WOW this winter has been a tough one in Northern IL -- so we are inside most of the time, snow on Saturday it was decent on Sunday (I mean high 20's LOL) more snow yesterday and this morning below zero AGAIN! Oh my -- like I said lots of inside time -- this past weekend I was so busy I barely notices the weather!
It was time to get the guest room clean -- it was like a staging area when I re-did the sewing room so here it is -- clean as a whistle! So happy the entire 2nd floor is all cleaned and shiney! First floor is good too, but the basement is BULGING with box and boxes of garage sale items -- as soon as spring arrives we are having a nice big garage sale!
I did get a little sewing done -- my new obsession is the kleenex box covers -- I want to use up some of my holiday fabric and I found one in a snowflake print and remembered how easy there are -- so I started sewing some up. Here are a couple of the valentines day ones. They look great on your desk at work -- just a little cheery thing to put at your desk to make work a little more bearable!
And as I was cleaning I found a drawer full on my moms t-shirts -- well it has been 7 years this year since she passed away -- so I thought it was time to wash them and donate to goodwill but this one -- it is just her! She always had a smile on her face -- even when she was ill. So I made this into a pillow and it sits in my sewing room chair.
