It’s the thought that counts?
It’s 2009!!! I can’t believe it! I hope all of you had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve.
Alex and I spent ours in Tallahassee with some good friends, with whom we exchanged the last of our Christmas gifts.
I made coasters and — for the first time ever — a potholder, all backed in black and white toile. I also made an oven mitt, but it didn’t make the final cut because it was a little lopsided and embarrassing. It looked a bit like a quilted alien hand. I know people say it’s the thought that counts, but…..just trust me. It was bad.
However, I was very happy with the coasters and potholder. My next project is to make coasters for me and Alex with his last initial — soon to be OUR last initial — on them. Sort of an early wedding present to ourselves.
