More appointments with specialists and dentists last week, and not much time for sewing. And I had such grand plans! I should have known not to even hope for any time in the sewing room with outside stuff on four days of the week….
I took Elizabeth to her sewing class on Thursday night and brought Nina with me so I could keep working on Natural Wonders. When we got there, she set up Bernie and I set up Nina…. and noticed that I had left the pedal at home… so much for sewing that night. So I HAD to go shopping.. I mean I wasn’t going to just sit there for two hours doing nothing, was I? Nope….
Off I toodled to Lincraft. Now I haven’t been there for years… and I was so surprised to see this huge store with all sorts of things. They used to be just a fabric shop, but they have all sorts of craft stuff there now. Anyway, I was reasonably good.. hee hee.
First of all I got some Christmas colored yarn to make little bags/baskets:
After that little bit of shopping I went back to see how the girls were going and started crocheting with the Christmas colors. I made these two little baskets, my first finishes for the Early Bird Christmas challenge (taken next to the iron so that you can see how small they are):
I love to make homemade goodies for Christmas and put them in a basket for friends. I thought this was a different way of presenting them… When I learn to crochet a bit better I suppose I could put some more decorations on them, but with some lollies (candy) inside, or homemade cookies wrapped in cellophane… I think they will do 🙂
Last night and today after church I managed to work on the bag a bit and got this far:
I have more well laid plans for this week…. not many outings, so maybe I will get some of my plans done!!! I sure hope so!
