Kenny was jealous of the snowmen I made Evy and Pat so I made him this tonight. It will be a pillow in a few days. Evy cleaned all of her clothes and stuff out of our house today. All that's left is the furniture which she will take this weekend. It will be nice to organize everything this winter and clean it the rest of the way. I also have to purge tons of stuff. I am looking forward to that.
I love this snowman picture! I guess I am getting over my snowman aversion!

I am making Evelyn a few things for her new house! She has purchased an adorable place in a great town, but they won't move in for a few weeks so I thought I'd do snowmen for her instead of Christmas this year. This will become a runner.
These towels are hand embroidery. I am working on one more. I have to add trim to the bottoms.
I made the little ornaments at a rug hooking class. It was fun but not a full time hobby for me!

This was a project started many years ago, but I put it away in the attic after I did it in class. I was cleaning the other day and there it was! Only needing a binding (I dislike putting bindings on, but I'm working on that) so tonight after work I put one of the store bought kinds. It feels great to actually finish things. I Even thought about it when I went to bed last night. I went to sleep with a feeling of accomplishment! Maybe it's a new trend! :)

Friday night I got Rob and Ali's quilt finished. I only had to finish putting the binding on and it took like 8 months. I had put most of it on and then my mom was put on life support and then died. Guess I just couldn't bring myself to take it out and bind it. I made the label today and will put it on the quilt tonight! Isn't it cute?
I made this quilt last summer with some good friends and finally got around to quilting and binding it this week. The fabric was a Christmas layer cake (can't remember which tho!) but it doesn't look too Christmasy to me now. But, since it's already very cold here, we will be happy just to have it on the couch!
