I love when I finish a swap, I know it is meant to be all good fun but for me it is stressful! As time goes on and I am sewing more and more, I have more confidence in my sewing skills. That being said, it still makes me nervous. Will they like what I made, is it too much, not enough, or just right? This one I LOVE and I am hoping my partner likes it too. I really like the little extra tea towel made with the scraps.
Made an extra towel for us
Front of both, trying to hide the crazy quilting on the wonky star! Sorry partner I tried to be clever, but the quilting got away from me!
We made a fire tonight, Ellie and Sam are really into fire. To be honest we felt left out of the storm here in the Southern Adirondacks! We should be snowed in at least once this winter! So we pretended we were snowed in and without power! (after dinner of course) Steve made a fire, some hot cocoa with the gas burner on the stove (we are lucky whenever the power does go off, the gas always works!) and turned off all other electronics. (which of course made Max a little mad at first, but he got into the book and games and all was forgotten) The kids stood in front of it and warmed their bums and then kept holding their hands up to get them "snugglie warm". It was a great little family night!
This is what my family was doing, which was perfect for me to get to some hand stitching I needed to get done. I am still having too much fun with hexagons and I even stitched a few together. This chair is comfy, has a light by it and was next to the fire!
Off to the waterpark for a birthday party and then to the neighbors for a super bowl gathering! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and if you live in the path of the snow storms, please know in Upstate NY where we should be getting a big storm or two, we are jealous! So tuck in with a good book, sit by the fire and enjoy the view.
