Our forecast for today was for 1-2” of snow, and we got at least 5”. Later tonight, we’re expecting an ice storm on top of the snow. Yippee.. On the bright side, it’s perfect sewing weather!! I sewed down binding all night Friday night for FNWF, and I finished one quilt yesterday. This is a service project for our guild – the quilts are being given to the Sheriff’s Department, to have in their cars for children who may be traumatized and need some comfort.
A few minutes ago, I finished another quilt. This one will be going to Project Hope. A young mother who is suffering from post-partum depression will eventually receive this. The patchwork blocks were made by Pat of 501 Blocks, and then I made them into a quilt.
Last week I finished two gifts that I won’t be able to share until after Christmas. And sometime this week, I’ll have to finish another gift.
The tiny little snowflakes are beads, and I love the way she stitched the ‘border’.
Here is the postcard that I sent to Annette.
We had a houseguest for a few days before Thanksgiving, so I spent a couple of weekends cleaning. I am really trying to reduce the amount of ‘stuff’ in this house. I had a box for the SPCA, the Habitat Restore, the Used Book Store, and a few crafty things for co-workers. I still have a long way to go. Sometimes the stuff just gets too overwhelming, I also prepped plenty of hand sewing before our guest arrived, so I could be sociable while he was here, and not be stuck down in the cave. My plan worked quite well.
I’m sure I’m forgetting things, but I’ll try not to wait so long for the next post.
Kindness matters…and Santa’s watching…..Sunny
