I found this adorable musical note paper at Michael’s and knew right away that I wanted to make some Christmas ornaments out of it.
I looked for a template to use and found this tiny box template at Craftsy in the free downloads.
I didn’t print the template out on my musical note paper, instead I edit it to plain white and just print out a copy I could use as a stencil.
Fall just seems to lend itself to soups and stews, and one of my favorite meats to use in stew is lamb. So when I was asked to create a lamb recipe by the American Lamb Board I made this rich and creamy lamb stew, inspired by Indian flavors.
Whenever I wanted to sew something bigger than a hat or a ball, there’s that additional cumbersome work that needs to be done BEFORE any cutting and actual sewing can happen: tracing the large pattern from the template onto the fabric.
