Patricia's Fish Tacos

Patricia is from Costa Rica and the most amazing cook. I just have to share her Fish Taco recipe.
Sorry there is no photo, we ate them too quick!

Fish Tacos
4 pieces of Catfish
1t Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c Dijon mustard
1 t Tabasco sauce (or more for your taste)
salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cornmeal
1/4c-1/2c Olive Oil

Soak catfish in marinade for 2 to three hours, covered in refrigerator.
After marinading fish; roll in cornmeal, then drop in simmering Olive Oil
(medium heat), cook 2-3 minutes on each side depending of the thickness of the fish.
Drain fish on a paper towel.
Serve with salsa, sliced avocado, and Patricia's special mix of 1 part Mayo and 2 parts lime juice.

Along side of this we had my homemade sour cream white bread and strawberry jam.
I will save the bread recipe for another is defiantly worth waiting for!!

Little Sewist come to visit

Last night was so fun. I thought my family was just being invited to dinner- but instead as soon as we were done with the most amazing fish tacos I was grilled and interviewed about my days as a "model" (sounds much more glamorous than it ever was), also lots of questions about pattern and clothing designing.

Oh I cant forgot to tell you .... all these questions were posed by a 9 year old. She even got out her Singer sewing machine; to see if I could fix it. Nope, I couldn't. So we packed her sister and Mom and headed to my house to check out my studio/office. (Their mom is on the new cover for my Spring Fling Apron pattern).

Out came all the new skirts for Suzie Swirl- they looked so adorable in them I cant wait to show them to all of you! My two little visitors tried on every apron and skirt I had in their size. What fun visitors they were! They each packed up a bag from my scrap box -to make some "designs" at home, I cant wait to see what they make! It's so fun to see young crafters developing right before my eyes!

Sneak Peak

I cant hold back any longer, I am so excited to share with you.... Suzy Swirl Skirts, this is a pattern for 3 skirts . The other views will added to the cover soon! We have been perfecting this pattern for quite a while. What do you think? I am having fun making all kinds of fabric mixes with this pattern, with the bow -and without. Little girls patterns are so fun to make, I dream about them in my sleep!
