I have been enjoying vacation WAY more than I should be. LOL I drink a huge cup of coffee in the morning and ease into the day. Maybe I'm out of my jammies by 9 am, maybe I'm not. But, since the sewing machine doesn't care how I'm dressed, it's all good.
I feel like a crazy squirrel collecting nuts. I go from one project to the next, sometimes working on two at the same time. Stitch this, sew that, glue those, paint that. I had to be very careful to not get them mixed up. LOL
Here are a few of my latest creations.
This little box has been painted for a while. It was time to give it a life. Had the fabric in my stash, chose the stitching. The pattern is part of an ornament in the Christmas Edition of JCS 2017.
Thought the back stitch would be a nice touch. NOPE. Once I got it stitched, it was too tight on the box top. So, new plan. Let's make it into an ornament. Added some beads on the stitching, ruched some sheer ribbon, added a hanger. Not bad for a second choice.
Across the room at the knitting and stitching couch, LOL, I'm working on this:
I'm on the second skein. The salesperson said that this particular yarn would coordinate even though I chose five different colorways. So far, so good.
I finished all the small pieces for the baby quilt. Now, putting together the big blocks. The fabric is perfect together if I may say so myself. LOL LOL LOL
Hubby took Friday off to hang out with me. Seriously cut into my project time. We went to an estate sale (his favorite hobby) but found nothing for me. That was okay. I had grabbed my knitting as I walked out the door "just in case". Got in an hour of knitting while he dug around in piles of tools. LOL
Saturday was spent attending my nephew's wedding. He married an absolutely lovely lady! They live in Seattle but wanted to get married closer to his family. Her family made the trip from China to attend the wedding. Her father and mother were so cool! Neither speak English well, but their daughter had a friend to translate for them, so we were all able to chat with them and make sure that they were included. Perfect! By the end of the reception, her father had invited all of us to visit in China. Why? Because we are family. How amazing is that!
Exchanging of rings:
Mr. and Mrs.!!
I am off like a herd of turtles. I can hear my projects calling from the other end of the house. LOL Hubby is off on his own today, so I will be plopping my behind at my craft table and go wild!
Have an amazing day. Be kind to one another.
