Week 6 – February 6 – 12, 2012
Monday, February 6: I went to a friend’s house to learn how to make this Mei Tai baby carrier. My friend’s friend makes custom baby carriers, Andrea’s business is called Dream Carrier Threads (click here to go to her website).
Tuesday, February 7: I didn’t do anything today except some quilting and taking this photo of Henry in the leopard vest I started before Christmas. I didn’t finish it until sometime in January. This vest was just copied from a fleece vest, no pattern necessary (I don’t follow directions very well). I made it for him and big enough for him to grow into. The boys crawl around the floor and pretend to be certain animals and Henry is always a leopard. I made it reversible.
Wednesday, February 8: We spent most of the day in Stevens Point. Since I don’t have any photos from today this is where I will insert Henry’s photos from this week…
Thursday, February 9: I spent all of today in my PJs. I napped in the morning next to Henry while he watched a movie. Then we made a double batch of our home-made laundry soap.
I quilted by the fire. And took an afternoon nap with Henry.
I also spent a little time in my sewing room working on some projects and finally organized my embroidery threads I bought in December. Last week Jack mounted the thread holder on the wall next to my sewing table.
I was still quilting and sitting around in the evening.
Friday, February 10: This morning we were surprised by the new snow. I have stopped looking at the weather only to be disappointed by the lack of snow in the forecast. So when this snow arrived it was a happy day for all of us!
Henry and I stayed in the house most of the day. I did some quilting and I was able to finish my cloth basket by putting blue handles on it. (Thanks, Lynn for the idea!)
Saturday, February 11: Charlie’s 500 piece puzzle was started a week ago. We all worked on it and the final piece was put in place this morning!
Sunday, February 12: I bought a good amount of this bright paper at Goodwill earlier this month for the purpose of making our own Valentines. We hardly put a dent in the pile of paper. It was much cheaper than buying those silly pre-made ones from the store.
Henry and I made these Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies while we worked on the valentines. Click here to get the recipe.
