Saturday Roundup

While this has not been the busiest of weeks, things are still being completed. Like finding out our furniture will arrive on Tuesday afternoon and picking out my lovely Christmas chair!!! Thinking about accent cushions, quilts, throw pillows, and knitted throws has been occupying my mind until today.

Today was all about cutting out patterns, going through my fabric and picking pieces that go together, and of course knitting. It was raining this morning, and then snowing this afternoon with dropping temperatures (not my favourite kind of weather for this time of year as now we will have ice under the snow that will not leave until spring) so it was the perfect time to get working on cutting down the fabric stash.

I managed to cut out the 2 pairs of pajama bottoms and Harvey's BBQ apron as well as a new nightgown for me. Then came the fun part, putting together those leftover fabrics to make a couple of new outfits for me for the Christmas season. I always seem to get more fabric than I need for a pattern, like why get the called for 3 meters when the fabric is on sale and I can get 6 meters. Right????

Tomorrow there will be more cutting and placing the cut out patterns in project bags along with the instructions and thread.

Then the real fun starts. I will of course do Harvey's Christmas gifts first and then continue with the other projects.

I have been continuing with my decluttering and things are coming right along. Still lots to do, but I am seeing a difference every year with less and less "stuff" taking up space in my home.

The clear out of the bits and bobs in the fridge freezer was on hold for the last couple of days, but come Monday I will be back at that challenge as well. Must get it cleared out for all the Christmas leftovers.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.

  1. While I don't sew very often, your comment regarding purchasing more fabric fits well with my notion of buying more yarn than is needed for a project. I don't want to run out of things to do. :)

    Hopefully this week it will warm up enough and for long enough to get rid of that base layer of ice. Here's hoping!
