!


Here it is in it's new home ... an antique wing-backed jar that sits by the hearth!
(The coloring in this picture is off a bit, so sorry ... the pillow really sets the chair off and I am so pleased with my scrappy project.)


Update:  I was asked how I made envelope style pillow covers ... here's a link explaining the process ... http://heyletsmakestuff.com/2014/01/06/simple-envelope-enclosure-tutorial/
