Rickety Rack Recipe Swap

Rick rack, rickety rack
See the train go along the track
When I grow up I want to be an engine driver
But if I can't be that I'll be a deep sea diver.
      ~ lyrics by Gerry Rafferty, 1974

Boy oh Boy! Your entries in our Bodacious B challenge were brilliant, beautiful and breathtaking. And, oh my goodness, was it difficult to narrow it down to just a few winners. Really, it was painful! Congratulations to Lena Katrine, Wendy Price, and Tracy MacDonald (who used my favorite B ingredient, Boudreaux.). You're invited to join our Top Chef designers in next Sunday's Quickfire and grab the Winning Recipe button. 

Congratulations also to player #15, Iris. You've won a $25.00 gift certificate from Purple Onion Designs. Just e-mail me through my contact page, here, and I'll get you hooked up.


Does rickrack make you nostalgic, too? The Ben Franklin Five and Dime kept Grandma Heaton stocked with an unending supply of gingham and rickrack she used to make darling pillowcases. On the other side of my family tree, Grandma Black made adorable rickrack trimmed sundresses for me and my dolls. Ah . . . the good ole days, right?

Raid your sewing notions because our featured ingredient for our next Catered Crop Recipe Swap is rickrack. Oh, and if a few chevrons slip in disguised as rickrack, that's okay, too.

Here's how we roll . . .

  • Just use rickrack somewhere in your project.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or just add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, May 26.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.

Need some ideas? Here's a whole gallery of creative ways to use rickrack in your projects. You can click on the inspiration board above to go to a Pinterest board with the sources of these pictures and more gorgeous ideas, brilliant tutorials and a snicker or two.


Bugaboo Stamps' sugar and spice is such a perfect match for our recipe parties. Jodie says she likes drawing the sweet, "cutesy kids' graphics" but her latest passion is her salty, "cranky old boots" likes Stella, Margaret and the Gals who came after them. You'll find some adorable images and great giggles at Bugaboo Stamps Blog and the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog. One randomly picked winner will get to select Seven Free Digital Stamps.

Be sure to come back Sunday, May 20, to see what our Chefs have dished up for you with their rickrack.
