Love is in the Air Quilt
Bears and Pigs are done for now. I will make a few more after I get a couple of the above projects done. Or who knows maybe I will find a new stuffie toy to make by then.
And I have a long list of other projects I would like to work start like a scrap denim rug, felt cup cakes, stuffed monkeys, rag dolls, the list goes on and on.
I might make a few more of these but use some of the fur I have laying around from moster makings. We will see how the weekend goes. The good news is I got ran out of the living room last night by Smallville. It is one of those shows I can't stand to stay in the same room when it is on. Just way too far fetched for me. I made some cutting and sewing progress on my Love is in the Air quilt. The top should be done this weekend.
Mason got his braces off yesterday. His smile is so pretty. Two years and almost $6000 it should be pretty. Ordered his retainers. He is getting blue with a cobra snake on it. How weird is that. I don't think I would want a snake in my mouth. Will end up putting a permanent retainer on the bottom teeth. He told me I could get a photo and I forgot. Maybe he will smile pretty for me this weekend. Wow he sure is growing up fast. We have a visit planned to UT Martin next week. And he takes the ACT next weekend.

School was not canceled until 10 minutes before the kids had to be at the bus stop. So they were both dressed and almost ready to leave. As soon the announcement came that schools were closed Mason did cartwheels down the hall to the computer room. I never saw Kim again she went right back to bed. Two completely different kids.

Buttercup was in hog heaven. She thought all the pigs were for her. Sat in my lap and tried to chew on each one as they got stuffed. Crossing my fingers she doesn't get up onto the table and have pork chops for lunch.

Pigs - 7 ready for stuffing and ears, 1/2 yard of fleece made 7 pigs
Sakura Bag - this doesn't have to be shipped until Feburary 15th, why finish it too early.
Camera strap cover - didn't do anything with this, got too caught up in toy making
Pot holders - still a pipe dream for me
Love is in the Air quilt - All the pieces are cut and sewn except for the white borders. Well I did actually cut all the white borders. Then realized I made them too big. I was too frustrated with myself to go back and cut them the right size.
I did get all the information I need to do drops for The Toy Society. Hope to drop a pig or bear around town to be rescued.
All of the disorganization must be a sign of creativity. At least that is my story and I am sticking to it. You can see some of the hearts on the hind end of the pigs. I think I may do the same thing to the bears. I finished the small bear without a nose and ribbon. Buttercup had it for about 30 seconds and was getting way too excited for David. He was afraid she would pull out her stitches. So I will wait a couple more days and let her have it. In the meantime I ran out of stuffing for the medium and large bear. Plus I didn't have noses for them anyway. Note: must stop and get bear noses on the way home from work today.

This is one of the photo from the instruction of the Sakura bag instructions. Hope mine looks as cute when finished.
Then of course having her two baby teeth pulled doesn't make her overly thrilled to eat anything. She stayed in my arms all evening and then slept on David last night. The two were dozing when I left for work this morning. Can anyone say spoiled rotten?

I am done with donuts for a while. Have a whole plate full now. I didn't want to put you to sleep with another fake donut photo. I cut out the pattern pieces for the stuffed bears last night. It really is just two pattern pieces. Two for front and two for the back. The large size looks really large.

Whoo hooo... That means I am down to the Love is in the Air quilt I started. And I can start working on bears, pigs and pot holders without guilt.

Donuts- 1 failure, 1 done, 10 in half done, but I was working on them yesterday
Jumbo strawberries- just need to add the seeds, I sewed the stems on them yesterday
3 Baby bibs- need to add snaps, I just quilted them yesterday
Pigs- 1 done, finished the one yesterday, at least two more in the near future
Love is in the Air Quilt- top 1/3 completed, yikes haven't really touched in over a week
Bears- pattern bought, need to take inventory of the eyes and noses I already own
Pot holders- not started, this doesn't actually count. This is something I haven't started and didn't purchase anything specific for this.
I guess this is my working list for tonight. I promise not to start another project until 3 of these are completed.
While at the store I also picked up some pink fleece for a few more pigs. And a larger piece of batting for my Love is in the Air quilt. Yikes I didn't sew on that at this weekend.
Note: Felt is a very forgiving medium to work with.
For the next pig he needs more solid stuffing in his snout. Then you could see his nostrils. His eyes were french knots, which Buttercup cannot chew on. If I was making it for any other reason I would put different larger eyes on the pig. And for some reason I didn't get a picture of his curly little tail. I might just have to make a few of these to send to Iowa.

I put the binding on this prequilted panel last night. It is my backup plan in case I don't get something else made for him by Monday. But with David traveling this weekend I should have time to whip up a quilt for the little bundle of joy.

If you like random acts of kindness and pay it forward type projects you will really enjoy this. I think I have a few more monsters left in me that can be created and set free.
