At this point you guys must be thinking that all I ever do is sew. Well, to tell you the truth we've had our first vacation week from school so we've just been slacking off all week. It's been fun, but come Monday it's back to the business of learning.
My spoonula and I made this tasty dish last night: an overnight coffee cake that I will never make again due to the 3/4 cup of butter and 1 3/4 cup of sugar the recipe called for. It was good but not healthy!
You may notice the cute pink napkin there. That's my project for today. I have been mulling over making napkins for quite some time and I notice that my girls are constantly wiping their mouths on their shirts even if they have paper napkins so I thought if I made some super cute cloth napkins that they might be more motivated to save their shirts. I took them to Joann's and let Ella pick out the fabric. At first I was horrified by her choice but in the end, I think they make darned cute napkins!
The other thing I'm working on are these totally cute pumpkins I saw Eleanor Burns make on her show Quilt in a Day. It's easy as pie to make, just one seam and some light gathering and stuffing and you're done, basically. I'm going to make at least a dozen of these so that my grandma can sell them at her community's craft fair. I think they can sell them for a couple of dollars a piece and all the proceeds will go to sending children with cancer at the local hospital to a camp to have some fun, a good cause I think. Cute, eh?
