Christmas Was Wonderful

We spent lots of time with family over the 24th, 25th & 26th, and have spent the days since then playing with our gifts. Dave working on his model train, Finn playing with everything he can reach, and I've been using my new serger & camera.

I tested out the serger by making quite a few wipes, as we can never have too many ... and having finished that, I made these cute overalls for Finn.

Trying Again

I'm going to try. To write more often. To be more accountable to whoever's out there reading in blog land. So, here goes. Yesterday was our 2nd day with no water this week. The first was a screw up on the part of the city, yesterday was planned, but we got no notice. Put a big delay on our day, as I couldn't shower or bathe Finn until late afternoon. I did get almost all my holiday sewing done. All that is left is the waist band for one skirt, and Finn's sock monkey & mini-quilt. And, if I get enough time, I just might make some cozy velour pants with sock monkey details for Finn, since I bought him a cute brown sweater with red & cream stripes that reminds me of the sock monkey fabrics. I'm going to be taking a break from Orchid Place for the first few months of 2008, so that I can focus on my two final courses at Sheridan College. Once they are finished I will have completed all the course work to be a legitimate interior decorator, and will be working towards making Colour On The Walls a viable business. I'll still be stocking textile toys along with the other creative minds at In Their Hands, and bags and carriers will always be available at babyGO. Last week, I got the fabric gallery together for babyGO, at least for the woven fabrics. I'm happy it's complete, and that I don't have as much fabric as I thought I did! If you're family .... check out Finn's blog ... I'm updating that more often as well!
