That doesn't have the ring of Monday Miscellany, does it? Ah, well, that's how my life is going these days.
I ordered myself a sewing subscription box, which includes a pattern fabric, thread, and notions to complete the project, along with the fabric and pattern for a little "extra" project. One such project was a little travel bag, which was described by GMarie a little while back.
The fabric I got was cute, but hardly adult, so after I made up the bag, I sent it to my oldest granddaughter (she'll be 3 in March; can you believe it?). I told my daughter in law that it was for her crayons and valuables. My girl looks delighted, doesn't she?
November's extra project was pot holder/trivets. Since I only use my tile trivets and Pampered Chef oven mitts that go about to my elbows, I sent these to my daughter in law. She seemed pretty pleased with them.
Beyond the sewing box, I had made myself a dress in October. There was just a bit of leftover fabric, so I made a quasi-matching dress for Maddie, and sent it to her. My daughter in law said that she was so excited that she had to wear her dress to school the next day. And she brought it for Thanksgiving weekend, so I got to see her in it. It's a bit large, but she'll grow.
Finally, this weekend I'm meeting some old friends halfway between here and Connecticut for an afternoon; I decided that I should bring them presents, so I made them each 8 Christmas napkins. Oh, I'm not clever enough to have thought these up; I copied them from a set that GMarie gifted me several years back, but they're so pretty that I had to make them.
Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you all have fun weekends planned!
