Of all the great pictures, I think this is it. I loved them so much, I posted them both. Our three year old Aoife at the llama holiday get together.
Tonight's fun..scrappy holiday potholder.
My daughter had given me a bit of this cheater cloth. Thinking it could be a quick potholder, I quilted it. Then the iron broke...Must be time for bed.
A walk through Trader Joe's gave me nostalgia...brussel sprouts cooked on the stem for a lovely holiday family presentation. I love to entertain my big family...Alas, no more big family, no more big house. A healthy change of direction for me. a bit sad, but it is not in me any more.
Never in a million years would I have dreamed that I would lose strength in my arms.
Cutting out fabric is now difficult for me...AND, if I want to cut large strips on my cool and awesome Accuquilt electric, the dies are too heavy...
And so, with mucho dollars worth of fabric owned by me...., I had to buy these on Black Friday...a sad state of affairs.!!
A busy day for me...lovely lunch with a friend, a lovely two hour, $1000 trip to the dentist, a relaxing stroll through Trader Joe's and home to sew and putter. Below: dentist's holiday tree!
I must repeat over and over....I will not and do not have the energy I had when younger..
