And random thoughts…
We had a great time with family this past week. We had a house full and I loved every minute of it. Midnight mass together, up early with the little's for gifts and family breakfast. Christmas afternoon with Mr.Fix-Its family, supper and a dirty Santa gift exchange. When the immediate family grows to over 30 it’s the safest way to exchange a gift and have fun without breaking the bank!

and I need to make Evelyn & Hayden each one now or, something similar.
A few weeks ago I started
de-crap-afying cleaning out the basement more & was focusing in the old sewing room area. I found 4 quilts in various stages & it’s given me the sewing itch again. Baking through Christmas I realized I’m out of hot pads. Mine had worn out & I’ve just been using hand towels. I found a tub full of drapery fabric samples that will be perfect for hot pads. Yes, the basement is that full I’d lost & forgotten about that big tub. Shameful I know. Knitters talk about reaching SABLE “Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy” It’s time to admit I’ve reached that point in fabric and wool…. I’ve decided to dive back in to sewing and use it up…or attempt to at least.
I started looking and mentally listing out projects..
Aprons, Mine are rags and Erika has asked for a few which means Evie will want one like her mama.
Hot pads and pot holders
quilts….we need 3-4 bed spread size to replace those wearing out
Curtains….for the guest room
Crib sheets for little Alix
Table runners and napkins for the dining room
Summer dresses for Evelyn and Alix
I have a list of Mama’s asking for little girls skirts in the Etsy Shop
a few baby and doll quilts
Plenty down there to keep me busy for a long while!
What do you have lined up for winter projects?
