Finally a Sprocket!...and yet another pizza

I finally got around to sewing a sprocket pillow.  I had a blast picking the fabrics and it came together quite nicely.  I bought some fat quarters that had the colors I wanted and played with how they looked next to each other.  It was alot of fun and the instructions from Cluck. Cluck. Sew.  were well-written and easy to follow.  I would definitely make another one.  Right now it is on my screened in porch, but in the winter, it may find a new home on the chair outside the door of my craft room.

Please excuse the messiness of the above plate, but this pizza was so yummy, we almost ate it all before I realized I had not taken a picture!  As you know, I love trying new pizza recipes and this one was so easy, it was hard to believe that I hadn't come up with it sooner!  I started as I usually do, with a Freschetta crust(or Boboli-whichever you prefer and can find).    Then I covered it with shredded mozzarella.  I washed and thinly sliced Campari tomatoes and placed them all over the top of the cheese.  I then drizzled the tomatoes with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette but I was thinking next time I would maybe use a balsamic dressing.  If you beat me to it, let me know how it was!  Sprinkle liberally with grated parmesan cheese and bake according to the crust directions.  It was particularly delicious.  I call it my tomato pizza(very creative on my part!).  

  Look at this adorable fabric I found.  I LOVE cats and cats that are wearing people clothes are my all-time favorite!  These cats are doing yoga poses.  I was going to make a yoga mat cover but I thought that was too predictable.  I have decided on something else.  Soon, I can show you.  I think it will turn out cute.  I have had this pattern for a while and I am finally going to use it.  After I decided what I wanted to make, I found a t-shirt in a catalog that had three cats doing yoga and it said "kitty yoga" on it.  It was on clearance, so I ordered it. I am such a sucker for a matching set! 

I hope everyone has a great week ahead and is enjoying beautiful weather wherever you are.  Take care.  Nancy

  2. Nancy - now we're even! ;)

    I *love* that sprocket pillow. I even "pinned" it, so you know it's on my short list! And I love that cat fabric, even though, despite my cat project, I'm really not all that into cats. Well, we have two of them, but...well maybe I am into cats. Anyway that fabric is adorable!!!
