Well, winter has arrived with a vengeance! We have a few feet of snow, -30c (-22F) temperatures and it's basically a mess around here! Highways are closed left, right & center, I keep reading about accidents, etc... There are warnings all over the weather network right now about snow squalls, extreme temperatures, etc... It's a wonderful weekend to stay home! At least for me!
Dallas is headed out bright & early in the morning to Toronto for a few days to spend Valentine's Day with his girlfriend - God willing the highways are clear as it's a horrible weekend to travel! I pray that he makes it safely to & from with no issues! I know I'll be a ball of stress this weekend with him gone, so he'd better be doing some "mommy check-ins" so I don't worry all weekend!
I have zero plans this weekend except for hanging out with hubby & kids, working on some 'selfish sewing' and hopefully making a dent in the many laundry piles sitting in my basement! Which when I'm done this blog post I should probably throw on a load and get the wheels in motion!
On another note, last night I finished up sending out 100 emails for my Instagram swap - what a truck load of work that was! Wow...!! This swap will be the biggest one I *EVER* do I'm sure - next time I'll be cutting my swap in half without a doubt! But I'm glad to have that crossed off of my list and hope it's smooth sailing from here on in! I had a friend send out a handful for me so I don't know who's sending to me - it makes it more fun on the senders end if they can send as a secret I think! I'm excited to start planning what I'm going to make for whom I'm sending to, just need to do a bit of 'stalking' first is all! LOL!!
Then I've been doing some of this and some of that... Here's a mosaic of some of my sewing shots from over the last week...
Lots of pretty little things in there! I need to rewrite my customs for the week with a goal to accomplish for each day as I'd really like (and NEED) to keep my weekends open & free for myself or I may lose my sanity. When customs are slow I have more personal sewing time, but when they're busier, a Monday - Friday schedule definitely helps keep customs moving well and allows me to take on more orders as they come in!
And on that note I'm off to get things moving again... Stay warm & enjoy your weekend!
