Taking a Breather

This week Dan's parents are here.  Dad is working on the attic, and mom is keeping me company. 

 Since I have my craft sale during the week of Thanksgiving, I don't do any baking.  This week gives me a little breather from the intensity of crafting.  It also gives me a good excuse to bake.  Today Miles and I made apple pie and pumpkin pie for dessert tonight. 



They are so yummy!

Even though I am not focusing on my crafts this week.  I do have a goal of making penny rugs out of felt I bought at Joanne's.  I've never done this before, but I found a blog that shows you how to make them.  http://pennyrugsandmore.blogspot.com  I am going to try it.  I used her idea of using freezer paper to draw on before cutting out my circles. 


 Miles helped take the paper off and count them for me.


 Then I bagged each project to keep them organized.


I am slowly sewing them together, using the blanket stitch.  





I have one pack stacked.




This is how I am going to sew this group together.




My Mother-in-law is very good at knitting and crocheting.  She was working on snowflakes while I worked on the penny piles for my penny rugs.




It has been a nice break.  The attic is starting to come together.  Yippee!!
