halloween costumes are done, and i am asking myself what happens next. i have a stack of fabrics that have been set aside to be made into smocks for collette. so there is that. i would like to come up some easy handmade gift ideas, but who wouldnt really? i think i will find myself doing a lot more cooking than sewing this year. mmmm...
before i go of into food induced day dreaming i do have two basic sewing questions to pose.
first, how do you sew a corner to make it look like a corner when you turn something right side out? i am seeing that pivoting my needle 90 degrees absolutely does not make a corner like i thought it would. i told you these were basic people. and second, where do you buy good quality solid cottons? i want brand names and store names please. i get so frustrated with the "solids" at joanns. every time i buy some they just turn out to be crap. they feel like crap, they shred like crazy and the color selection isnt all that great anyway. how do i fix this???
is anyone else really happy that amy's mailorder pumpkin spice cake recipe can be the go to dessert for the next two holidays? i know i am. dang it is good.
oh and ps. there are a couple shots of dorothy over here. nothing fantastic, but she did LOVE the shoes as predicted.
