Today the sun is trying to peak out, but the wind is swift enough to dry my larger items outside on the line. The rest are on drying racks in front of the wood stove.
And if you are wondering if our family motto is really true or not ("Eat it up, Wear it out, Make it do, Or go without.") check out those pink flannel sheets on the line. Those used to be mine as a kid. Mom gave them to me several years ago, and now my own kids are using them. The elastic is giving out on the bottom sheet, but they sure come in handy in this old farm house.
As for the "Project Runway" part of the post, think "projects."
I have a list of more crafting projects that need finished or completed, and I'll post them as I complete them.
Over the school winter break, I finished a set of cup coasters, a few ornaments and dishcloths. I also crocheted one of the girls a hat.
I didn't really have a pattern for these. I just kind of "winged" it. Either way, I managed to finish them and use leftover yarn in my "stash."
I also ironed transfers onto 5 shirts, 2 lunch bags, one bible/book cover, on tote bag (actually two, but will add that in a minute), and one bandanna.
I guess I deleted the photo already, but my advice is to never play a guessing game with five kids while ironing on transfers. One transfer was ironed on upside down. Ha ha ha ha!
Today, the kids are back in school. I overheard them this morning, while waiting for the school bus.
".....I know....they'll ask what are your resolutions..."
"....and what did you do over break..."
"...I know....and they go one at a time.....what did you get for Christmas...."
This was all said in high pitched sarcastic mimicking voices. What used to be fun to share in elementary, is not so fun for middle and high school anymore. I got a chuckle listening to them imitate teachers. After they left, I had one more to put on a school bus. Only her conversation was:
"....I know Tig.....I don't want to go either...."
She was talking to her cat, giving him lots of love, and dreading the return of school.
