I finally finished the barrettes for Carol’s Made For China donations. I love these and they were so worth the time it took to sew them all together.
I hope the little Chinese girls who receive them like them. There are 38 barrettes and as you can tell I went heavy on the cute little strawberries. I reinforced the thread with some clear lacquer so they’ll be extra durable.
I had a rough day, so the only cure was some baking and sewing. Here are my WIPs:
Church Supper Spaghetti – a big yummy casserole for my hubby to eat at work this week, he’s working nights and who knows what he’d grab from the vending machine if I didn’t give him something better to eat. I made mine with ground turkey, whole wheat spaghetti and reduced fat cheddar cheese.
Chocolate Cherry Cupcakes (thanks for the recipe Kelli) for Joe’s co-workers, they have been so helpful and friendly to me since our arrival in Korea.
My tote for the Tote Exchange III, the Amy Butler Ultimate Arts & Crafts Tote. This has got to be the most intense and involved Amy Butler pattern I have worked with, any pattern for that matter. I cut out over 30 pieces and after 6 hours I am on step 6 of 15. It better be “ultimate.” I hope my secret (hehe) partner likes it.
