It’s still pristine and white outside our windows. It was a busy, snowy Saturday with the whirlwind of holiday activities and project finishing. The girls and their 4H friends presented ragged quilts to Harmoy House residents. I had to come back and share some sparkly fun with you all!!!
DH took the kids sleding after dropping me off at inlaws’. There were 10″ of snow covering their driveway. It was a beautiful winter wonderland. Last time the kids sled in Sunriver was two years ago when we first moved to Oregon. Second time was just as awesome. In fact, our youngest would like to go back tomorrow!
I’ve spent the past several days happily sewing and knitting. Gift making is the best kind of sewing, knitting, and craft making, don’t you think? Surely it would be easier to just buy a gift, right? Where’s the fun in that? (Unfortunately, I still have to do some of that this year…If I start the work with better planning in January, then I won’t have to comes next holiday!) Meanwhile, I have several more to go, but I’m coming up for air, tomorrow is another day. Here’s what I have whipped up in one afternoon. I’m not telling who this is for–you know, just in case.
I have been wanting to make some of these homemade envelop-style bags ever since I saw what my friend has made (this and this) at her blog. Aren’t they fanciful! Here is the original tutorial by Lazy Gal Tonya.
It’s abundantly clear that I didn’t remember all the details when I made mine at my inlaws’ home this afternoon/evening. I did most parts as suggested by the tutorial but added a pocket just like my friend’s–no quilting though. As you see here, I quickly improvised to salvage my mistake (the length was too short.)
Ready to delve into a Sea of your very own Dreams…? I feed my soul with Romance, Poetry and Fairytales, and hope that you will find Inspiration here as well…Go Green!
It’s light and fluffy where we are. All is well until tomorrow!
