Can you believe it is January already. My Mom used to tell me that the older you get the faster time goes.
I believe it. It was only yesterday I was complaining about the heat.
New Years Day is a day of back to back football around here. I'm not a great lover of watching football, but I love to sit and sew next to Mr. SS as he is consummed with 1st downs, tackles and touchdowns.
(see I know a little about the game. My three sons played youth football from the age of 8. Mr. SS and all three sons played HS football. Mr. SS and one son played college football and I never missed a game when they were playing.)
I mentioned a couple of posts ago that I wanted to make a mug rug for each month this year. So while watching the Rose Parade, I got started on my
January Mug Rug
the rest was hand work. So, I was able to sit with Mr. SS and "watch" football with him
while I made cute little black and white Hexies and hand appliqued them to my rug.
I also had the face to embroider by hand.
I love his little crooked smile.
This is the same snow man I used on Emmy's
snowman Santa bib.
I added a piece of ric rac to the seam and hand sewed little glass beads. Kinda like snow, don't you think?
It will be time to decorate for Valentines Day soon, but I will enjoy this little guy for a little while before I design my February Mug Rug.
I'm off to the grocery store. My Tehachapi kids will be here for a couple of days and tomorrow night we will have all 10 for dinner and a sleep over...can you hear me say "CRAZY FUN"
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
