Found a pattern for a sausage pillowcase on YouTube so I got my new sewing machine set up and made a sample one of these. It was so easy and it came out really well, so I'll have to get some more fabric and make me a few sets. I also started a quilt many years ago so I got out the pieces and started to sew on that.
January 2 and 3
I took down Christmas decorations and tree what a mess that was, tree spills everywhere. I suppose I'll still be finding spills for the next month. My Mom has a fake tree and maybe there's something to be said for it, at lest you don't have to much mess with one. Randy says if he has to have a fake tree he's not having one at all. Oh well I guess I'll have to put up with the mess if I want to have a tree.
Made a list of what I wanted to acomplish this year. It's a short list but I think it's mangable.
-finish quilt top
-finish at lest 12 ornaments
-organize my stash
-make more pillowcases to give as gifts
-start one piece for Valentines, Thanksgiving, Halloween and Easter
I also have a list of stuff I have to buy.
-self healing mat
- iron (mine died)
Well all that should keep me busy for awhile.
Stitch wise I've managed to put 3 strand of backstitch in my festive bells ornament in the last 2 days. LOL not good I know, but I have an excuse. I joined a cross stitch group on facebook and they are a really nice group. So I asked if 123stitch was still up and running they all said yes. Yup you guessed I'll been there all day yesterday didn't get a darn thing done. I must remember to post today and try not to spend all day there.
