Woo, what a weekend! Shopping and more shopping...
Saturday was supposed to be a sew day for me. I planned on sewing in the afternoon and I wanted to get so much done. Well, I never sewed on Saturday. My DH is going on a trip this week and he wanted to go buy some new clothes and shoes to go on his trip. He told me we would only be gone a few hours...That didn't happen. This man is a shopaholic! He's always loved to shop and he does all of our shopping for us. I don't have to shop unless I want to. We were gone all day Saturday until I told him I wouldn't go any further. My feet hurt and I wasn't going to walk around and look or shop for anything else! I was exhausted! We came home and I didn't even look at my sewing machine!
Sunday afternoon, I was able to do a little bit of my sewing. I got all of my OBW blocks done, now to press and they'll be ready for next Saturday. I haven't counted but I know there are more than 100 blocks! Lots of sewing but it will be worth it!
Yesterday, I worked on some snowmen blocks. I had to do 20 blocks, 10 of 2 different snowmen. My small group(there are 10 of us) is having another exchange. (Our last swap was the cupcake swap.)I've had the snowmen put on fabric for awhile but I had to decide how to decorate or dress them. I got my snowmen dressed. I put their hats and scarves on and did a blanket stitch around them. Now, I'm working on the hand stitching part, putting their eyes, smiles and arms on....these are so cute. I'm still working on this part and will be finished by Wednesday or Thursday night. I did 4 of these while watching TV last night. I enjoy the hand stitching part but it does take time. The exchange is taking place Saturday...We will have 20 different snowmen for our quilt when we exchange. I can't wait to see everyone's snowmen. This quilt will be so cute when it's done! I didn't have time to take pics yesterday but I will take some tonight and I'll take alot Saturday when we have our get together....
I hope everyone got to spend some family time this weekend. We did a little with our kids but both my boy's families had kids running fever so we didn't do much. Nothing too serious with either family but enough to keep the kids quiet and indoors and away from everyone else.
My husband is going to his 40th High School reunion this week up in Seattle, Washington. He is really excited and looking forward to seeing old friends. I could not take off work at this time so I'm staying home and you know what I'll be doing every night???
I know I'll miss him but maybe I can get my sewing room straightened up ,do the dolls that I wanted to and maybe I can get some quilting done too. Time will tell...
