Oh, yeah!

2014-105  I did it. Followed my mom’s recipe step-by-step. And managed to do it all without burning anything! 🙂

Tomorrow I will be delivering to the rest of the family. The most important judgement will be from my mother. I don’t know if I can live up to her standards, but I think I came pretty close, and I’m happy. Below, pics of the process.

    ¡Felicitaciones, Angie! Mi fanesca también tiene su historia: tuve que armar los ingredientes y la preparación paso a paso, buscando en recetas y sobre todo en mi memoria. Mi mamá no la tenía escrita y cuando sobrevino el Alzheimer se perdió. Finalmente lo logré y ahora sí está detalladamente descrita. ¡Saludos!

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
