Last week I mentioned that I had received an email from Lilsugar.com asking to feature the Bean and Cheese Burrito Recipe that I recently posted.
Well, they posted the slide show and here is the link!
It's kindof fun to see my picture and post on a different kind of website than I normally participate in.
Anyway, on to my progress for the week, which again, wasn't a lot.
I don't know if it is just because the summer is winding down and my kids are restless for school to start, or what, but things have seemed a little bit crazier at my house lately, which means my usual schedule has gone out the window! That means I usually have a lot of catching up to do with my chores and other duties before I can settle down and do anything creative.
Again, I wish I had more to post, like some finished Christmas Stockings, but alas, I don't.
However, they are starting to at least look like stockings now!
I have one more to sew together before I can move on to figuring out the cuffs and lining.
I wanted to have the lining match the backing fabric, but I didn't purchase enough to line all five stockings, and now, of course, I can't find the fabric since it is REALLY out of print (I think I bought this at least 3 or 4 years ago).
So I am debating on whether I want to go find a matching solid, or line it was some random patterns that I have leftover from when I made the Christmas Tree Skirts. I just don't know if I want it so busy on the inside.
SO I kindof started another project this past week, too. I know, I know, like I really need another project.
While I was at Joann's getting some Kona for 50% off, I saw this cute vintage-y Halloween fabric, and thought it would be perfect as the backing to a Halloween table topper. So I bought a couple cheap FQ's to match and started on a simple Halloween table topper to cover my plain, boring dining table.
I've only gotten around to cutting out the orange so far, but I want to have this done by Labor Day, since that is when I change out my summer decor for my fall decor.
It should go fairly quickly, since it is not going to be large, and I am just doing some simple nine-patches and borders for the top.
