I don't know but it's 12:45 am and this huge snow storm that we're supposed to get that should have started hours ago has yet to arrive. I'm sticking to my guns, we're not getting ANY snow. They predicted 6-12 inches. Whatevah.
I'm heading to bed but I wanted to show what I worked on this evening.
I went to my Mom's to "help" with her Christmas cookies. Yeah I sat on my butt. Shrug. I had a dog hair lodged in the bottom of my foot. I noticed it the minute it happened as I was running down the stairs. I couldn't locate it exactly but it was really bothersome when I walked. I figured it was no different than a wood sliver or metal sliver that it would respond to super glue. So I ask my Mom for super glue. She pulls out 6 new packages of it. I open one and it turns out it's super glue gel. I figured that would give me a few extra seconds to put it on the bottom of my foot before it dried. Yeah...gel...it doesn't dry quickly AT ALL. I even used the blow dryer on it for about 20 minutes. Finally I'm sitting on the couch reading a magazine and Murphy walks over and is sniffing at the glue spot. I said watch, this will be the time that it dries and I'll have Murphy's nose stuck to the bottom of my foot. After about 2 hours the gel was finally dry enough for me to peel off and I'm pretty sure I got it out. Stupid Gel!!!
After that fiasco I made Jen some coasters for our Cookie Exchange. Nothing major but it's a nice little hostess gift. I had her pick out the fabrics the other night when we were at the shop. I guess they're the same fabrics as a wall hanging that she is planning on making. I usually do pointed corners but I got the idea to do rounded. I'm not sure that I really like them that way but once you cut one, there's no going back! They turned out pretty cute though.
When I got home I decided to load some table runners onto the frame. I'm not sure if it was a thread issue or a foot issue. I have a burr that needs to be removed but it was too late to ask Mike to do it. I can always smooth that burr out tomorrow. They are 4 of the Holly Jolly table runner panels. I picked them up for "in case" type gifts. I sewed them all together so I could load them all at once. Oh well, they're ready to go once I get that foot smoothed down.
I decided it was high time to work on my little 12 Dog Days of Christmas Wallhangings. I bought 2 panels and one charm pack. Holly and Murphy will each get one to hang by their food dishes. One done, one to go.
Oh, and I had to cave and buy a BlackBerries for Dummies book so I can learn how to use some of the new to me features on my phone. I guess that makes me officially old...I can no longer keep up with technology without referencing a book.
