Have you ever heard the saying
a bun in the oven.
I was reminded of this saying
because I usually coffee stain my items,
sprinkle cinnamon and then bake them
in the oven.
This is my latest bun
that was in the oven.
Anything that is fabric like these arms,
goes into the oven.
6 minutes at a time.
Flip and repeat until dry.
Don't ever leave them in for too long
or your buns will be burnt. LOL
It easier for me to add on the arms
afterwards rather than have my pattern
with the arms added in.
My stitches will be cleverly hidden once dressed
even the opening in the middle.
then I give my creations personality.
Here this one has a wool nose
with vintage buttons eyes.
For this bunny I wanted to give him a sweater.
Made from blue fleece to keep him warm.
But Janice this is covering his head.
Sorry for the wonky pic.
I folded down the sweater to
make it look like a turtleneck.
Added a rusty pin and bell.
Now to finish this one,
I decided to have him hold a carrot.
One of his favorite foods.
The carrot was made of tan fleece and wool.
Well yesterday it reached 70 degrees.
I will be so disappointed now
when the temps go back down again...
as they will be going down tomorrow.
Rollercoaster temps is what we have in March.
Mom and I had a nice time together.
Yes I am a lucky one.
My dad passed almost 30 yrs ago.
I took her to her eye appt. in the morning.
Her eye pressure was a bit high.
They keep checking her every 6 months,
because she has an degenerative eye disease.
If it gets worse, she will need an eye transplant.
Hoping she does not.
For being 87 she is very active and does not
take one bit of medication.
I call it eating good from being raised
on a farm.
She still grows her own veggie garden and cans
and freezes her bounty.
Am hoping to work on my rug this weekend.
I need to get this finished soon
as I need to start my Halloween items.
Working full time for the bank still,
I only have weekends to work on items.
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
What will you all be doing?
You know Tundra and I will be at our gift shop.
Bun In The Oven Blessings To All!
