But before we get to some of the progress (or holiday eats) that got made yesterday let's travel back a week or so ago. . .
One of the greatest segments was their "Ode to Brett Favre" in which the two piano playing brothers dressed up in old/new jersey's and sang their tribute song. These two men can play outstanding. It is sooo very soothing and wonderful to listen to. If you like listening to Lori Line or have seen her all three of us would strongly recommend that you check these guys out. We thought their performance was just as good if not better than those of hers we've seen.
On Thanksgiving we decided to finish up a "U.F.O"
Last Christmas, Phyllis and us gals decided to make hearts out of old jewelry. The idea came from a tree out of jewelry in Great-grandma's nursing home hallway. After gathering up our prized pieces we began clipping, reshaping, hunting, and gluing treasures on our hearts.
Our hearts (or Lacey's) looked sort of like the one above. Of course the other gals were a bit more "over-achiever-ish" than her and have hardly any black background showing.
We all had such a wonderful time reminiscing over pieces we glued on our hearts and cannot wait to get them put onto a velvet background to hang and enjoy in our homes.
Now. . .
we of course have been busy little elves getting ready for the holiday season in the shop.
This little guy would make a wonderful gift for that special someone on your list this year. His hat is out of a rag-spun and his fancy scarf is filled with various frilly yarns. It's not only a quick little hanger but works great to use up those smaller scraps that seem to accumulate with any project.
This is our 5-yard Quilt that will be a featured sale item next week for our Anniversary sale.
This quilt really takes longer to cut out than it does to sew it all together. It's a very quick very fun quilt to assemble and gives such a fun pattern when it's finished.
Another project that was a "bucket list" item of Lacey's was a Drunkard Path quilt.
If you are looking for something quick and fun out of wool we'd suggest these candle cuffs by Bareroots. They tie around any size candle and come with an accompanying candle mat to set your spruced up candle on.
Now. . .to some of the "eats progress" made during the snow!
