Monday Monday...How Sweet It Is!
This statement was posted on Facebook this weekend and it really resonated with me and so I thought I would share it with you...are you there?...or do you have a challenge saying NO...or, need to be liked? Life is short...make the most of it and use your time well.
Our weekend was a filled with snow! It was beautiful! The neighborhood dug ourselves out. We had too...since several neighbors were invited to a Harvest Gathering Potluck and we had to be able to walk since the roads weren't wide enough for car parking and it was only 4 houses away :)
Enzo was enjoying himself and I got to dust off my snow shoes. The temperature dropped to -5 and yesterday afternoon we hit a high of 25 degrees...practically balmy, lol. I saw a small herd of deer huddled inside a car port in town...yep, even they thought it was a little too cold!
I did some baking this weekend, and this is where Enzo hangs out when I am in the kitchen. He is such a chicken!
With the weather so chilly I spent the entire weekend in my sewing room...well, I did come down for meals and I didn't sleep in there. I dove into a new project and love how it turned out, I have the wool all prepped for stitching. This is a Primitive Gathering pattern. I decided to add the year on the basket, kinda like when the year is added to a stitched sampler. If I were to do this again I probably would just piece the area where the wool pieces are attached. It is going to be cumbersome to stitch those wool pieces while manipulating the enter piece. I started to worry about stretching and fraying of all those half square triangles while stitching the wool...so I covered the entire back with Pellon SF 101 and my problem was solved :)
My brain has been going 100 miles an hour thinking about Christmas, about organization...finishing projects, making gifts....I think I am making myself a little crazy...you did know that there is only...37 days till Christmas...sorry...my panic needed company.
