Hawaiian Haystacks

30 Sep

My life has been all consumed lately by dragons. Three of them to be exact. And three little girls who so desperately want me to finish said dragons. Welcome, Halloween costume extravaganza! I was only going to make one – the other two were going to be hula girls…and then they saw the shiny fabric for the first dragon, and “I want to be a dragon too!!!” How do you say no to that? Well, you don’t. So, I have pictures and recipes stacking up, waiting to be blogged about, and instead I’ve been cutting, pinning, unpicking (a sad reality when I sew), and piecing together three dragons. They are going to be awesome!

All consuming sewing projects also call for relatively fast dinners. I love Hawaiian Haystacks because  everyone can tailor (haha…no pun intended) to their tastes. We call them ‘birdies nests’ at our house and the kids have fun stacking them up and arranging all their toppings.
