* flower pin

Posted on March 21st, 2006 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

This is from my new Japanese craft book, Corsage and Something Like Corsage, which is like the best name ever for a Japanese craft book.

I first tried this really cute frayed petal, loopy middle flower, but it was a total bust. Still not quite sure where I went wrong with that one. So this is mark 2, and I’m really liking it. The fabric is from a swap, which I think is fitting since I’m sending it to someone to atone for being a month overdue on my swap package (so bad). It’s great big compared to the other flower pins I’ve made lately, like 3 or 4 inches across.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
