Thank you for your help on how to care for my new linen placemats and napkins. You weren't kidding when you said they would get wrinkled after washing!
I ironed them and then went to the fabric store, where I found this green print. I cut out shamrocks and will applique one onto a corner of each napkin. Doing the first one is always fun, but the question is, will I finish all four. ;0) I only have 17 days, so I'd better get busy.
I also wanted to show you my homemade buttermilk. I got the recipe from Amy at Simple Folk and it was so easy to make!
All you need is: cultured buttermilk for your starter, whole milk and a quart jar. Go HERE for the recipe.
Tonight, I put the buttermilk to good use by making Amy's Sugar Cookie Cake.
It has a delicious topping and the cake is moist and really does taste like a sugar cookie! We enjoyed a piece with a glass of milk while watching The Secret Garden.
Well, I'm off to enjoy the weekend with my family. I'll talk to you all soon!
