Added Christmas and Fall Patterns on Etsy

If you have a moment, please drop by my Etsy store - Mom and Pop Craft - to see the latest patterns I have uploaded: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MomandPopCraft. I am now beginning to update Sew Practical with the new Etsy links as I upload the patterns to Etsy. I have not had instant download links for most of my patterns since the site I was using stopped functioning properly. The links will, now, take you to Etsy to purchase the instant downloads. Thank you for your patience as I try to update these links as quickly as I possibly can. Or, feel free to just visit my Etsy store every so often for those downloads.

Have a nice day!

Art Comes in Many Forms

Quilting, fashion, cross stitching, paintings, drawings, small crafts, baked goods. There are so many forms of art. I have included some images of current or upcoming art projects below.

This picture of a cake - along with the recipe - were on the Pillsbury chocolate cake mix box that we bought last week. I didn't see this until after I was home with chocolate icing. But this looks delicious! I just need to research to find out what heavy cream is to mix with that caramel icing. I plan to make this very soon! Art for your taste buds!



We went to a local fall festival over the weekend. And this little cutie made from a sock came home with me. Isn't she adorable? 

Despite making the cake and going to the fall festival, I was able to finish a few rows of the pumpkin on my new cross stitch project over the weekend.  
 

Have a nice day!

Halloween Cross Stitch and Autumn Latch Hook

I bought the cutest Halloween cross stitch kit at Hobby Lobby over the weekend. I'm in the mood to work on this, but I'm not finding the time to work on it. Yikes! Hopefully, in a few days, I'll have time to work on it. It's in the hoop and ready to go.

 
 
I saw this Autumn latch hook kit on the front page of the Herrshners catalog. I want it but if I'm already having trouble finding time to work on projects I already have at my fingertips, do I need another one to try to find time to do? Probably not. But I want that barn, pumpkin, hay stack, fall leaves latch hook kit. It's so cute! I'm thinking about it. I'll let you know if I decide to buy it.
 
 



Have a nice day!

Pumpkin Seed and Continuous Line Loops Quilting Templates

Almost a month ago at the following link, http://ecraftclasses.blogspot.com/2016/08/new-fabric-and-quilt-project.html, I showed you the feather wreath and border templates I was going to use to quilt the Christmas Tree homespun fabric with the coordinating plaid homespun backing. Well, that turned out to be a nightmare! I had to stop after each heart shaped feather and start quilting the next one. And I was missing my new starting points, causing quite a few long stitches instead of the small, neat ones I wanted. Not to mention the time it was taking to start each new section to quilt all 21 or 22 little sections to complete EACH wreath. So, I have printed out a couple of easier templates that will allow for ongoing quilting while I work from each template. The first quilt stitches will have to be removed. Thankfully, I haven't moved beyond the half a wreath I quilted the first day, so that shouldn't take too long.  This was the first time quilting has stressed me. But I feel much better about these new templates.

 
The Pumpkin Seed template reminded me of a poinsettia and I just thought the loops would be easy. I still have to cut them out, but once that's done and the first stitches are removed, I can start quilting again! So be very careful what you print out. That will not only save you time but will also save money. I will still use the feather templates but on an easier project. It's very difficult to see the thread on this fabric.


Have a nice day!

New Cute Pink and Red Fabric and Back to Etsy

Hi! How have you been this last week? I hope you're all doing great!

Well, wouldn't you know? We went to Walmart the other day - it was the first time we had been in a while - and I found this darling fabric to add to my already too abundant stash. So I've prayed about how I can turn this fabric addiction into something positive instead of something that is just lying around in a closet, in a cabinet or on a dresser. So, instead of trying to use all of this for a quilt somewhere down the road, I'm going to make shower curtains with matching tissue box and toilet paper roll covers from some of it. Some of it will become pillowcases. We'll even have classes over at www.ecraftclasses.blogspot.com for those of you who want to learn to sew these things. I will announce those links here when those are available. Below is the newest fabric.



For those who don't sew, I'm going to be selling these items on Etsy at ridiculously low prices. I am actually going to start relisting some older items at greatly reduced prices as well as some of my patterns. I'll be back next week for more news about that. If you'd like, you can start watching for those items to show up this week at the following link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MomandPopCraft. I'll talk to you all next week.

Have a nice day!
