Happy Weekend

Hello All,

I hope your week has been going well.

We’ve been having a great time the last couple days with Ken’s dad in town.  It was sad to see him go.  Luckily, we’ll see him (and the rest of the family) again at Christmas time.

I have been busy adding animals to my shop finally this week.  You can click on the pictures to get to the shop and see what else has been added.

I surprised myself and made a last minute puppet for the Fall Festival.  I couldn’t believe I conceived and made it all in about 2 hours when the kids were napping!  I’ve never made anything like it.  And it was great to see that what I saw in my head actually happened since I told the ladies in charge that I could do it for them.  Of course, they weren’t expecting me to make it so elaborate, but I couldn’t let them just put eyes on a sock.  Maybe next year they’ll ask me before noon the day of the festival.  Hint hint, Angie.  🙂  It is nice to be able to make something different for a change of pace and to know I will not be mass producing it.

I just saw this video today on the best way to deseed a pomegranate.  Genius!

I know these have been around the web a bit but I just love them.  I need to find a reason to make some mini pinatas!

And lastly, here is a tutorial on how to make a modern “quilt“.  I think this would be easy even for the most beginning sewer.  It’s definitely on my list of things to make.

Happy Weekend everyone!  Anyone got any fun plans?  Now that Halloween has past I need to get my act together for my son’s birthday party.
