This, That, and The Other

I thought I'd share this little pumpkin tote bag I made in one of the machine mastery classes I recently took for my Bernina. We were working with the embroidery module on this particular day. Such great classes! How did I not know that machine feet with a D (example, 3D) in the name are meant only for the dual feed function???? So many great little tips!

I simply have to share this with you! I have found a new makeup line that I ADORE! I had given up on foundation - haven't worn it in years. It's impossible to find a shade that matches my skin tone, and I couldn't find one that 'felt' right. They were always too much coverage or too little.

I finally found one that is 'just right'! This is by Jones Road, developed by Bobbie Brown. I ordered online after taking their quiz to pick out my shade. My shade is Porcelain. When I opened it I immediately thought it would be too dark, but it's absolutely perfect! I bought several of the products and love them all. Now I plan to order more.

Here's a weird selfie of me in the car (with seat belt and mastectomy pillow!) so you can see how the foundation looks on me. I'm terrible at selfies! But I do love this makeup!

What? Needlepoint? YES! You know I've been making Sadie a wool bird Christmas ornament every year. This Christmas we'll have another grand - Baby Noah due in weeks. I decided to make him a needlepoint ornament each year, so this will be his first. A friend taught me to always do the white first, so that's what I'm doing. 

Here's a sneak peak at the Sadie quilt - still making quilting progress. I'm working on it a few hours each week.

This past week I made TWO Apple Dapple Cakes. This is a childhood favorite of mine. My mother made this every Fall. My brother makes many of these each year for Christmas presents. I hadn't made one in years. We are eating and sharing one of these. I froze the other to save for the holidays. SO GOOD! Sinfully delicious! After baking you make a sauce to pour over the top and it soaks in. YUM! Find the recipe HERE.

And that is the randomness that's going on around here. I'm loving the pleasant weather. I've gotten out of the habit of walking since we moved, but hope to start back again soon. Enjoy your week!

  1. I haven't done needlepoint in decades! I always liked it. If you do the white first, you don't pull through stray colored threads from the other details.
