With this unwelcome winter weather here already I have a very STRONG desire to hibernate. Luckily for me I can "hibernate" in the basement office. It's "sunny" all the time and I can't see a snowflake anywhere. (It has almost everything I need. (Junk) Food in the closet, drinks in the refrigerator, movies and music on the computer, and a bathroom not too far away.) I started my "hibernation" yesterday after waking up to snow. I did go to bed with snow on the ground but I thought, hoped, wished, it might have disappeared in the night. No such luck. I was in a foul mood which helped the hibernating desire. I decided to spend all day in the office. That was pretty much the case. And in so doing I sewed two rag quilts! They both have to be clipped but the long part is done. They don't have a loving home yet but soon will when I donate them.
Today the sun was out so Kade and I ran a few errands so I could stay in the rest of the week in case the sun doesn't show itself again. This afternoon I decided to work on some projects that I'd already started just so I could say they're done. The project I just finished is my Christmas cards! Let me rephrase that so no one gets mad at me. I finished the outside. Mickey still has to take the family picture and I have to write the little blurb that goes inside. I started the cards last month at a crop with my friends. I didn't want to print pictures so that's what I decided to work on. I also knew I would be terribly busy most of November and December. Who isn't? In case anyone is curious here's a picture of the supplies I used to make my cards. I will post the finished product in December. There are two variations of the card if you're wondering.
I just want to thank my friends Becca, Vicky, and Tricia for all their support while getting the card started. And talking/forcing me to use glitter glue. I couldn't have done it without you and the card wouldn't have looked as good either.
Last month I finished the cable jacket I was knitting. Soon I will get a picture of it. I've worn it a few times. It's very cozy and keeps me toasty warm. Now I have a stack of cable squares to sew together. But I have a line of bags waiting to be sewn too. There's too much for me to do. Maybe I'll spend the entire winter in the office.
