Good Afternoon Everyone!!! Hope you all had a great weekend..we are getting rainy blustery weather..and if you seen our yard you would see why..(will share tomorrow)..looks like a cyclone came through our yard and dumped every single leaf in our yard..It was nasty outside yesterday so I stayed in and sewed..got 2 more projects to go..Michelle yours is next on the list for those crow curtains..will be working on them as soon as I am done here..;) yesterday I made seam binding..I love this little gadget that I got at Joanns last year for my christmas..since my machine won't do the decorative stitches..I had to figure out how to cover the raw edges..so made seem binding..This is so much fun to do if you know how to fold the fabric so its on the bias etc..my friend showed me how to fold it on a piece of paper and I pull it out and refer to it..
you wind the fabric strips (this is going to be 1/2 binding) so I cut the fabric in 1-1/2- 2 inches thick.you then wind it on the bobbin and put it through that metal portion..(you let the machine heat up as it will Iron this binding as it feeds it out the other end...it will give you a green light when its heated up..that little box on the left side is the heat/iron..
and here is it all iron and ready to go..
the underside to show you that it is creased..:) you can use any fabric to make seam binding..you will see it on the towels I finished below.;)if any one wants to learn how to make the binding let me know and I will post photos to show you how to fold your fabric..just let me know.:)
I made bread and cinnamon rolls on sunday to take to our friends house for dessert..we had so much fun..playing phase 10..if you have never played it you should..it is addicting and lots of fun..Next morning I woke up to a nasty cold..so tomorrow I am going to the doctors..my nose is so plugged..anyway back to my post..I love making this bread.it is so easy..and there is no waiting for it to rise, punch down, let rise, and punch down..you don't have to do any of this..and you get bread in 1 hour..but its all in the safs yeast and the liquid lecithin..so if you enjoy making bread or cinnamon rolls or a savery bread..this recipe is for you..it helps if you have a kitchen aid mixer too..cause you have to mix this for 5 minutes..if you are doing it by hand it takes 10 minutes..you can find the supplys on pantry secrets web site or on amazon too..
so this was sundays cinnamon rolls..it makes 2 big rolls..I used store bought cream cheese frosting..I took 2 to our next door neighbors and 4 to our friends house..
last night I made shrimp bisque soup and I made one loaf of bread and 6 cinnamon rolls and they were done exactly when the soup was done..it worked out perfectly ..tomorrow I am making pizza..
This batch turned out so well.. I think I got the water ratio right this time as it turned out perfectly..;)
here are the cinnamon rolls I made last night..I added the cinnamon chips to these ..you can add them to the bread and make cinnamon bread and have "french toast"..;) the possibilities are endless.;)
here they are frosted up..:)they don't look so pretty..but they are so yummy.;)
here is what I made yesterday..this was a special order from a gal that's sister purchased one and she loved it..so she had to have one..here is the seam binding that I made..
I just finished up these two towels this morning..I used some really cute cross stitch designs from my blogging friend and OFG friend named Denise of pioneer loft. I just got 2 more of her wonderful designs yesterday..christmas ones..)
These are my fall/thanksgiving towels..I will be posting these on etsy when I am done here..you can see better photos on my etsy if you are interested...Well that is it for me..going to go and sew and get some stuff done..I hope you all have a wonderful week..:) looks like we are going to get rained on for halloween..so will see how many trick or treaters we get..and we are getting snow in our mountains too..my little sister in Utah said they got snow in their mountains too..this is early..;) hows the weather in your neck of the woods? take care.:)
