Miscellaneous Day-After Bits...

One of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on Christmas day.  Don't clean it up too quickly.

Well, we're back home from our Christmas trip visiting family - apparently just in time.  It sounds like there's going to be bad weather interfering with travel today...  :(

I've got a couple more days off work - time to start my Christmas sewing!  ;)

Sadly, I'm serious - I'll be madly stitching my way through nine, One-Yard-Wonders for the next few days - hopefully I'll have lots of pictures for you as early as tomorrow!  

In the meantime, here are a few miscellaneous pictures and thoughts for your consideration:

Can you believe that I am lucky enough - at the ripe old age of mumblety-mumble - to still have my Grandmother in my life?  Here she is on Christmas Day, 2012:  

One of my un-achieved goals of 2012 was to get back on my floor loom.  While browsing on Etsy (thanks to my sister for a gift card!) I found a shop selling recycled t-shirt yarn.  Doesn't this have rag rug written all over it?  :)

In addition to sewing, I have a run to the post office scheduled for today - I've got some Holiday Give-Away packages to get in the mail!  ;)

Remember, there's one more give-away left - a set of EIGHT Hot Patterns patterns!  Leave a comment to enter before midnight on Thursday and check back on Friday to see if you won.  Good luck to everyone!  :)

To everyone who is traveling today - be safe!  


  1. You are very blessed to have your grandmother. I loved mine so, and still miss her, after 25 years.

    1. I know I'm blessed - I dread the day I lose her... We talk every night and I'm not sure how I'll fall asleep at night without having heard her voice tell me that she loves me... :(
