When I had the girls,
"an elf" left this in Taylor's luggage for Cindy because "she would need it after this weekend!"
What a smart elf!!! YUM!
STOP.....Stop licking your computer screen.
So, when the girls left that Sunday, I was in a crafty mood.
I still had some Christmas presents to make, and you know what, I got a lot more done without a computer! I worked on the above hat.....
Then as I was putting the buttons away that the girls had played with, I was looking at what they did with them, and I got an idea.
They took the green buttons and made little trees around a little Popsicle house they made.
So I stacked up some button trees, and sewed some thread through the holes, and added a bell.
I don't know what I will do with them, but I have a whole year to think about it!
And I think they're cute....maybe necklaces?
Anyway...then I did something I had been wanting to do for quite awhile.
I got out the chalkboard paint, and I painted this cabinet door.
During all of this I've still been moving stuff from the other house. When I came upon this sugar shaker, I decided to make a little snow scene. I put it on the shelf with my other Christmas fun stuff.
I also baked some cookies...
and you know what...they were okay. They looked pretty...but I think I like all chocolate chip better.
When I went to spinning, these ladies in our group played Christmas carols.
We all sang for a bit. Fun!
And that my friends brings us up to Christmas Eve! Phew!
Now...for a few things I've been up to lately! Groovy Girl Yarn had an after Christmas sale and I bought some Weekend yarn....to go with the weekend yarn I already had. I heart it.
Look....I'm making a new Lucy bag! Love the vibrant colors.
(See Groovy Girl Yarn and Attic 24 - Lucy in my side bar)
And in all of the packing and unpacking I've been doing, I'm finding things I forgot I had! Such as these beautiful tablecloths! I collect vintage linens.
And this weekend it reached 60 degrees! Every hive was buzzin!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!
And I haven't updated you on my ripple blanket lately so here ya go! This is made mostly from yarn called Vintage and Ultra Alpalca. (all bought at Groovy Girl Yarn) I wish you could feel how soft this blanket is.
Tonight.....Downton Abbey...crochet....tea (or wine...or hot chocolate - depends on my mood!)
And lastly....creepy I know...but I got my eyes dilated Thursday...today is Sunday ....
and they still are dilated!
I've called the Doctor....they said to call them back if it's still like this on Monday.
"What the "H"?"
