It looks so good! There's a similar recipe in Jill Conner Browne's Sweet Potato Queens books that's called "Pig Candy." I think they use brown sugar on the bacon.

I thought I was the only one (who didn't like donuts.) I've never really told anybody. But good for you for figuring out a yummy recipe. Even though I don't like them, your pic makes them look good enough to eat! I might have to make em just to make SURE my taste hasn't changed. Who knows, I may end up a convert!

Awesome find! Everything looks great. I especially love the kitty sitting pretty in a classic pose. I'm intrigued by the shoes. I'd love to see the clothes too sometime if you ever want to post them.  Two of my best friends do the Renaissance Faires in my state every year and I always love the clothes they wear and all the accessories.

Thanks everyone for the sweet comments Grin! It really is weird but I did get really excited about getting to pick out fun fabric for them, and then I was actually anxious to try them out. Hmm, maybe "that time" will be something to look forward to?  Tongue  heehee   If you are crafty at all, it is worth it to make your own, because it is soo much cheaper and you get to pick out fun fabrics. It's kinda like shopping for clothes for your ________ (ahem).  Eve Ensler would be proud?
8  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Cotton Flannel Menstrual Pads on: January 05, 2010 11:53:15 AM
I decided to make my own menstrual pads as I was not liking the design of the store-bought cloth menstrual pads that I owned. They were the kind where you put a pad in the back of a holder type thing and then snap the whole thing around the crotch of the panties.  It seemed too labor-intensive (I'm  loathe to do much when I'm in the "monthly way.") Plus it was hard to tell when things might have leaked, until they already had. 

So, I designed my own. Looking at other tutes, I noticed that most used cotton flannel and old washclothes or towels for material. I got on etsy and ordered some fun cotton flannel (2 half yards for under $13 total.)  Then I sketched out a design on a piece of printer paper folded in half. I then added 5/8" around that for seam allowance, and cut the design out. From there i kinda winged it. I used old buttons (as flat as I could find) for fasteners, because that's all I had. I made two designs (as far as how the pads are held in the holders-one has little straps at the top and bottom, underwhich you just slide in a pad, and one has a piece of flannel that holds the pads.) I'll see which works best. I made one holder with towel between the flannel layers, and one without (for each color) making the one with towel for "heavy" days.  All the pads have one layer of towel in between the flannel. I also made everything with finished edges, because the store-bought ones just serged the edges, but after many washings they were falling apart.

With the fabric I had left I made a little travel pouch for holding used pads.

All in all, I think they're pretty cute.
I'm planning to design some less bulky ones that are more streamlined for "lighter" days.

I completely agree with you. The jacket area doesn't look that great. My art teacher didn't like it either and was mad that I chose that picture of John because it had that great expanse of black (the jacket.) But, being a student pressed for time, I chose that picture because of that, because it seemed like it would be easier.  I actually did use a soft pencil and it still looks like crap. Oh well. Thanks for the comment though.
