I've been playing around with needlework/embroidery during this cold spell, too. The Henrietta Whiskers BOM kept me busy during the ice storm, and after initial machine piecing I was able to get warm again under my trusty blanket.
This has me thinking perhaps I need to do more embellishment. Maybe take some ideas floating in my head, piece them, and then do some sort of fun embroidery on them. That way the hands will stay busy which keeps the mind quieter.
I have a bunch of Other things I need to do, though! I have too many UFO's and need to start finishing rather than procrastinating. Or at least it feels like procrastinating, even though I have a goal for these hexies...
But take today: I had wanted to clean/organize my sewing room, all because my brother will be passing through on Sunday to see our house for the first time. Right now, he'd look in there and shake his head that his messy little sister still can't keep "her room" clean. So I wanted to clean, but after 5 minutes in there, I was shivering uncontrollably, and so I grabbed the rest of Sally's scrap bag and headed back to the living room...
I will probably still be sewing these to and from Florida next month. I guess I should look up TSA regulations and find some scissors that won't get me a full body search! It's going to be odd enough explaining the black box Mom and I will have with us....
"Excuse me, ladies, what's in the box?
"Oh, that's my dad. We're spreading him in the gulf."
I'm laughing already thinking about it!!
