I certainly can't recommend it as a culinary delight when it came to eating, although the "shell" was pretty tasty. The taco fixings included hamburger (chocolate covered raisins), lettuce (cornflakes covered with green-tinted vanilla frosting, tomatoes (chopped Swedish Fish) and cheddar cheese (sliced circus peanuts), with some dollops of sour cream (canned whipped cream).
Corey had asked if we could be on the lookout for the new Bonnie and Camille fabric. I was so happy when I was able to grab a fat quarter stack for her. But I never expected to receive this in the mail! It's a beautifully quilted journal cover.Thanks, Corey--it's a treasure!

She said we could do whatever we wanted with the obi, even cutting them up. After I mentioned that this would make a great bag or zippered pouches, she thought that would be an ideal use.
