Wall Hanging

100_2623

This is my latest project.  What do you’ll think?  I have never been very good at hand sewing, however I have decided to hand sew each of my girls a wall hanging.  Notice I did not say quilt(much too big a project).  I thought though that a wall hanging would be do-able for me.  I gave this one to Jess and plan to start one for Julie soon, then Grace.  It really was a lot of fun.  I guess because it was kinda different for me.  I always enjoy trying new projects.  Well the big news around here is the temperature.  COLD!!!  The actual temperature was around zero this morning with a wind chill of somewhere around 15 or 20 below.  VERY COLD!!!  Dave and Jess and Daniel came up this weekend.  Of course, they are now accustomed to more southernly temperatures so they were very cold.   But then we were very cold too.  I really pray it doesn’t stay this cold all winter but I do recall one January about 5 years ago,  the temperatures stayed like this for the entire month.  Have I mentioned I don’t really like cold.  Oh well, maybe this will kill out all the squash bugs that attacked our garden last year.  We will (hopefully)  find out Tuesday if Jess is having a boy or a girl.  Sometimes those babies are shy and don’t want to let anyone know.  Anyway she is starting to show her pregnancy and getting some flutterings which is very exciting.  It was very good to have them up this weekend, they had not been here since Halloween and thats way too long.  It’s almost time for our Sunday Night Study so I guess I better get busy.  I’m taking leftovers from yesterday’s feast.  God Bless.
