Anyone who has spent some time in the northern areas will understand the term "snot freezing cold." That's what we had.
Fortunately I am pretty good at entertaining myself indoors.
I did walk on the treadmill- I discovered that it is possible to eat cookies while doing this. I'm pretty sure that statement is going to get me kicked out of General Geranium's diet challenge...........
I also had a request from a coworker.
See the photo at left, she got a new bedroom ensemble and decided that pillow shams are not worth the effort. She had seen some of my table runners however, and thought that a runner for her dresser would be a good idea. It is a good idea, but that shiny fabric is a royal pain in the patootie. I had to keep stopping to put on lotion, then wait for it to dry so I didn't snag that fabric on my dry hands.
I tried to get them in color families. I'm trying to decide if I want to just sew them together higgeldy piggledy, or if I want to do strip blocks.
I had about 81 bajillion other pieces that I sorted into bags to bring to my next local guild meeting for the sharing table. Hopefully someone will decide they are a useful addition to her stash. Anyway, then the guilt will be gone from my overstuffed scrap drawer.
Then I made a set of grocery bags for a late Christmas present.
For once it's not that I was that far behind. I had made this couple a nice Christmas bread, but they are from out of town and we weren't home when they stopped by so I finally decided that mailing the bread wasn't as good of an idea as making some bags. I hope they agree!
I had ordered some Lavender from an etsy shop and luckily that came this weekend. I made a few sachets from some of my scraps before I purged them all.
then I made some kitty toys with some catnip I had laying around.
It was sooooooooooooooo funny to see Zeller getting so excited and lively! He is such a laid back sort of guy. You could read that as lazy I suppose
We tried to get him to share with Cassie, but he's bigger and he decided that sharing was not in his vocabulary.
I finally had to confiscate it and put it up on a high shelf. It needs to dry out a bit too!
