Starting on lounge pants for Christmas 2012
I managed to catch this particular piece of cotton knit on sale at Fabric.com. It is entirely out of my "comfort-zone". I have discovered that for me I enjoy solid colors & this was like taming a wild horse. But, we came to compromise & I think both of us ended up happy.Me because I have a Christmas present & the fabric because it transformed from a flat piece of fabric into a usable pair of lounge pants
It was a lovely day -probably because I got to work in the sewing room all afternoon.It was cold enough to have to wear a coat outside & it had rained this morning so everything was soaking wet. The fire was down to a few coals this morning, but with some tender loving coaxing she was up & running by the time I had completed the outdoor chores.
DH is not having a good day today - it is still his belly that is hurting him so much. I will be glad to see his doctor this Weds. I do not like to see him suffer like this. I know that he is scared because I am also.
I did get to take my afternoon walk & did not get to see any of "my deer-now that the deer hunters are finished hunting for this year." I did hear one snort in the brush warning the others that I was around. LOL
Back to the building I cleaned out the guinea pigs cage & carried in my grain from the vehicle , which we had picked up on Friday. It took me this long to get my strength up to tackle it.
Last , but not least - I tackled the stove once again. I wobbled back to the stove with a heavy log ( heavy to me) It took me a while to sweet-talk it to where I needed it to go. There were two logs already in the stove bottom & I wanted this one to fall on top of them so I could then heave it in with their help. I thought it was going to whip me there for a few minutes , but I did not give up & ever so slowly I inched it in there. That should hold the fire until bedtime .
We had a light supper , I had eggs & beans & DH had eggs & a venison burger. He only ate half of his & he tried an apple but he could not eat that either. He said it did not taste good, but I tasted it & it was a good apple so it is his taste buds. I hope it is only a bug that he can shake.
Well, I better get moving (not hopping tonight- lol) I still have dishes calling me & some laundry to put away . You know how it is , seems there is always something that needs to be done.
O let me add a link to a neat blog I visited .
AT the top is a quilt block that is so neat & you can really use some small scraps here.
Then on down the page is a project that is a tote -since Moments blog by Liz is having a tote sew along this month -this might help inspire everyone.
Just sharing - you never know when it will help to get somebody else s Mojo working. LOL
