A pretty quiet week here, and mostly inside as it has been cold and nasty outside (currently 17F and snowing).
I had some sad-looking pears hanging around, so I combined them with some apples and made Rum-Raisin Apple Butter for the freezer.
I won a book!
I entered a giveaway at Sew Mama Sew and won this book. So many cool ideas in here!
I made pattern weights!
This was a fun project for an evening when I wasn’t feeling very well and just wanted to sew without too much hard thinking. My intention starting out was to make 6 or so, but before I knew it I had 14 and had used up most of this leftover flannel.
A tightly-woven quilting cotton would probably have been a better choice for these, but the fabric’s been hanging around in the stash for a while and I wanted to use it.
Pooh was after me for cuddles while I was trying to get photos, so he got put to work as a model.
You can tell he’s not at all sure about this modeling business.
Saturday was a big mail day here–look what came!
And my Xmas present!
So much sewing is going to happen around here!
Have a great week, everybody!
