First, thanks to everyone who entered the Toss Up Pattern giveaway! I had quite a few good laughs over the strange gifts you all had received/given. Seriously, if you have a few moments sometime, go read through the comments.
The winner was #62, Alisa, who said
“The weirdest thing was an orange colored glass chicken shaped dish someone gave us for our wedding. It has a top and a bottom part and looked like it was straight out of the 70s.”
I’m just wondering what you would put in a glass chicken dish.
Alisa, Kirsten will send you your pattern! Have fun with it!
In other news, I finally got some progress made on Christmas. I’ve been working on a quilt for my parents for… months now, and I finally have it basted together. The irony is that I need a walking foot to quilt it, and my walking foot is wrapped beneath the Christmas tree. Do I open that present early, use it, and re-wrap it? I might do that…
I also have three little dresses to make by Christmas. I’m nearly done with the first, but I need to go get black fabric for a sash around the middle. I had the older girls’ dresses cut out before I had the baby last month, and now I find myself needing to cut into the red fabric again :) It is a good thing I way over-estimated and have extra fabric. I probably have enough to make something matching for me too! Since I have soooo much time these days. (ha ha!)
Next, I want to mention that my Monster Baby Toy has made it to the finals in the Handmade with Love competition over at Pink Chalk Studio. You can vote for your favorite tutorials here. I’d love it if you voted for me!
And finally… I found a pure white hair on my head this weekend. I was nearly blinded by it, so I pulled it out and am keeping it in my jewelry box. How come some people keep that first haircut snipping, but don’t keep their first gray/white hair? I finally feel like an adult!
