This has turned out to be a very busy December for us, plus the children have not been feeling well. After a week of concerts and performing, in addition to school, they're pretty much done.
As far as sewing, I'm taking a bit of a break before tackling the eight dance costumes that need to be done. I did get a few pot holders done for my mother in-law. This is the style that slips over a long pot handle. The ones I made about 10 years ago or more have had a long and useful life and need to be replaced. There is nothing magical about these, just bound rectangles of fabric and batting stitched right sides together and turned right side out.
Due to school/work vacations, I will not be posting until the new year. Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope you take a few quiet moments to reflect on the true reason for the season we celebrate this month. See you in 2012!
Parting Shot: Mt. Lafayette. This is me at the summit of Mt. Lafayette on Saturday. Not much of a view this day, unfortunately - I've been up there in beautiful weather with 360 degree views into the surrounding valleys. With temps in the single digits and a moderate wind, we didn't stay long anyway!
