Extra crispy bacon. Who doesn't love bacon? Even the vegans I know say they miss bacon.
Springy cloth napkins in napkin rings. Pretty.
A big plate full of waffles (there were two).
Breakfast was great & we were so full we skipped lunch!
Tonight I started a stitching project from a book I bought a while ago. I love this book. It's so easy (I mean, really very easy), has great pictures, instructions & do-able projects. Tonight I decided to make a little felt stuffed owl for Molly. I'll walk you through the steps I took tonight (until I started going cross-eyed and decided to blog for a while).
I cut an owl out of felt. There are no patterns, but simple shapes like this are easy to freehand. It took me about 3 tries to get an owl I liked.
The owl on the left is the one I am making. So cute right??
Machine sewed on the breast piece (also from a freehand pattern....turned out pretty good!).
Now I am busy stitching away to embellish the owl. I am about half way there but the lighting in my house is pitiful (as you can tell from my pictures) so I thought I should break.
Brian's cousin is coming to stay with us for three weeks. She arrives Friday & I thought I should have some little projects around for us to work on...just in case this rain doesn't let up! I hate teaching someone something I haven't done before, so this is my dry run. I think it's going to turn out great!
Hope everyone had a Happy Fathers Day. We sure did!
