It has been a busy weekend, but I did get in some time with needle and thread In spite of all the busyness.
We spent Friday with the two older grands - fun times! I had hopes of getting out to play some laser tag, but with snow falling, I just wasn't sure that it was worth the risk of getting out on the road. We made the best of being housebound. ;-)
I spent Saturday in the sewing room working on the Christmas ornament gifts. It took almost all day but I got them done! The two on the left will go to my sister and the two on the right will go to DD. These are made using the fabric I bought at Hancock's of Paducah when we were there last weekend. I have plenty left, and I'm thinking of using the fabrics on the left to make a Christmassy table runner or wall quilt ... some day. I've got to finish up my storm at sea and my two hexi projects first.
Sunday after church, I was able to do some hand quilting on the aforementioned storm at sea. I got all the unstitching and re-stitching done on another hoop-full. When I sit back down with it next time, I'll have to move the hoop. I'm making progress - slowly ... but slow can be underrated.
I'm going to link up to Kathy's quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.
Several of you mentioned using your iPads for just about everything now ... which leads me to a question: do you all use your iPad for blogging? I've been using mine to compose my blog posts, but I have yet to figure out how to insert links or pictures using a URL. Any help or advice?
I'm not sure how much I'll be around Blogville the next couple of weeks ... crazy busy ... so I'm going to take a break from blogging. I hope to continue to visit, but I can't make any promises. In the meantime, have a blessed Christmas season.
