It has been a fun weekend. We went out skiing as a family yesterday. Boy was it cold. We received 3 inches of new snow and it was a pleasure to watch Sage try to get through the powder. Three inches to him are a big deal. At one point the wind was so strong that he had to take a little time out to warm up. I have been plugging through hand quilting my Circle of Nine quilt. It is not as east to FMQ and takes a long time. I really do want to get better at it so plugging away is the only way to do so.
|We made this snowman back in December. He got a little fresh snow on him.|
Today is Sunday and we had a great time sledding this morning. Sage and I had some pretty great giggles. Now we are up to watching a little Sesame Street, working on a few sewing projects, napping and hopefully skiing and eating some tasty Barbeque tonight. We will see what the hubby cooks up!
About those sewing projects I am still trying to bang out a few more string blocks to finish a top. I would also like to draft up an A-Line skirt this week. I am taking the Craftsy class and I would like to at least make up my muslin this week. This year I am trying to make a few new pieces for my wardrobe each month. This month I would like to make a few A Line skirts. I bought a bunch of drafting books for myself for Christmas and need to put them into use! I am really enjoying the classes I am taking on Craftsy. I am also taking FMQ with Leah Day. I have followed her blog for years; however the class is outstanding and I am really learning a few things that I did not pick up before. I need to get my large 3 X 6 quilt quilted up. Starting with Stitch in the Ditch. I have practiced on a few smaller quilts, so now is the time to bite into the big one!!!
