There is odd weather everywhere & this is the first year for us to not have to shovel the snow first!
Alberta had snow early & Ontario is in gridlock right now with their snow, us it is a snow day for the kids & a 'sew day' for me! lol
With Christmas 43 days away, I really need to focus on sewing the flannel PJ's for the family.
I've been working on the FREE 12 Weeks of Christmas with Farmhouse Threads and Olde Green Cupboard, week nine was just released & FREE Little Red Hen's Wooly Mysteries which I have one more block to make this afternoon. The last instruction will be putting it together to finish it.
Here's what's been done so far...
I've been enjoying the 12 weeks primitive ornaments by Farmhouse Threads, which are worked onto an old green wool army blanket giving it a warm vintage feel.
Block Six - not finished embroidery or embellishments
Block Seven- not finished
Block Eight- Not finished
Block Five in the Wooly Mystery, with just one more yummy block to make.
I do the quilt-as-you-go with each block & will be creative on how to put it together to finish the little hanging quilt for the kitchen.
Using Fusion Paint On Furniture
Bill was even impressed with the furniture when it all dried.
I've been auditioning this toile print by Waverley fabrics & I think it is going to look great!
It has now been added to 'My Honey Do List' for Bill when he gets home. My hands are sore & weak with arthritis, I'm getting bloodwork done for rheumatoid tests, my father's hands were filled with deformation from that disease. A crafters nightmare for sure, I use my hands daily creating something beautiful or functional.
Bill also painted the foyer table pillar & the glass was stored away giving more room for next month as all the kids will be here this Christmas!
Christmas Hobo Bag
A snowman with snowflake buttons & an angel is on the other side.
Late Fall Construction
Jocelyne & I went to Boisetown Christmas open house on November 3rd during a horrific wind & rain storm and this is what she first noticed coming up the lane later that afternoon...
The next day several of the construction men came & sorted the lumber pieces out & by Monday, everything was back on track.
More was happening that day of OMG too...
So whilst all this was going on with me...
Bill & all three sons were in Texas at the NASCAR race, here's a pic of them in the PJ pants I made them, they're wearing them at the race track motorhome.
This trip was for Nick's 30th birthday celebration with lots of adventures in Texas to go with it!
I'm glad it will be a few years before they attempt a trip like this one again. I had quite the week on my own with a double shot of 'S' in my stress! lol
On a happy closing note, look what came in on UPS today!
Thank you for stopping in for a visit & sorry life had gotten in the way of getting this blog brought to life. I hope late fall is being good to you & you are taking your vitamin D with the loss of sunshine & daylight these days.
Wishing you Health & Happiness,
