The Flowerbed Pajama's (SSW:SE) {Oywn & Esme from Everyday Style by Lotta Jansdotter}


I'm a terrible host.
We are into the second month of the Seasonal Sew Wardrobe and I'm just now sharing my first and second piece!
It is time to bring the hammer down and get moving!

I'm currently working on my 1940's pajamas, after which I'll move onto my Aunt's pajama's and hopefully get to my brother-in-law's pajamas before too long!

But you didn't come here to read about me falling behind and trying to get myself into gear...nope. You came to read about my "Flowerbed Pajamas" and all the details are below!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cheesecake + Gluten Free Ginger Cookies!


If you like pumpkin pie, you will LOVE this cheesecake. It's the idea of pumpkin pie but improved so it's creamier, yummier and the perfect balance of cheesecake and pumpkin. I found the original recipe (almost already completely gluten free) here; http://blog.dollhousebakeshoppe.com/2011/11/mini-pumpkin-cheesecake-with-maple.html?m=1

I know pumpkin is traditionally a fall thing but this recipe is so good, it should be an all year round tradition. 

We start off with an (optional) gluten free ginger cookie crust. An extra step but so worth it! 

(PLUS, they're cookies so if you're not feeling the full on cheesecake, make a batch of these, with some pumpkin cream cheese filling for ginger-pumpkin whoopie pies! Here's a pumpkin cream cheese dip recipe to get you started; https://www.verybestbaking.com/recipes/28469/sweet-pumpkin-dip#sm.001rua8w7k58e1b104g1gznijtpy8

Or eat them with just some milk. They're good like that too.)

June Stashbusting Overview

To celebrate the half-year gone by I grabbed an old photo from back in the beginning of my blogging days and the series Wildflower Wednesday. Where every Wednesday, I shared photos of different wildflowers that grow around our area. (You can see them HERE)


June I didn't BUY any fabric but my cousin did gift me some!
Which I haven't measured, but find it kind of interesting because I got fabric from my Grandmother last year around this time and it also grew my stash. 
Thankfully, we in the stashbusting group can choose to not count gifted fabric as "stash adding" and I'm doing that yet again! ;) 

But how much was sewn??


I sewed a lot more projects then I've shared on the blog. 
(Due to a crazy and out of the ordinary schedule I am quite behind!)

3 yards       - Pajama Pants for TaMera (Not yet blogged)
3 1/2 yards - Marigold Dress for TaMera (Not yet blogged)
2 2/3 yards - Kiomi Dress for Kimberly (Not yet blogged)
2 1/4 yards - Owyn Pajama Pants (Not yet blogged)


14 1/2 yards sounds like a pretty good number to me!

Overall, I'm pretty happy with that number! 

"Sew..."


9 3/4 yards - January 
15 7/8 yards - February
14 7/8 yards - March
2 yards - April
7 5/8 yards - May

Equals...

64 5/8 yardsssssssssss of fabric sewn*!!!!

*So far this year

Wow!! I'm extremely happy with that number!

It's July 1st and I have so much planned to sew and share with you all!!
Happy Fri-YAY!! ;)
