I wanted to use the tutorial I was telling you about but I could not find it in my studio and the kids were on the computer so I just winged it. I added a little more and my head is spinning with other ideas for them. If you want to look at the tutorial it is at the Minick & Simpson blog. I used a hot glue gun, because you know I like burning my hands (which I did – have a blister on my embroidering finger as I call it).
Heather from Keep it Thimble is someone I know from when I worked at the quilt store a while back. She had said she bought some lunch boxes from A.C. Moore for a buck each. Well, I had to go see what they had and I bought 4. They are plain and a little bit smaller but I have grand ideas for them, my husband is even giving me ideas –I love how he gets excited about my crafting.
The Fall Open House is at The Rusty Bucket this weekend starting on Friday. I took one more load up there. Last night my husband wouldn’t let me come out of my studio until I finished up some projects and to make sure I stayed in he knows how to press my buttons. He challenged me to make something. He said he wanted me to make a candy corn man. So I made Mr. Candy Korn:
My husband loves the little guy, he said it was exactly as he imagined him. My picture is not very good but look what he looks like in the store:
I made lots of cats. These came from seeing Junkyard Cat by Catnap Primitives. She has some fantastic patterns.
This is just some little cat guy and a little candy corn and a ghost that resembles Patrick Star from Spongebob Squarepants.:
I put ornies in the little treat bags I had shown you before.
And I made 4 more pair of Witch Boots.
I also have realized I am allergic to Sweet Annie. Yes, not good since I use it in my crafts. But I will live, not the only thing I live with that I am allergic to.
Well I am off. I feel much better since I finished some things up and I am ready to start for the next event which will be October 23rd. I was invited by a friend to join in a porch sale and I will provide more information later for you local gals.
Have fun stitching!!!
