I think I may have been overwhelmed by all of the books on Friday because I just kind of shut down for a bit on Saturday. A four-hour long nap helped. And a total change of pace.
I purchased the kit to make this felt cake-slice box from Sun Felt a couple of years ago at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago and it had been sitting, waiting all this time.
I had completed the white cake slice right away. So I dug it out and stitched it on Saturday. They come ready to stitch with all materials, including a nice box to hold the completed cake slice.
The instructions used a lot of glue but I just can't mange glue neatly so I stitched everything. I think they're fun and silly. I have materials and want to make some felt chocolates.
Since the weather was predicted to be bad, I figured I'd be staying in so I set up to stitch on the Japanese embroidery piece. I actually accomplished a lot (for me and JE). I padded and stitched the entire striped cord loop at the top of the brown paper on Saturday morning. On Sunday I stitched the more central of the two "pinks" (which are orange and white) along with the two leaves just to the right of it. Bit by bit it's getting done. I also made up my white velvet pillow, used to dust and clean the piece as part of the finishing process (or anytime you feel your piece needs a bit of a dusting).
