Blessed! Off the Wall Friday
Did you have a nice holiday? I did. Not only was Santa good to me - Very Good - but I had plenty of quiet time to sleep and create. In that order. Lately, due to hormones I'm sure, I haven't been getting a full 8 (does anybody anymore?) - so it was nice to catch up on a few zzzzzzz's.
So what's new? Well Fall II is basted and quilting has commenced. I misplaced my quilting gloves so I had to grab my old gardening ones. They do work just as well albeit a bit heavier. Fall II is a bit bigger than the first one so it seems that not only will this take more time, but its just that much harder to move around for quilt. Still I'm enjoying it - especially listening to a good Susan Elizabeth Phillip's novel.
Ohhhhh guess what my husband got me for Christmas??? A bolt - yes a BOLT - of Kona Pfd. anddddd a box of dyes. He said, "That should keep you busy for a while" Yes - sirey! Gotta love a man who after 20 years has learned what I really want for Christmas without even asking. No diamonds, chocolates, fancy-smacy clothes. No! Give me white fabric just a-waitin' to be dyed. Now if I could get my studio over 75 degrees so that I could do a little Red Solo Cup Dyeing that would be great! Paul said he would loan me his electric blanket that he uses in his woodshop if I promise not to dye it a bunch of funky colors!
Since next week is New Year's, this week I'm going to reassess my To-Do list and what I want to add to it for 2014.
So what have you been up to creatively?
