Quick Update

It's well below zero with the windchill.... brrrrr! I have been wearing layers upon layers for days now. Its cold.... the house is set to 59 day and night. We are taking advantage of our hot water bottles and all the afghans that have been made! I was able to get the quilt my Gram made 40 years ago fixed up.... Some of the squares the stitching came undone. So I sew that up. I am now working on a quilt I purchased at a yard sale over the summer. Its hexagon pieces and 11 had to be replaced. Since I'm not much of a sewer... I am just sewing the new material with the seams on the outside... I know.... I know... But at least it will be done and able to be used sooner rather then later. I only have 5 more to do and then fix the big tear in the back. I got it for like $3.... and I know how much work went into making it in the first place and I hate to see all that work go to waste just cause of some material falling apart.

I have been working on my temperature blanket... I have made it into August. Its going to be really big once its done. I'm happy I went with the moss stitch. Other wise it would have been to big. I will use it on the couch or in the car as a backseat blanket. It will be able to keep 3 people warm back there. LOL! I would have been farther along but I got caught up in the messy bun hat craze. So far I have made 2 of them. Since I have long hair and usually wear it up in a pony tail.... These are perfect for me.

My girls are home.... We have been working on the lights, and cookies and general holiday stuff. I can't wait to show off all the homemade gifts. Can't yet cause I have nosey eyes around here... LOL!

So far we have made toll house with white chips and m&m cookies... Today we are suppose to be making pirogi and bath bombs.... I know what a combination... Each girl wants to learn how to do one of these things.... that's why its so varied.

Well, if I don't manage to make it back on here.... Happy Holidays, Festive Yule, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
