But unfortunately it was not to be. I ended up working to catch up some last minute reports since the pay period ends tonight. I figured I could just fudge a little and sew to my heart's content tomorrow while it rains. I have a 9-patch quilt that I can work on. I can pleat and smock the blue day gown. I can cross-stitch. I have a sock to finish. I may just have fun all day.
Lydia came through with flying colors tonight though and just emailed me some pictures. She made only a pair of pants tonight, I think, but these are some things she's made this week. So cute. I love the moose shirt. She says Jacob is expecting his dad to catch a moose when he goes hunting.
With Barbara's wrist putting a damper on her sewing, I have to brag on the quilt she's just finished. I saw it in person, and the pictures don't do justice to the colors and how intricate it is. Click on them to see it close up. She says it's not as hard as it looks, but she should be very proud of this. The pattern is "Blooming Nine-Patch."
I hope I can one day finish something!
Gaby has taught herself to knit from TV, and here's proof. It's going to be a scarf.
As she explains it: I know how to make crochet, to me was easier than knitting until the last week of December past year. I have never do anything knitted, but I bought a knitting needles anyway; one day I was watching my favorite TV show about crocheting and knitting and the girl explained how to start to knit so beautiful and easy that I start to knit the same day.
I have some talented friends. Now tomorrow I hope to hear from the relatives - and me.
