The four little ornaments are ready to have the beading added but I have to wait for the mailman to deliver what I need. I have tons of beads but they're all too large for these.
The white area around the outside will be trimmed away before they are finished with felt on the back.
The mailman very nicely left me a package that held a piece of this fabric......which I hope will work well with this fabric I got just a little while ago...
Resident Chef made this recipe and it's definitely a winner. Good for breakfast OR you could serve it with a dollop of ice cream for a dessert. Good either way!

- THIS fellow is quite adorable and could be put to a number of uses.
- If you decorate for Halloween perhaps THESE might be fun. I might be tempted to simply use paper plates (if there wasn't any rain in the forecast!).
- Have a peek through the works of THIS amazing artist!
- THIS would be a really cute addition to your fall/Halloween decor too. I think you could easily applique triangles for eyes and perhaps use some black buttons to form a mouth if you wanted to go in that direction.

Lovely fabrics, they will make a gorgeous cute quilt. Nice choices there.ReplyDelete
Yard monsters will be fun!
I like the recipe. Reading to the next line after the instructions, I thought you were highlighting the Resident Chef as the "quite adorable fellow."
Oh my - now I'm in hysterics! Resident Chef IS a rather adorable fellow and he does have a number of uses....so funny!!!!!!Delete
I have been expecting to see a baby quilt in the works there. I would definitely give you an excellent mark on your choice of fabrics. Resident Chef certainly does come up with some great dishes,ReplyDelete
A new baby simply can't go without a quilt! And an afghan (or two)....and several sweaters....and hats....and toys. I do take my grandmotherly duties quite seriously! And yes, Resident Chef is outstanding in the cooking department.Delete
My goodness you sure have been madly stitching!!! Love the ornaments, and the fabric you chose for the quilt.ReplyDelete
Must try that recipe..well once my oven is fixed that is.
Ornaments don't take a long time to stitch, luckily. While I wait for the 5" fabric squares to arrive I have to start thinking about how I'm going to actually make the quilt. Not being a sane quilter has drawbacks! Hope your oven is soon in working order!Delete
The ornaments will be adorable. Guessing top left is for newest little addition?ReplyDelete
You're right - yes, the top left one is for the baby. She won't need it for another year but I was on a roll and figured I might as well keep going and do hers too.Delete
The adorable fellow scores again. From now on resident chef will be AF. Adorable Fellow. He is pretty cute, after all..ReplyDelete
Well I think he's pretty cute so maybe he should be called Adorable Resident Chef?Delete
A lovely post from beginning to end, including the comments. The Ornies and fabrics are charming and the recipe sounds soo good.ReplyDelete
I can tell you are enjoying yourself with these projects.
Yes, I'm having altogether too much fun with making the ornies - soon going to have to stop and switch gears though.Delete
Your sweet stitcheries are so cute! And that fabric is beautiful. The two prints look like they were made for each other. Can't wait to see that quilt come together.ReplyDelete
Yes, I thought those two fabrics should be together too - and it turns out our daughter-in-love loves them so it's a win/win (or at least I hope it will be once the quilt is done!)Delete
I love those fabrics Mary Anne. What a lovely quilt they will make! Never can understand how we all manage to have large stashes of items but when needed, they are never the right size.... colour.... etc! The ornaments are going to look fabulous! Hugs Christine xxReplyDelete
My stash lacks something when it comes to cottons for quilts so I wasn't surprised when I couldn't come up with anything that would blend. Good thing there's online shops happy to send things!Delete
I like the baby quilt fabrics.....a nice change from pink, blue, or yellow! Those monster eyeballs look like a fun project to do with my Grand-daughters......might so grab some of that foam.......it would be nice if they had fluorescent glow-in-the dark foam.....hmmmmmm.......ReplyDelete
Our kids aren't 'in' to the traditional baby colours although pink in this case is acceptable to a degree. Mixing it with grey and green makes it okay. As for the glow-in-the-dark foam question - could you buy a little tube of glow-in-the-dark paint and paint the foam???Delete
Good idea....I will see what's available when I visit Hobby Lobby. :)Delete
Your Cookie Ornaments are so cute. Always the case...no beads the right size! How is it possible?! Love these fabrics for the baby quilt. YUM! I will definitely try this oatmeal recipe. Today is the first day of Fall/Autumn. Cooler days ahead...ReplyDelete
Beads and buttons - you'd think, with my extensive stash of both items, that I'd have exactly what I need every single time. Such seems to not be the case lately.Delete
