Hello. How’re you today? TGIF! Pretty much the same ol’ here. My teenager had her very first, official, AP European History test Wednesda
ty. She had to log in at 12:30pm and start at 1. The dame felt she got the hardest question than compared to what her other friends got – everyone received a different one; hers was about Napoleon; she said there was only one chapter on him in the book. I think C did well on it though t. She won’t hear her results until July.
What was for lunch? The four of us had baked spuds, with smoky beans, spinach & cheese ravioli, and peas. To top off the OMAD were brownie bars, requested yesterday afternoon by the husband. Hot dog they were chocolatey good! I put in chopped walnuts, wanted by my mister; I was worried they might dry out the brownies since I wasn’t substituting or decreasing any of the chocolate chips, but nope, they were totally fine.
It's so cute, right?!
Remember this design (Trick or Treat Couple) by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery? I finished it months ago, probably by last fall. I had it tucked away so the felines wouldn’t get to it. I pulled it out from my needlework bag and was determined to finish it off.
I had the idea to make it into a pillow, one that I could take out with my other little, Halloween decor every October.
I found Halloween fabric in my stash for the backing. I measured 1″ all around the design and used a rotary cutter to cut off the excess, Aida cloth. I then cut out a piece of the printed fabric in the same size.
Matching right sides together, I sewed all around the four sides with a 5/8″ seam allowance and left open a 3″ gap. Polyester fiber fill was stuffed inside and then I handsewed the gap closed via the invisible ladder stitch.
I wish I had trim but well, with this shelter-in-place still in effect here in the Bay Area, I didn’t want to obsess over the need for it as I know it would further procrastinate the finishing of this piece. I may poke around now for trim I can whipstitch to the outer seams.
I love this FO very much! I so want to make another. I’m determined now to finish the Cottage Country Needleworks design. I’ve made progress on that too.
Thanks for poppin by. TTYS.
