This is my favorite chair. I love this chair. It was my mothers and I've loved it ever since I was little. I had it reupholstered a few years ago and it became even more comfortable if possible. Tonight I'll be sitting in it reading my new book!
I while ago I tested a quilt pattern for Em of Em's Scrapbag http://emsscrapbag.blogspot.com/2014/02/ho-down.html. It was such a fun quilt to make. The pattern is perfect for showcasing a lot of fun Halloween prints that I had. It makes me happy just looking at it.
I thought that when I got my walking boot off I'd be up and running. But I think I've seriously underestimated my recovery period. There's always sewing. Wool to play with
New hats to make the baby wear
And there is this new toy to play with! With all the kids needing cars for jobs and school, I found myself without one. So we've been on the lookout for a good used car. Although good gas mileage and in good condition were two important criteria, adorableness was way up there too! Since it's a stick I have to wait a little while longer before I can press down on the clutch. I can't wait!
While standing and cutting fabric is a challenge for right now, I have plenty of ufo's that I've been working on. One of which is a wool sampler I started a long time ago. I love working with wool. I finished up this block and have another in the works.
I also wanted to share my growing stack of scrappy strings I've been working on. I had a bunch of 4.5 inch strings and decided to make some rectangles. What will happen next with them, I'm not sure about. Stay tuned.
