Ok, I know it’s not Friday, and I haven’t actually sewn anything today. It just sounded good, let’s move on.
I did finish a fair bit last week, all 3 of my marvel shirts in fact. 2 of them have even been given to their new owners already and everything.
Here are all 3 together in all their glory. We have Thor, Captain America and Black Widow. The fabric is all from Snowy Owl Fabrics, and it is gorgeous in person. Really all these needed was to be hemmed, the Black Widow shirt needed its armbands too. And to have it’s neckline finished.
I think I’ve finally conquered the double needle too, that’s been a major challenge for me from the beginning. It’s hard to see, but if you look closely you can tell the hems are double stitched. I also hemmed the villain top I’m making for myself, but I’m trying not to show it off until it’s finished.
In other news, hubby got me a new toy. I never had much interest in pressure cookers (or even a clue what they were). Initially I had little to no interest in it, but the more research I did the more intriguing it got.
Decided to make a simple recipe to start, and it doesn’t get much simpler than mac and cheese. I thought it was pretty good, I brought it in to work so it kind of lost something when I had to reheat it in the microwave. It was ready in record time though, barely 15 minutes.
Today I went with chicken noodle soup, since the plague (cold) is going around (and around, and around). It’s hit me yet again and soup just sounded tasty. I had some difficulty with the chicken, but it was my own fault. It helps to put the cooker on pressure before you start. Still, in about an hour I had finished soup. That would’ve taken at least 2-3 hours in the crockpot. I think I’m hooked, I’m experimenting with potatoes tomorrow, bought a steamer basket today that I’m hoping will work.
Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving 🦃
