The recipes say to use the blossom.  The jelly I tasted was rather sweet, but I think it would be nice in little jars with some plain shortbread cookies at Christmastime for gifts. The dandelions are pretty prevalent alongside the roads. The state and city don't spray so unless it's a private lawn, it's likely to not have any chemicals.  Although I think they are lovely, the cooperative extension hates them as a invasive species.  The roadsides bloom yellow first with the dandelions and then purple later on in the summer with lupine and wild geraniums.

I'm not sure what we're having tonight.  It's been in the low 60's F and looking to hit 70F later this week-too hot for me to do a lot of cooking in the kitchen, I'm definitely a wimp when it comes to warm weather.   Maybe I'll do something in the dutch oven outside.

Ah ha! Thank you for helping me remember that it was you! I'm terrible with board names although I remember avatars and posts.
My goodness, that dress is fantastic! I did not see the movie, but maybe I'll give it a shot just for the costumes.

Junebug - you brought up an interesting point. In my youth, I made several sheath style dresses and a back zip was all I needed. However, at the time, my waist was 13" smaller than my hips. When I made a few dresses that were 50's influenced, many had a side zip in addition to a back zip. For the 50's wasp waist the side zip is a bonus fitting detail. Less waist definition doesn't require one.

My body no longer has a need for a side zip. :'(

And, there are no quilt police.  You may do exactly what serves your needs.  But above all, remember to enjoy the process!
