That quilt was made a year ago, the hexies put together by 60 Deg. diamonds into straight rows so it can be done on machine.
The Weather in Aurora CO
It's cold... bone chilling! We put up a few lights this weekend with numb hands. It's so cold the icicle lights won't unfurl! High today around freezing with snow possible again. The snow from two weeks ago is still visible in more shady areas, ice on sidewalks too.
Right now the sun is shining though and it is misleading... you expect it to be warmer! I don't mind cold weather, I rather be cool than hot, but this wind! We're caught between prairie and mountains.
Our skinny white tree blew out most of it's lights when we set it up... the rest went a couple days later.
|Success! Headed to recycle at Lowes!|
I painstakingly unwound each and EVERY branch, hitting these clips ever 5 branches
Anyway.... it's lit now with white, and two strands of Flamingo lights.
Finally finished the book that should have taken two or three nights. I'd say it was a cute story, but the author needs to work on writing dialogue.
"wow" she said
Now I move on to the next teahouse mystery set in Charleston (love) and the illusive book for my art quilt group.
(I've kind of lost my desire to read it now)
|go to Friday's post to see the precious fabrics better|
Happily sitting in front of the TV sewing Hexie's together by hand. Fun Christmas prints (see details in this post)
I'm sewing them together in diagonal rows of 5, then will sew the whole row to the one before it.
No it's not tedious if you love doing it.
make some felt ornaments
on youtube, there is a three show sequel to Victorian Farm called Victorian Farm Christmas.
I am fascinated! It's as good or better than the first show. These three became quite famous in England, I'm told, and I find them infinitely likeable! I'll tell you other homemakers, I love the fact that I don't have to make my own soap and butter! And mince pies with beef fat sound icky to me!
It's worth a watch!
I'm watching plenty of drivel too... hallmark movies, Survivor, and when it starts I'll be seeing Bachelor. I don't like him, he's too immature... not ripe yet and will waste the time of all those vying for his attention. Tears will be shed. I'll be watching making snarky comments to no one, as my husband will NOT be watching.
change out the everyday dishes to the Christmas dishes and cutlery. I love them!
read that quilt book,
write out Christmas cards including addresses and stamps... and mail them.
Set up lunch with a potential new friend.
Call someone to inspect the fireplace which smells so bad I get sinus migraines.
dishes always dishes
Sew more worry less
figure out what to get my husband for Christmas... omgosh.... no that's impossible
lounge around watching stupid TV eating Bon-Bons and petting the poodle
fine dining of a variety of Christmas cookies!
I'm doing the 31 days of posts hosted by Cheryl Sleboda at http://muppin.com/
She challenged a group of us to write each day. I thought I'd do a little story in episodes each day
Day 3 the story continues...
I know Joy, he thought! Poor Mama, if only she spoke Poodlish as well as I understand human. I'd tell her Joy is sleeping in the big bed after months of being in one's crate at night! Snuggling up to my peeps is a big joy.
Chasing critters is joyful. Eating snow on walks is fun although I tend to barf after... on second thought cross that out. Getting to lick the ice cream bowls is a big joy. Seeing Daddy come in the door at the end of work makes me way happy, and playing got your foot with Mama makes me delirious! I also love being petted, I'll stand for hours pressing into her for that joy.
I feel so much joy when it's time to finally get my alligator chew each night! Whew! (I always worry a little in case they ran out)
Seeing my bestie friends and getting to run hard is really, REALLLLy joyful. Mama should find more friends so she can feel that too.
Knowing I'm safe with both my peeps is very comforting... even if I have to just stay in the car or watch Mama sew, it's all good. I'm a pretty happy boy, and it's easy.
The small things are really the big things when it comes to Joy, Mama.
Mama? I love you lots!
