Can you believe it our first T in December 2019 already-allot has happened this past year for us but the time has still just flown by so fast
Just a short post this week-mostly photos.
Today (Monday) I started zig zagging around all of the denim pieces for the cushions-they were already beginning to ravel a bit-took longer than I thought it would. I also am zig zagging up the ties-I sew three rows down the folded strip that work really well. My last cushions that I am replacing lasted 20 years of every day use. I still have the rest of those ties to finish up-and then the sewing together begins
I am hooked on watching the St louis Blues hockey games-they are soooo much fun to watch-very fast paced, lots of action,I am really enjoying it.
I always like to make a fleece or flannel couch blanket for my favorite teams. When I made one for the Royals I found a piece half price at fabric.com for very thick fleece-I loved it. So I checked there again and found this fabric half off-which saves me allot of money-this one is thinner but will still be warm and cozy. I will work on this after the cushions are done.
Now that we live in a home where all the floors are finished-I dug out my alpaca slipper socks-they are soooo warm and they have these cute little alpaca rubber pieces on the bottoms. These are the warmest socks ever-I don't like wearing shoes in the house.
I just came down the steps from walking up to our mailbox and spotted the eagle sitting up there in his (or her) favorite spot-so I grabbed the camera-zoomed in from the front door and got these photos.
We also saw two large flocks of pelicans fly by during our 2 pm meal and just now lots of seagulls flying around. and of course the crane is back fishing from the docks.
I love thick flannel sheets for our bed. Last year about this time I found overstock.com carries them for a very good price but they sell out really fast. I almost forgot to check but I managed to get one of the prints I like. Most were sold out already. They came this morning so they are all washed and dried and on the bed. I love them.
I topped it with one of my Mom's quilts that she had paid the Amish women to hand quilt for her.
and this is the set I bought last year-they just came out of the dryer-I love both of these prints and the sheets are very thick and soft
Oh and I almost forgot to share a pretty card I just got in the mail over the weekend-for my October birthday from our Deb I love it thank you Deb
For my drink reference this week-I opened up this bottle of wine to go with our Saturday turkey dinner, and have been enjoying it now for the last few days We don't drink real sweet reds-this one is just right-not too dry not too sweet I bought this last year at Aldi
