Knit Unto Others update: 3 scarves, a shawl and a pair of mittens.
Sewing. Hannah was having a rough day on Sunday when her friend across the road had other girls to play with outside. The new girls did not want to play with her so we went to Joann's and got the purple batik fabric in the bottom. However, by the time we got back, everything was find with the girls so, she no longer wanted to learn to sew.
Yesterday afternoon, we had some time after they were all done playing and so made the two travel tissue holders in purple batik from this great pattern. Hannah did most of the sewing on one of the purple ones and I did the other.
The ones in the top row I cut out and made this morning. Nice little Christmas gifts made from scraps of fabric I had floating around the house. Um, what are these??? Reading glasses. Yes, I had to break down yesterday and get a pair with just a wee bit o' magnification. I can read pretty well without them but I find myself squinting to see small print and the computer screen sometimes. I wore them yesterday when I was working and they made a world of difference.
