This morning I woke up inside what appeared to be a snowglobe. While gorgeous, the road crews had not been out yet, and the roads out here in the middle of no where were not in the best shape. They are now, thanks to the dilligence of the plow and salt drivers. However, I did not feel comfortable venturing out, even for church.
I really did not want to miss church, after such an awesome message last week, so I started my morning in prayer and scripture. Studied a passage in Romans about loving your neighbor as yourself, that if you focus on that, no other laws will be broken. So much truth in those words.
The snowy weather led to inside work. I am not complaining because I had plenty to catch up on. I fired the sewing machine up and got busy. Last week I saw a gathering apron at a really neat store, and I wrote down the dimensions s I could replicate it myself. I pulled up Pinterist this morning and found several idea that led me to coming up with my own version. Since I was cutting fabric, I decided to really cut fabric, and I cut out a total of 4 aprons. The skirts of the aprons are done, waiting for me to bring home shoe laces tomorrow to finish them and then add the ties. I am really excited about being able to finish them and I plan to upload photos as soon as I get them done!
I have been talking for awhile about making feed sack tote bags. The special feed that I have had to start feeding 2 of my horses with metabolic issues is pricey, and a couple years ago, a local 4-H club made these tote bags as a fundraiser. They were quite a hit! So with any luck I will be able to off set the price of that feed with my trash to treasure project. Time will tell for sure. I was so excited today, I got 2 of them cut and started sewing them together, but realized I had made my handles too thin, way too thin. I will pick up some nylon webbing to construct the handles out of on my way home tomorrow or Tuesday.
It was nice to spend the day catching up on things that I have been wanting to do for several weeks. To-do lists are never done here, but it was very nice today to take some time and work on a few things that I decided were important. Check back soon for pics!
