And we interrupt the sewing......

I spent a wonderful afternoon beading today. Two friends of mine make the most wonderful bead creations and we had lunch at one of their houses, followed by an afternoon of beading. Lunch was delicious, shrimp cocktail, carrot, ginger and bean soup, salad and a selection of cheeses followed by mini cupcakes and home made ice cream. Scrumptious, but I digress..........

Knotty Gloves

I have finished the gloves and although I love them and am sure I will wear them often, I don't think I will make gloves (or try socks) again in a hurry.

Me Made Holiday?

I was just going through my holiday photos when it struck me that, that without even realizing it, part of my holiday was self stitched clothing.

To start, the day before we left for our holiday (Christmas Eve) I did a big Christmas dinner for the friends we were going on holiday with as we were traveling on Christmas Day. Here I am wearing my Cadence sweater and self stitched apron.

2012 is going to be a good year

Oh my goodness, it's 2012 already. Where did 2011 go to?

The year  got off to a good start as we saw the New Year in on the Mayan Riviera. It was the last night of a wonderful week long vacation in Mexico with friends.

I started this blog last year and it did help me to become more focused in my sewing. I did not get to all the things I had on my original list, but did many others.
