busy part 1 - linen legs and dimply cake

I have been busy. I am finally finishing projects that I started, well, so long ago it's embarassing to detail the exact date.

First up is the linen legs. A little creepy but so useful. My great boots do not stand up on their own so I made substitute legs out of linen, wool roving, lentils (at the bottom for stability), lavender (to discourage beasties from the lentils and to make my boots smell nice) and my precious ribbon from my 2006 port2port press calendar (the new one available nov 17!).

I also made a dimply plum cake which was so delicious that it was consumed before I could take a picture of it. It looked very close to the picture in the link except I sprinkled powdered sugar over it before serving. I subbed silken tofu for eggs and didn't add the butter as the recipe already called for oil. Yum.

I think those boot legs are the lavender as
beastie control.
