Step 3 is here and I'm still on step 2!
But, I do feel good about what I have gotten done.
All my flying geese are cut out and grouped together so I can sew them up.
The interesting thing I noted while cutting up my fabrics was that a number of them have this little corner piece cut out. I know that is from the days of crafting and craft fairs. Not sure what I made that I needed such a little piece.
Another golden oldie from the stash. I get such a good feeling from using those now. It reminds me of when I was a little girl about 5 or 6. In the days before air conditioning in the summer time. (yes, I'm that old) I would take my crayons and coloring books out on the front porch and color. One summer my goal was to color all the pages in my coloring books. I did color all the pages in 2 books that summer. And I would get such a feeling of accomplishment as I colored each page, getting closer and closer to my goal. Amazing to get that same feeling now and have it bring back that memory.
And a finish to the week! I gave my co-worker the Advent Calendar I made for her. She will start using it next year. This year she is giving her daughter a Christmas book each night before Christmas. Next year she can add a note to the mittens as to which book they will read on that day. What a great idea!
