You may have been asking where is Twisted Fencepost?
No new posts for how long now?
I hope everyone had wonderful holidays!
Aside from my full-time job I have worked myself right through November into December and straight through to what is now January.
As I have told you before I am at my happiest when I am creating.
And for the past few months my creations were made with the help of my sewing machine. Rekindling my passion for sewing has been my past time and part time work.
Here are a few of my creations….
My hands get so cold while sitting at my desk working on the computer. Gloves or mittens are out of the question so I made myself a set of fingerless gloves so I could continue working and still have the warmth of a glove or mitten. They work like a charm. In fact now my hands get a little too warm at times and I have to take them off.
I had piles of gray fleece left over from another project that I just couldn’t bring myself to throw out. So I started making more fingerless gloves for the girls in my office who complain about their cold hands. And they loved them!
Love these ladies!
Here’s another thing that kept me busy through November and December….
I made mermaid blankets throughout the holidays (10 total). There were some smiling little mermaids come Christmas morning.
One of the ladies in the picture above has a grandbaby coming in early spring and she asked if I could make a binky bib for her.
She will have it monogrammed before the baby shower.
That is something that I have not learned yet but am very interested in learning and adding it to my sewing knowledge.
That same lady asked me to make this little shift for her granddaughter.
I’ll admit I was a little nervous about this one. I didn’t have a pattern so she let me borrow another little shift to create a pattern from. I just changed the neckline to make it square as she had requested. It turned out rather well, I think.
There’s more, but I’ll save that for another day. Right now this winter storm passing through our area has got me wanting to sit next to this….
And maybe take a nap!
Until next time….
I’ll try to post more often.
But honestly all I do is work and I really don’t want to bore you with that. Although I thought you might like to hear about my part time work creations from time to time.
