E-gads, it was only 9F degrees (for all you Aussies out there sweating at the beach) this morning when I woke up. Even with the heat on at 70F in the house, it's still chilly! Brrrr!! Good thing I took some time between the holidays to get out my machine and sew up something that I've wanted for a few years.
Do you remember this stuff?
Well, it didn't take long to cut it up and sew it back together again in simple squares. (A bit simplistic for me, I'll admit....BUT fast, and that was the point!!) I knew that although we had 40's for most of December, it would change fast and we'd be shivering in the living room at night with our high ceilings and that darn ceiling fan supposedly blowing the warm air downward.....(ya, right????) If you ask me, wind just makes things colder!!!
Can't get much easier than that, huh? I wanted something that looked like northern Wisconsin (although I really live in southern Wisconsin) for years. I know, don't ask! My hubby thinks I'm nuts too! It ended up at 62x72 inches so it's a nice size for snuggling under! Good thing I had a reservation for quilting that I hadn't used. My quilt shop got this done in a record ........2 DAYS.......can you believe???? I love that store!!!! And doesn't it look nice hanging over my couch?
And it's toasty too!!! Please stay warm, my friends above the equator! Winter doesn't last forever!!! And for you Aussies who are sweating on the beach.......smile! You have no idea how cold 9F degrees feels! (I know...I have a nephew who works in Perth!)
