The bottom is made from an IKEA stool.
He followed directions on Pinterest for the rails on top. This is my grand niece using the one her dad made.
While he was busy in his workshop, I was in my sewing studio putting the borders on a baby quilt. I had to stop before I got the fourth one on but it’s pinned and ready to go.
I was watching my eggplant slices baking in the oven. There happened to be one in my fridge that needed to be used and yesterday I noticed a recipe called bacon eggplant on Facebook yesterday that looked good.
The sandwhich called for tomato’s and lettuce. In place of tomato I melted a slice of Havarti on one slice of the bread and added lettuce. Although the roasted eggplant didn’t really remind me of bacon the sandwiches were yummy.
After lunch, I went back to the studio to have a little more creative fun, free motion stitching the background on a little art piece.
There’s more to be done before I move to the foreground. As I looked through some of my photos I decided it needed a few small fir trees here and there. The simplest way for me to do them is to hoop up some water solvable stabilizer and use the free motion zigzag. I will add a few bits here and there directly to the background also.
I’ll add a few mediums and lights before removing and stitching to the piece. When that’s all done, I’ll move to the large birch trees I want to add in the foreground. Once I felt the creativity flowing, I really wanted to keep going; however, my back and shoulders were protesting. It was time to take a break. At least I’ll be anxious to get back to it.
This is where I am for now.
