We finally got snow here in Northwestern Pennsylvania over the weekend, and my snowmobile guys couldn't have been happier. And when they are out riding for hours, I have the place to myself. So Saturday I started a pot of soup on the stove and got busy with a needle.
Siobhan emailed and said she was working on a stack of freebie cross stitch charts. That really tempted me because in December I want to drape pine garland on my bannister and load it up with stitched ornaments. This is a freebie pattern I found here.
I finally nailed the crochet slipper pattern that I've been working on. For every slipper I made, I'll bet I ripped out and restarted five other ones. I finally was confident with my work and started making pairs. Larry told me at one point he thought I was obsessed with that project, so I started giving away the pairs. I'm still itching to get the hook out and make more, though.
I am way behind on my sewing, so I ended up trying to finish up a few things. I have always been a sucker for cute quilts, and I credit Debbie Mumm for that. While I've outgrown my Debbie phase, I still like to make a cutie every now and then. With some luck, we'll get more snow before this one gets put away; and the spring quilts come out.
