and sew on............

January was rather sendentary for me....cold and bitter weather kept me in...along with self induced food poisoning....and I know better....ah well. It was a productive even if slightly lazy month as I sewed to my hearts content making gifts for friends and family that we will be visiting in February...our California road trip and also for our trip to Mexico in March to see Pam and Harry. ( I also made a few things for the Punta Chivato school auction) We will also take a side trip to La Paz for 5 days....never been there.

So, here's a few shots of my creations plus a few more on my flickr site for you to check out....who knows- you might even get one too!

Baby it's cold outside

Here's Russell's finished painting for Grace......

Meanwhile I just checked the little weather station we have....28F degrees.....snow still on the deck.....some black ice still on the roads.
