It's a cold and snowy evening!
It's been a few days since I last posted. I came down with a nasty headcold with fever and cough and it about whipped my butt for a day or two but I'm feeling better now.
Since today was the last day of our Christmas break I figured I'd better get caught up on a few things before we begin school tomorrow. Though the kids are wishing for their first snow day of the season. It is snowing but no major amount. Just enough to make the roads a bit slippery and enough to excite the kids.
In the kitchen today:
I baked a few loaves of homemade oatmeal bread (recipe is here) as well as a blackberry cobbler.
For dinner some oven baked chicken.
While everything was cooking I took a little time to work on some sewing jobs.
Black valances created from a full size sliding door curtain.
Rainbow leapard curtains made from bed sheets and I need to add inside pockets and pouches to a few coal mine safety vests for a friend.
I managed to get the black curtains done and that was it. Hopefully I'll get started on the other two projects this week and get them finished.
I didn't get any crafting done the few days that I was sick so yesterday I tried to make up some lost time.
I added several more rows to my "neapolitan afghan".
And I began a new Valentine needle punch. Pattern is from Chestnut Junction!
Hope you all are staying warm. Our temperatures are going to dip into the 20's for the first time this season with wind chills in the teens. Not much better tomorrow. Good days to stay indoor all warm and cozy while working on more sewing.
Have a great evening!
