I have to say that there hasn't been a ton of sewing and such going on around here.
Most of that is due to the fact that I have been working on a secret, non-sewing, project for Brad for our anniversary that is coming up at the end of the month. I am really excited about it, but really that is all I can say about it, as, I am notorious for getting too excited about my secrets and accidentally spilling the beans...Oh, and also, because he has been known to check in here every few days so I wouldn't want to spoil it!
Anywho...the lack of here and there sewing throughout the day has had me craving it. But, with catching up on the Olympics at night these past couple of weeks I didn't really want to be sitting at my sewing table. So instead, I've been working on some small hand stitching projects while sitting on the couch...it's been fun...and comfy!
I'm still working on my phone case. It seems to be a never ending project and Brad keeps taunting me and telling me it's not worth it and Violet keeps asking me how my phone project is going...So I continue to push on, because I have to.
They are just so darn cute!
I have been wanting an excuse to make these since February. Celebrating my mother-in-law's 70th birthday seemed like the perfect one.
The whole family worked together to think of 70 reasons we were fortunate to have Gigi in our lives and stuffed those little thoughts into the "cookies".
The most fun part of it all was watching the grandchildren eagerly snatch up a cookie and pull out it's fortune and either read it aloud or have Gigi read it aloud!
It was such a fun was to celebrate 70. Loaded with lots of smiles!
