Who sews Sue's socks? Sue sews Sue's socks.
In December, Chris found a little quilt shop not too far from us that I didn't know about. He gave me their newsletter and gift card at Christmas time and, guess what! They have sewing clubs for the different brands of sewing machines! So, once a month, you come in with your machine and do a project that helps you learn how to better use your machine. How long have I been looking for this??! Chris, you rock my world.

Anyway, I somehow found it difficult with two small children to get to the quilt shop during the day and it closes at 5 most days so weeks passed. Then this past Saturday, I ran out by myself to finally check it out. I signed up for Viking Club (!!!), picked up my class supply list and spent an hour looking through all their fabrics. I picked these two for this month's project:

I came home pretty giddy about the whole thing. I was too excited to wait until Tuesday's class to sew so I pulled the big lady out and made these coasters Saturday night:

(There's your picture, Mom.)

So, that's the sewing news. Other news- Snow! We've got it. We're still getting it. There's maybe five inches or so on the ground so far. Most of it came down last night so we haven't been out in it yet but we're REALLY excited- there's a sled downstairs that Anna doesn't know about... =)


  1. Souns like Missy sews Sue's Socks n' stuff, even! That is so very fun, way to go Chris on a super cool gift.

    Enjoy the snow :)
