Snow days are nice! I read Martha Stewart this morning – I’ve been getting all kinds of great magazines at the library for free. They even let you check out the current month’s issue. I’ve spent most of the day upstairs in my sewing room. It was in shambles from the Christmas frenzy of sewing. I also really hadn’t completed unpacked and put away everything from when I moved in. So I’ve finally cleaned out all the shelves, made fabric liners for them, put away all my fabric and swept up all the cobwebs. I’d promised myself that I wouldn’t start sewing anything else until I got the mess cleaned up. And so finally, to reward myself for finishing that job, I had fun sewing these:
They’re burp cloths for Ben and Lisa’s Baby Toby. I made a matching blanket with those two fabrics and sent it up to them in December but didn’t have time to make these then. So I’m looking forward to giving them to Baby Toby in person in February when we go up to visit! Toby’s big siblings LOVE bugs so I was really happy that I had these flannels to put together.
And, please go here, read the article, and then tell your Senator or Congressman that Thomas Friedman has lots of great ideas, that teachers really shouldn’t pay federal income tax, that math teachers salaries really should be doubled, and that Laura should be allowed to be a stay-at-home wife so she can sew all the time and have an Etsy shop. Thank you for your support.
