It has been a busy few weeks. I moved - and pulled my back out in the process. The move carried on and my back is healing. It might have been for the best cause that forced me to slow down a bit. I'll reveal my new sewing room in another post.
Before Christmas I made these hand and feet printed tea-towels with my nieces (aged 3 and 4) to give as gifts. We had a blast and they turned out okay.
Rudolph - his red nose is a bit hard to see
and angels, which also look like ghosts
I'd like to start a tradition of making something with them each year, specifically at Christmas time.
My marking pile is 10" tall on the fat side - so I need to get working on it too.
And I tried out my new sewing room with a Dear Jane block last night - now only 23 behind.
I think I've finally (almost) recovered from my cold. I finished one more Dear Jane block:
November was super busy and December has been too - I'm 24 blocks behind for my class! Yikes!
I'll get some sewing done over the break I hope.
I'll be away from my machine for at least a week - I have to pack up the sewing room (aka my parent's dining room) cause my mom wants her dining room back and I'm moving into my new house. Hopefully I can have things set up enough to get back to the sewing next weekend.
Hi Everyone - it seems my time is flying these days - but not at the sewing machine. Work has been crazy busy, I bought a house which just closed, and I've caught a nasty cold.
My friend Lynn won a Liebster award - you can read about hers here. Then, she nominated me - I am thrilled and honoured! Thank you Lynn. I heard about the Liebster awards a while back - maybe in the summer, but didn't pay too much attention to it; I'm paying attention now.
This comes from Lynn's blog, who got it from the reader who nominated her: "The
Liebster award (German for favorite or dearest) is to showcase bloggers with
fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass
it on to five more blogs of note. A way of introducing other bloggers to the
blogs they enjoy." Of course, there is responsibility with such an honour -
The acceptance conditions are
: 1. Thank your award presenter on
your blog and link back to him/her.Done 2. Copy and paste the award to your
blog. Will do as soon as I remember how 3. Present the Liebster Award to 5
blogs that you think deserve to be recognised. See below
4. Let them know by leaving a
comment on their blog. This might have to wait a day or two - see below re the couch 5. Have faith that your followers
will spread the love too!I have faith
3. now I have to think since some of the ones I'd recommend have too many followers, hmm...I'll get back to you on this one.
On to the couch...I've been hit with a nasty bug of some kind. I left work early on Friday cause I ached everywhere, including the bottom of my feet! I haven't felt that awful in quite some time. Last year about this time I missed 7 days of school when I pulled my inter-costal muscles from coughing with the 100 day cough. I'm not eager to repeat that experience. So, I slept on the couch, off and on, from 3:00 Friday afternoon until 8 when I went to bed and most of the day Sat. Today I laid around a lot but didn't sleep as much so hopefully I'm on the mend. Just to be sure, I'm back to the couch for the evening and will contemplate who else to recommend for the Liebster Award.
