I finally finished Em's quilt and Amy Butler kitty pillow today... whew.. I had to put the sewing machine away because I was just waiting for it to go on strike. Note the flannel I used on the kitty's face.. this looks like one slightly irritated calico kitty (maybe I shoved the bone crease tool too far when I was working the corners...N'est pas?). The material I used on the face looks like it has eyebrows? Must be a calico Siamese : ) I then just worked on tracing out some patterns on my pattern paper (mainly Japanese patterns)... including my 12 new vintage apron patterns. I cannot wait to get started on them. They are sooo cute. I will definitely take pictures as I make them.
I spent most of the weekend sewing, crocheting and cleaning the house (eewwwww, not my favorite thing to do). I also cooked. I ended up having a lot of veggies that I did not know what to do with... mushrooms, tomatoes, green onions and zucchini. So I cut them up and sauteed them, thinking I would make stuffed tomatoes... I get the first part completed only to find out my big tomatoes were, errr, well, aged... so I made this goulosh stuff. Was not too bad, but I really wanted my stuffed tomatoes.
Em had a large tea party in the living room Saturday morning. It was soooo cute. Even though I think this is only about 1/32nd of all of her stuffed animals. We have had to actually box some up in rubbermaid containers and rotate them out.... really! Grandpa buys her new ones all the time. This weekend I lucked out though. He just bought her another horse. The ones made in Germany....
I thought it was too funny.... her elephant (and the thing with the white nose/pink body is a HUGE pink Unicorn) with his snout in a plate : ) Em is just too adorable.
