But, I do come to show my latest finish -
by Lizzie Kate
unknown scrap of linen
As I had them laying out on the table DH asked how I was going to finish them. I told him flat ornaments. He thought they would be huge and would make good pillows. I don't want 12 Santa pillows though. So, I ask you - how would you finish them? I had wanted them to go on a railing or the tree. Hmm...
Went to Cleveland yesterday and visited the Ewe. Sadly, they didn't have the frames I hoped they would have. Came home with one. :( In an effort to make sure the trip was not a waste of fuel, I also snagged 3 more Christmas related L*K patterns, the newest Silver Creek - Love is Forever, and some linen. Shoot, I didn't even spend $50. So, of course, I rushed home and made an order out to Nordic Needle! And even then I got just a couple of things. What is this world coming to when I stay within my budget on stitchy stash??
The basement cleaning continues. I have managed to wade through all my Christmas ornaments and such. I have two sets of shelves that are 10' long and have two shelves each plus the floor beneath - 60' of storage - ALL CHRISTMAS. Although, one floor section is the tree. So, 50' of Christmas decorations. Let me just say this - I thought I would be getting rid of more and instead I boxed it properly and ended up with more room taken up. Shoot. I have managed to get to the other side of the basement where the pool table lives. There is a 15' section of cleaning to go. Maybe I'll get down there today and finish this madness.
I've been thinking (going to warn you to put the coffee down) and I need an answer. We have extremely cold weather coming in this week - our first Arctic blast of the winter. Serious see your breath when you go outside weather. And it made me wonder - if you fart in this type of cold air - can you see the poof of steam? What if you really had gas and thought, "Oh, I can fart out here in the parking lot" and let one go - would everyone see the poof of steam? Can you imagine your 'I'm better than you' boss making a poof of steam while coming into the work place? I'd never be able to take them seriously again.
Well folks, I think I'll leave you pondering that little nugget of weirdness for the day.
Have a great week and stay warm!
