First, Thank you to all who wrote in such sweet comments last week! It always helps things along. ;) It was a busy week and frustrating at times, but it turned out well. My hubby was a sweetheart and offered to take me out Saturday morning to do some shopping...of course I took him up on it and we had a nice time. :)
Yesterday I took out my little hexie collection and played with that a bit. Several months ago I was inspired by this adorable pillow made by the talented Amy, from Nana Company. That's when I began stitching away, little by little, to make a pillow for Ava.
These aren't stitched together, just playing to see how it might look....I have only began stitching together one hexie flower. This pillow idea might take a bit, but that's just how I expect it, so I'm not worried. I just mainly want to enjoy the process, so I really only take it out when I truly feel like it.
Here are some other fabrics I'd like to add. I also need more greens.
While I played with hexies, I also made cinnamon rolls........yum-o!
I have used this recipe from Heather Hales (she's so good at cooking and baking for her family!) a few times now and I really like it. The thing I like about it is how fast it is! My mom has a yummy recipe too, but it takes alot longer, so I would rarely make them.
I did okay on the dough this time, not quite as fluffy as my last batch, but we had no problem gobbling them up! This time I added a lot more cinnamon, sugar and butter than the recipe calls for and I did like that. :)
I love mine with the frosting!
This recipe seriously only takes an hour, so even though I don't have it perfected, I don't mind making them more often. That way, little by little, hopefully I'll get better at it.
Now, little by little, I'm going to start working on my orders that accumulated last week from my time off from the shop!
Oh and P. S. ....
I do have some READY TO SHIP fabrics listed in the shop in case you're interested. I don't have fabric as a regular item in the shop right now, but I do have a few things hanging around. If you really want fabric....I'll do occasional Custom Listings. Let me know.
Here's a couple little photos I took of Ava this morning as she ate her toast.
And here she is watching the neighbor's dog out the window. She loves animals!
Enjoy the week!
