I stole away minutes for sewing. The weekend was great: Housework is wrapped up. Laundry is manageable, and there are groceries in the house. We had lunch with friends on Sunday and scattered in some football and a couple of naps in-between. I was in the middle of the dilemma of ‘not wanting to miss a thing’ – time with the kids, time with Don and time with the “sorta Labrador” dog, Ransom.
So I just puttered around in my sewing room fifteen minutes at a time. After a while, the minutes add up and you have completed blocks. I’m not finished yet, but couldn’t wait to get some blocks seamed together. I’ve about decided to make this queen size so that I can put it in my bedroom. I love the fact that it is red and green—and at least when I look at it, Christmas never enters my mind. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas, but the season lasts such a short time.
It warmed up to 41 degrees this weekend. Nice--- because it cleans up the parking lots and driveways. It always amazes me how warm 41 feels in January and yet how cold it feels in October. We’re gaining almost a minute a day in sunlight. We are up to almost nine hours of daylight a day.
