Two Cupcakes and a Candy Cane

What I got done yesterday was the finishing for the Bay of Evil kit. I am happy with how it turned out. It is cute!I I changed it just a little making the page a pocket. I didn't want to be able to see the back of the page (and let people see my messy stitching!) so I put interfacing on the back and sewed it on as a pocket. It is now safely sitting in my curio cabinet. I got a package yesterday but it was just the cable to connect my IPad to my TV so that I can watch stuff on a bigger screen than my IPad. But really, my IPad has such a perfect display that I don't mind watching Downton Abbey on it. I watched the second episode and enjoyed it very much. I got two cupcakes and a candy cane sewn on the Sugar Plum Fairy Stocking. Progress! I still have two candy pieces to put on the bottom. Late last night I got Part Two of the Amy Mitten Vierlande Winders' Keeper Tutorial. Cool. I read through it. The lessons provided online are clear and it will be great putting this together. I can see now what pieces need the backstitching so I will have to go back and do that. The first part of the finishing is putting on the interfacing. A few lessons haven't been posted yet. I can't start anyway since my kit hasn't arrived. It has been mailed so I know it is on it's way. Only 11 days until I leave for Spring Fling. That will be so fun! A


  1. Amy, love your bay of evil kit and your finish. Who is the designer? Looks like one I need to find. Have fun at Spring Fling.
