Whew! We survived Christmas. I could tell you all about the parties, food, and all the stuff we did over Christmas, but my brain is fried! We ate a lot. We had fun with family. We got on each others nerves. We opened presents. We laughed a lot. Mostly at Frankie.
And now we’re all chilling. The boys have been ice fishing. The girls are just hanging out. The Genius and I are on a crafting binge. I finished a bunch of mug rugs, and got several of them ready to go out in the mail today.
I saw a photo on pinterest and decided I needed to make one or ten. I cut one strip of white fabric and ended up with 10 squares, so that’s how many I made. So scientific of me, huh? I made a stop at Pier 1 before Christmas to find snowman mugs.
You’ll have to excuse my late night photography. This is one of those projects that I’m really pleased with, but they were kind of a pain. They’re six inches square, and binding the silly things took forever! Anyway, I actually executed a plan, and finished them! It seems like it usually takes me about 3 years to finish a Christmas project.
The Genius has taken on a HUGE project for me. She converted my big loom to a new system and this is her test project.
Yes, she is a moron. It’s her 4th weaving project ever, and it’s on a different loom. I’m proud to say she inherited the moron gene from her mother!!! I’ll tell you more about this project soon!
I’ve done very little knitting, as I seem to be back in a quilting mood. The Genius has also done very little knitting, as she’s found out that playing X-box with her little brother is more fun.
And now that it’s 1:30 AM, I should head to bed. I’m sitting here listening to a bear snoring in the next room. I think I’ll wander around the house and find an empty bed somewhere.
