I sewed a little today and made a mat for our dog’s food and water dishes.
I used an old white hand towel for the back and a scrap piece of printed fabric for the top.
I pinned them right sides together and machine stitched all the way around, leaving an opening for turning,
I rounded the corners as I machine stitched so I wouldn’t have to fiddle and try to make sharp corners with the thick terry cloth backing,
Then I just machine quilted the lines between the hearts and sewed all around the edge,
Ducky eats in our living room and I think the mat and white bowl look much nicer than the cake pan on the bare floor he was using.
It’s cold today and I’m really enjoying our gas fireplace
Ducky seems to say his supper tastes better on the pretty mat
We had an easy supper- something I’ve been making ever since our children were toddlers.
We call them nachos
You need tortilla chips, refried beans (homemade would be great), jalapeños as desired and grated cheese.
Just spread a single layer of chips on a baking tray- I liked to line the tray with foil and spray with a Pam type spray but those steps just help with serving and cleanup and are not necessary
Then put a spoonful of beans on each chip, top with a jalapeño and grated cheese.
Bake until the cheese is melted and beans are hot- maybe 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes
It’s gonna be cold here for several days and we will be getting either significant ice and snow or just snow tonight and tomorrow.
I hope it’s just snow ❄️
We will be staying cozy and warm at home and I hope y’all are too
