On a personal note, still no word on the job that I interviewed for last week. They told me that I should hear sometime this week so I didn't really expect to hear on Monday or Tuesday. I personally think I'm a long shot for it but we'll see. I learned a lot from doing the interview and it felt so good to be working with kids again. :)
We were up in Richmond, VA over the weekend for a friend's wedding. We left little Reagan with my parents for the weekend. First time we'd left her overnight, and I think it went well. I know my parents LOVED having her for the weekend... and I did pretty good. There might have been a few tears on Friday night, but after that, no problem! I was definitely ready to pick her up on Sunday.
This is my hustle list:
1. Finish my lemon bars quilt from Fresh Lemons
2. Finish my Tula Pink quilt
7. Reagan's quiet book for Christmas
8. Alphabet softies for Reagan's birthday
11. quilting bee blocks:
13. make 2 other garments for me
14. Reagan's birthday dress and accessories
15. one other project (it's a surprise)
16. Megan Nielsen's Banskia Top for the sewalong
I used coordinating fabric from Creative Thursday's Santa Claus is Coming to Town line. I love that they all coordinate together. I then used some kona red fabric and some burlap type fabric for the cuffs, and some leftover ribbon for the little hooks to hang them. I switched out the toes on all of the stockings. Reagan and my stockings both have bows on them. Had to girly them up a little bit.
There is something so special about things you make for yourself. My mom made all of our Christmas stockings (and made Edmund and Reagan ones this year). It means so much more when it's made with love.
