Hi everyone and happy Sunday evening! I just want to start out by saying my oldest turned 21 this past week and boy was that more difficult than I care to admit! We took him out to dinner and he ordered a beer with dinner-yikes-is that my baby ordering a beer? He normally chooses Rocky Road brownies from my Mr. Food cookbook but this year he was game to try "Knock You Naked Brownies" as his birthday treat. They were a big hit. That Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond sure knows a thing or two about recipes!
bapron which is a bib/apron. The pattern was great, the instructions easy to follow. I think they turned out pretty great. I backed the bug one with pink tie-die flannel. I backed the pink puppy bapron with brown minky.
burp cloths from a tutorial I found on Craftaholics Anonymous-super easy and quick to whip up. I used soft flannel for both sides and prewashed all my fabrics. Having had two boys myself, it was fun to use pink in my baby sewing.
I ordered this decorative daisy stitch foot for my machine and I am anxious to try it out.
I decided to branch out some more in my blogging interactions and I joined a fat quarter swap at Ninth Street Notions. I talked briefly to my swap partner by way of a quick email and she is really nice. This will be fun. I love fat quarters so I am hoping to pick up more ways to use them from this experience. I also signed up for the Friday Night Sew In from Handmade by Heidi. It is this Friday night and I have several choices of projects I want to sew for that. All this and it is Valentine's Day this week which is big doings at my Pre K classroom. Also, next week I have my Winter break so I have a week off. I hope to spend some serious time in my craft room!
I hope you all have a fun and creative week. Take care. Nancy
