Happy 2006, everyone!
We had quite a busy weekend – friends came up to celebrate the count down with us and then my aunt and her family came down from Alberta for a visit. What a wonderful way to ring in the new year – surrounded by friends and family. It was so great to catch up and visit with everyone.
I’m afraid with everyone here, I haven’t picked up a needle in about 3 days. So, no progress to report. I have discovered I don’t have the fabric I thought I did for Woodland Faerie, the SAL that I am doing with Dawn, and was supposed to start last night. This means either 1) a trip to the LNS (oh, darn!!!) or 2) I use a hand dyed for this piece. I have a nice hand dyed that will work, but since this is a project that most of the piece is stitched, it is almost a waste of a lovely texture. The hand dyed in question is a piece by Tirowen Fabrics, called Pixie Glade. It is pretty, and I won’t be framing right to the edge, so you will see the fabric on the outside of the pattern. Thoughts, anyone?
This weekend we also moved the girls rooms around. The girls are now sleeping in the same room, and the spare room is now a play room with which I hope to steal a corner for a craft area. We shall see once I get it all cleaned up. And what a job that is –
I am hoping that once I am through, 2/3 of this room will end up in the garbage and to charity. Fingers crossed!
One last exciting thing that happened this weekend. Kimber went to play at a neighbour’s house and fell on their little skating rink – after 2-1/2 hours at the emergency room (on New Year’s eve!), here is our little hockey player:
