A Different Kind of Project

I still haven’t gotten back to re-sewing the binding on the Sock Monkey Quilt, but I’m sure I’ll do that soon.

Instead, yesterday I decided to make treats for the BOO bags that we need to deliver to the neighbors.  I’ve had all the supplies for a couple of days, so it was time to bite the bullet.

How do you think they turned out?

They look like little soldiers all lined up and ready to go!

All wrapped up and ready to be delivered.

The Pink One modeling one for you.

Tonight The Blue One will go delivering them to the neighbors.



About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter

      Mary – you can find it here: http://3kidsandus.com/2011/candy-corn-dipped-marshmallow-pop-treats/

      My suggestion would be when you’re making the orange by mixing the yellow & red candy melts together, start with yellow and gradually add red until you get the orange you want. I started with an even amount of red & yellow, and it was hard to lighten it up.

      When I dipped my marshmallows and put them on foil to harden up a bit, I got a dumb-looking flat bottom. So that’s why I stuck my sticks in the bottom instead of the top – because I didn’t want the flat part to be ‘face up’ if that makes sense. And I did use the giant campfire marshmallows – they’re super cute that way!

I want to hear from you...
