Before I get into my sewing saga, let me give a quick update on my non-sewing Pinterest project, the Santa bucket. Per Matthew, I am not allowed to spray paint and even though the weather is nice today, I don't really want to make Matthew spray paint my bucket outside when it is cold, so this project has been pushed back to the spring or summer when I can complete it myself.
I actually make a LOT of the recipes that I find on Pinterest, but never mention them on this blog. Considering I actually enjoy cooking and baking, I find this to be incredibly odd. In the future, I promise to include more posts about the yummy food we make here at the Siuta house! Below are links to two of the recipes that I have tagged on Pinterest that we tried in the slow cooker and absolutely loved!
Easy Crockpot Potato Soup - This is one of the easiest recipes I have ever made and it allowed me to use up some of my Kraft Cream Cheese supply (Thanks Chadwicks!)
Tomato-Basil Parmesan Soup - I misread the recipe for this one and forgot to add the broth at the beginning so we ended up adding just one can of broth at the very end, but it still turned out amazing. Seriously, one of our favorite meals ever!
Ok, on to my sewing
After a night off from sewing and a stop at the fabric store to pick up not only more fabric for my original pillow cover but also a different fabric so I could make a 2nd pillow cover, I started on this "super easy" project. I was able to cut out all of the material pretty easily, got everything pinned and sewed everything up in about an hour. That's pretty good for my first time with everything. Of course after I completed all of my seams, I found out that instead of pinning the right sides together so the wrong sides were facing out, I actually pinned the right side to the wrong side so when I turn the pillow cover inside out it looks funky and not in a good way!
