I love this time of year! It’s time for fun craft projects for me and my family. This year I may have bitten off more than I can chew, but I am enjoying it!
I am currently in the middle of several projects and have plans to do a couple more if I can convince my husband to go the fabric store with me. He’s not a fan, believe me. Let me put it this way, when we were putting locations on our GPS he used a skull and cross bones icon to identify it on the map. Har-dee-har.
Anyway, this winter I’ve managed to piece together a quilt for my youngest daughter’s big girl bed and I am currently painstakingly hand-stitching the quilting on it. Tried using my machine, but there was too much fabric to maneuver under the walking foot. may have to invest in a long arm sewing machine if I keep up making quilts!
It’s fun and I hope to make a quilt for each of my children in the next few years. Also, I have been knitting a sweater for my blondie. I stalled over Christmas time when my soaping kept me busy but now I need to finish it off. I only have the collar and cuffs to do, but since I’ve been designing it on the fly, I’m a bit nervous as to how it’s going to turn out.
Also, my awesome husband got me fleece pajamas as a gift for Christmas and they are sooooo warm and cozy! Perfect for the below zero temps up here in NY. Anyway, my hubby would like a pair, but couldn’t find any at the store so of course I offered to make a pair for him. Unfortunately, convincing him to go to the fabric store with me is like pulling teeth (see above paragraph).
So, what are you doing for projects this winter? Feel free to share in the comments! Also, I plan on offering a coupon code for Valentine’s Day at the etsy soap store. Please visit my facebook page and “like” to get the code later this month!
