(1) friendly doormats
(3) wet snow for snowballs
The weather here in the District has been cold cold, but we haven't had any snow yet - they keep promising "maybe" though. When I went out to start my car it took a few seconds longer to turn over, I hope I won't have problems because of the frigid temperatures!
While the electrician was here yesterday he isolated the problems and took care of all the faulty wiring, and I'm back up and running. There's also an old breaker box that was in the basement when I bought the house that's being used as a junction; he thinks maybe there had been a fire at some point and the wires were re-wrapped or something. He suggested that I get those wires replaced when I get the chance... no immediate danger but it's something that wouldn't hurt to get done - after 38 years!
These boards work up quickly and are easy to make, and the fabric trim around the edges can make them really cute! There are a few more pieces of trim to stitch, I can do that today or tomorrow and they'll be ready to roll out.
There was lots of good stuff stuffed in those bags! A great mish-mash of scrappy goodness - I'm loving it!
Some good-sized trimmings that I can use for scrap yardage - hmmm, I need scrap yardage to make more of those "South of Baltimore" blocks, I really need to finish up that project. Maybe this year for sure?
I love digging through scraps, and if I could just stay focused and finish up my short-term projects, I could play with my scraps with a clear conscience! For sure I'll make some more of those tiny little colorful houses that I made with Rosa's scraps, they don't need much fabric.
Well that's it for now, have a great Thursday - sew forth and sew on!
