Tag Archives: Cross Stitch

On Connie’s Playdesk this week.

13 Jan

This past week has been super fun!!  Classes started back up and the studio was full of students, great projects both started and finished and energy!!  I love a full studio!  On my front I did a lot of baking, cooking and cross stitching.  The Santa cross stitch is coming right along…img_5157

I also made a sourdough starter,

 

Which turned into sourdough bread, waffles and pizza crust.  All were super yummy – the kids now want to make homemade pizza every Friday instead of store bought.  That’s a win in my book!!  I also made a friendship bread starter..

Which turned into bread, cookies and pancakes.  I still have a little left in the fridge to make more pancakes.  Both starters are sitting on the counter being fed and cared for so we can have more fresh bread and goodies!

Some planting happened.  I have had those cute little pots forever and they were looking very forlorn so I decided to plant them – spider plant to the left, some random little plant from the garden in the center and two leaves of a succulent on the right.  I hope they all grow.  The two at the top are an ivy and morning glory (from seed) – one of my sons gave me those cute glass planters and I wanted to use them right away!!

My two youngest (13 and 17) decided to play with chocolate.  They covered oranges and apples – that’s healthy, right?? and then filled ice cube trays with chocolate, raspberries, little marshmallow bits, and more chocolate.  Needless to say, all of these are gone!

Lastly, I tried my hand at crab cakes and they turned out pretty good.  Everyone ate them and liked them.  Can you see the sourdough bread in the left photo?  There were also some cooked made with chocolate chips filled with peanut butter – YUMMY!!

All in all, this week was very productive and looks super busy, but I didn’t feel super busy.  I guess that’s the best way to go about it, do the things you love and life feels great!

 

Studio Happenings!

24 Oct

Last week in the studio was so much fun!

Several worry pets made their appearance!

We had a cross stitch finish and huge progress on another project by a different student!

And a really fun and creative tote bag for a special mom made by this student.  This bag has so many extra details!!  Button eyes, a mouth with lips that is actually a pocket (things like keys can be placed in the mouth and go in the pocket that’s attached), “MOM” labeling, and there is also a cup holder inside for his mom’s coffee or water.  What a thoughtful and uber creative finish!!
