Hopefully, some of the craziness in our lives is behind us for a little while. I think all the shopping is done - what a zoo!!! We only have one more trip to go - a day trip to Kentucky to have celebrate with my husband's family. My poor husband was sick with the flu earlier this week, but he seems to be all better now thankfully! Our daughter and her family were here for a little while, but now they have headed home to Savannah for the holidays, and no more company is expected until our son and his family arrive the day after Christmas for a couple of days.
So during this little lull in the holiday "storm," I plan to concentrate on getting caught up on Easy Street!
Clue #1 is DONE, and this is where I am on Clue #2.
About half of the flying geese are done.
Part #3 and #4 are cut out but nothing sewn yet ....
I got my 3-1/2 strip die yesterday, so I went to work on cutting out my 3-1/2" squares today in the lime greens - YUM!!!!
My friend Melissa from the blog, Doodle-head Stitches, got a new Sizzix cutter recently, so she came over this afternoon to play and learn some tips & tricks... not that I had very many to share being a fairly new owner myself. But we sure did have fun anyway! We played with this die, learning how to turn the strips and cut the squares from them on the cutter. Notice how I marked a right-angle line on the die for laying the strips so I could get perfect squares?
It was nothing short of amazing to see how quickly these squares were done!
I know Clue #5 comes out tomorrow morning! I'm going to have to decide whether I want to sew on these back clues, or go ahead and start on the new clue. Right now, I am leaning toward getting these older clues caught up!
It was a cold and very blustery day in Nashville today! But not cold enough for snow,
so I don't expect a white Christmas in these parts. I've seen some pictures
of gorgeous winter wonderlands from some of my blogger friends.....
Just so you know.....
I'm jealous! =^..^=
Hugs & Blessings!
