Yesterday, I spoke these words to my mother-in-law: ‘So, I’m kinda actually getting into the spirit of winter. And getting excited about all these projects that I can do’. Wherein she interrupted me saying, ‘hold on, wait just a minute…’ I was in the midst of cutting some fabric and thought I had made a disastrous mistake but she continued with, ‘let me run go get my tape recorder!’.
To which we laughed and I thought it might be good if I do record those words here. Part of it may be that the temperature has just been balmy. But I hear the low tonight is 28 degrees so we’ll see how I do. So far I’ve been handling 60 degree nights just fine. Actually had Wes crack the window two nights ago around three as it was so warm in our bedroom. And I reveled in the moment.
But I am enjoying feeling crafty and planning all these cool hats to knit, decorations to make and such. And I do believe it’ll make winter that much more enjoyable. Remind me to read this post in February and maybe inspire me with a few more ideas. Until then, I’ll be so pleased when I finish my dumb pillow shams and a few more projects that I’ve been dutifully putting off until I finish these dumb pillow shams. You seriously should have seen me and my MIL as we struggled to find the correct dimensions to create a square ruched pillow. I won’t even tell you what we did before going back to square one because I’m pretty sure you’d just be mind boggled by us. We were.
But now we feel accomplished.
And had a great time. Perhaps I’ll show you the beautiful finished product sometime.
And now I’m off to do some more crafting.
Hope you’re having just as much fun.
