My life has become so crazy I don't get time to do the things I really want to do. I have one, lonely little finish for my OPAM for February. At least I met the goal. After I made the hat and scarf for my nephew this Christmas DH said he really liked the scarf so I made him one too. Maybe he will wear it tomorrow to blow the snow from the big storm that is supposed to be coming tonight.
It has been a relatively mild winter here, but we had heavy rain with high winds last week. Our power went out again Thursday and it didn't come back on until sometime Saturday. We are so tired of losing power for multiple days. We ended up spending Friday night in a hotel. Watching the news tonight I can't feel too sorry for us. There are households who are still out of power.
I posted last month about the Jo's club
. I haven't done a class, except my one day teddy bear
, since we moved here.
Whenever we have moved before I have taken adult ed crafting classes to meet people. There is no adult ed in this town so I haven't had the opportunity to make new friends. I am really enjoying getting out once a month and meeting new people.
Is anyone else out there doing Jo? I am working on the first 2 projects. The first one takes 128 1 1/2" squares. I don't have the variety of quality reproduction fabrics I would like to use. I tend to gravitate towards dark fabrics so I am particularly in need of lights. Is there anyone who would like to do some swapping? I have a whole bunch cut, but way too many of single colors. I would love to find others in the same spot. We could organize trades. It's much easier to cut a strip and then cut it into squares and then trade some of mine for some of yours. Anyone interested? I'm trying really hard to use what I have and not buy new.
