I know I sound like a broken record but this was a loooooong hard week! I worked this Saturday morning so it felt extra long. We're still shorthanded so work feels like it's swallowing me up. But. I know this is temporary, this stressful overwhelming time. So this weekend I felt like I needed to really get some stuff done that I've been wanting to and make the most of my time. Saturday Jan and I did our nails and then it snowed!
I found a new show that I've been watching. I hadn't heard of it before - it's Call the Midwife. It's a BBC show (surprise, surprise!) and has sucked me in! So, the library had season 2 and I borrowed it and have been watching and knitting. I finished up the hat that I was working on.
It turned out really well I think. Here it is on a jar so it looks super long. I just love the little texture pattern. The top picture is the decreases on the crown which I think looks kind of fun. And then me, modeling it.....first thing in the morning bahaha.
Sunday being my "real" day off this week I just relaxed in the morning, then decided I neeeeeeeeded to be sewing! I had bought some new Christmas fabric last weekend and I dove right in and made up these holiday zipper bags. The gnome one is not out of the fabric that I bought but I felt it was sort of holidayish? idk but I do know that I love it!
So, I feel like I got a good amount of stitching done and that makes me happy. I'm going to let a couple of friends pick a bag if they'd like one, I have enough of all the fabrics to make more. And, I think I'm going to make a couple more and set them aside. I'm going to start of box of items to maybe do a craft fair next year.
