We spent 31 hours without power!! 31 HOURS!! That was like two full days…of doing NO sewing! Yup, poor ME!
We had a major wind storm blow in from Hawaii…trees down, fences blown over, tree limbs and debris all over…even roofs blew off houses! We were fortunate that nothing bad happened but of course EVERYTHING I wanted to do required electricity! No sewing machine, no quilting, no ironing, no applique! (notice… no mention of vacuum, washer, dryer or dishwasher…haha)
Thanks goodness for the Beam n Read…it was great for the evenings, for reading and walking from room to room…washing and brushing your teeth. Yes, it was not just used for my hand sewing! Seriously… I LOVE IT even more now!! And it’s still going strong!
You know all those FINISHED projects that I was going to show you… well they are still in bits and pieces…but thankfully friends, Delores and Glynis had power and have lots of stuff to show you! AND they won’t keep YOU in the dark…
Delores and her daughter, Danielle spent the day crafting…they turned Mason Jars, lace and goop called Snow-Tex into…
…these gorgeous Votive holders!
Yup…they made just a few!! :o)
A few of them will make great gifts for Danielle’s kids’ teachers and the rest will be donated to the Cat Rescue Booth at the Craft Fairs. They got the idea HERE! Check it out for the full ‘HOW TO’ on how it’s done!
Lovely job, ladies! The buyers will be purring like kittens when they see these candle holders!
And now we are off to Glynis’ house…yup, she has POWER PLUS!!
Here is ANOTHER of Glynis’ quilt tops! seriously…DOES THIS WOMAN SLEEP?
Sheesh! And it’s gorgeous to boot! The pattern is from ‘101 Small Quilts’ and is called ‘Twice As Nice’. LOVE IT!! Even though it’s considered ‘small’, it’s still 40 x 40. It’s part of Glynis’ monthly small quilt program from Primitive Gatherings. She says she is now only two quilt tops behind! WHAT? Glynis is behind? Seriously…do you believe that one? Yah, me neither!
So there you have it…all I can say is, it’s a good thing that I have lots of crafty friends…with POWER TO SPARE…or this blog would suck more than usual! ;o))
Have a Super Saturday and Happy Stitching!~P
