Will I Ever Learn? (& Winners?)

Published by on

I couldn’t just stop with pancakes and bacon. I had to keep going and going and going.

This is the reason, I shouldn’t take up new hobbies!

Just look at this mess!
I've lost my mind

I just don’t do things 1/2 measure. I go overboard … but, just a tad (HA).

We now have:

Felt Cookies

Felt Cupcake

Felt Pizza

Felt Carrots

Felt Strawberry

Felt PB&J
Two slices of bread with PB&J.

Felt Burger and Fixin's
Cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato

There is a whole load of pasta but I forgot to take a picture.

I am done, I think …

Well, I might do some eggs! Note to self –> buy white felt.

Holy Crap … I might need ‘Felt Food Anonymous’!

Oh, you want me to ‘shut up’ about the felt food and tell you the who won the Peanut Shell contest?

SORRY, after sewing all of that food without stopping to eat … I was VERY hungry. I had two choices, go out for supper with Mr. MK or count contest entries and declare the winners.

Steak & Lobster Dinner

Lobster won!

Tomorrow for sure ! I might even have a new contest ready for you!

I meant to post about the pancakes but forgot … now I see you have been hiding some hidden talents! Wow, what a great “supply” for Georgia’s kitchen! I bet she just loves it all.

Oh my gosh! I am in love with the felt food, I need to go buy some felt. Or maybe- can I just buy some noodles from you instead? hehehe

Amanda · February 18, 2008 at 2:30 am

Oh my! That cupcake and the carrots are some of the best I have seen! So, I have to ask – while you were at dinner that evening did you suddenly look at everything differently and wonder about how to make it with felt. Hmmmm, felt lobster, felt baked potato, felt steak…

Jolly · February 18, 2008 at 2:58 am

Most of it looked fantastic but to be able to make that delicious looking lobster our of felt – brilliant!! ;)

I loved the bacon the other night… now the carrots and the strawberry jam I am drooling over.
I also and digging the table you are doing your work on.

I love the felt food. Are those last creations from a pattern or are they from your own imagination? They are so beautiful.

As for counting entries versus eating lobster–that’s no competition. Lobster should win! Hope you had a good time out.

That food is fabulous. I especially love the carrots.

Hey..I have not fallen off the earth – I am here..but if you keep posting pics of that felt food and J keeps sitting here looking at it with me.. I will NEVER have time to get on here.. I am SO busy – haven’t even had time to put up my 30tinymoments – not like me at all!! Jewelry order to fill like crazy, new store, this time for kids jewelry – so getting that stuff made up, doctor’s appts, and dh had to work even Sunday til midday this past weekend – UGH!! and now, I can add felt food to my list :) OH..and I decided to do my blog more towards other recruiter’s wives – believe it or not, most that I meet are horrible towards their husbands regarding their career when they are just doing their job & with the support of their family might do it a bit better.. So, trying to get that started to put up.. Have fun!! Thanks for noticing me missing.. :) *I miss my computer life:(*..but I will be back!

I’m impressed…….it helps that you are so artistic.The carrots and cupcake are my favorites. I think you’re going to need a craft room. Was that steak and lobster from a place in S.P.? Looks goods.

katie bowen · February 18, 2008 at 9:46 am

i’ll take the real lobster and steak thank you!

Cindi Hoppes · February 18, 2008 at 9:52 am

Hello, At least something wonderful is coming from your pile! When I have a pile of stuff, nothing productive comes from it! Cindi

OH my goodness those carrots are amazingly cute! I’m getting inspired lol. Like I need any more hobbies.

I am hoping that you decide to sell any of the non-copyrighted food you’ve created. Although I’m crafty (in a sincerly cross-stich and wool kinda way) I do not sew. My last sewing attempt came in the form of heming some jeans…2 hours later it looked like I’d just hem the jeans for a person with two dramatically different length legs. That or else I was going to start the half pant half capri fashion movement.

Anyways, if you start selling them. I will purchase – I love the cookies!

Deanne S. · February 18, 2008 at 10:13 am

Wow, what great food! So, did you just whip those up out of your own imagination? GREAT job! Maybe you should start selling in on Baby Marketplace!!

MommyKnows · February 18, 2008 at 10:27 am

@ Ashley S & Deanne S – you would be disappointed if you bought these … my stitching is messy. Ashley S this is all just doing neat little stiches so if you can do cross stitch … you can do this.

I made up all of it except:

the strawberry (1/2 circle sewn up – not really copyrightable),
pancakes (four circles sewn together)
the pizza (her pattern is actually pretty neat).

The rest is from looking at pictures and then thinking up my own methods.

If I can do this ANYBODY can!

Amy · February 18, 2008 at 10:28 am

Those felt foods are so amazing! I tend to go waaaaay overboard with things too lol but at least it’s fun to get in to things :)

I love the little felt food. Looks so darn cute. And that pic of the lobster. Did you have to do that to all your readers. My keyboard is wet from my mouth watering!
