Hello, friends! Happy Wednesday! Today is a somber day as we remember all those affected by the tragedies of 9/11. We shall never forget this day that changed the history of our country forever. I have just come from dropping my parents off at the airport after a very wonderful three week visit with them, so today is just that little bit extra hard to have them leave and fly on this day.
After being on vacation mode these past several weeks, I’m hoping to play catch up here on my blog with a project post today for both Therm O Web and my little AudOnes Prims shop. It’s been quite some time since I listed anything in my shop, but that is my plan for the next few days, starting with these silly sweet corn on the cob prims that I made over the summer for the Therm O Web blog. These little cuties feature a combo of my favorite fabrics from Crossroads Denim and Blend Fabrics designer Cori Dantini along with Therm O Web Stitchn’Sew fleece.
If you’d like to give these corny corns a try, I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Therm O Web blog.
Or, you can find this trio of cobs listed now in my Shop! (And hopefully a few other cuties will be joining them, too)
Enjoy the rest of your week, friends! And happy weekend ahead!
It may only be August, but this past week, I have been surrounded by Halloween things. Of course, being the huge Halloween fan that I am, you all know I don’t mind. Today I am excited to kick off a week of fun on the Therm O Web blog with this little Pretty Bird pincushion project made with Jennifer Jangles fabric and sewing pattern.
This Pretty Bird Pin Cushion by Jennifer Jangles is so fun and easy to put together, and looks great in any fabric designs you choose. I used Jennifer’s adorable Not So Spooky Halloween fabrics on my birdie to make a sweet year-round pin cushion for my sewing room that also happens to double as an instant Halloween decoration come October. Love that!
Each one of Jennifer’s sewing patterns comes with a full-color instruction booklet containing step-by-step directions that are super easy for even beginner sewers to follow. I’ve got more directions and photos up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Jennifer has kindly offered to give to one of our lucky readers an assortment (four patterns; Otis and Rhubarb, Lottie Dot Bag, Okey Dokey Owl and Friends Quilt, and the Little Ditties) of her adorable patterns!

It’s turned rainy and gray today, but the last few days have been beautiful here, with temperatures up to 73 degrees. I’ve been pulled outdoors by all this warm sunshine, and it has been so nice to just sit and rock in my deck chairs and soak up this last glorious burst of Indian summer.
I really do need to get my car into the shop for repairs…..but that can wait for awhile. Instead, I’ve been working on some stitchery. A simple embroidered pocket I made as a thank-you for a very sweet bloggy friend of mine. I know I’ve said it before, but it’s sooo true.
Bloggy buddies are the best!
Coffee-stained the fabric and hand drew the pine bough. Added a few buttons and a bow and a little twine handle. A quick and easy sweet nothing.
Today I am off to do a bit more sewing. The girls and I are having one of our crafty play dates. I believe burlap mittens are in order. I made Pumpkin Crunch Cake to take along. Sounds like a good day to me. Hope you all have a wonderful day, too!
