Blitz-It Friday # 36 GIFT Making Blitz part 2
Yes!! I am so excited! Here is the evidence that a blitzing mama can sew herself into oblivion, get the gifts wrapped and in the mail. I suppose you want to know what’s in these boxes, eh?
(I had a picture of boxes up, but I took it down)
Well, before I show you what’s in the boxes, my dear husband said, “We need curtains in the craft room as soon as possible; it’s freezing down there..” So, I took it as a direct command from the Lord to get these made first. They are pull shades for the sliding glass doors in that room. The fabric was on clearance, and there wasn’t enough of the yellow (which I really liked) so I added some of the brown suede-looking fabric as a border.
All of the buttons are from a donation from Mrs. Beck. Thank you, Mrs. Beck for the large button collection! (I know there are people out there right now who are insanely covetous of these buttons that you have collected for 65 years)
I think everyone saw the booties that came from this next sweater. If you didn’t, you can look at the tutorial here. Then again, my tutorial writing skills may be a bit “off” since no one was jumping at the bit to try it.
In a sense, I am just getting started, since I still have to do MY family, ugh!!!!!!!
My side of the family is little more boring, in the sense that I only have one brother, and he does not have children. So, I’ll be making some things for my brother and his wife, my Mom and Dad and my grandparents. (No, I do not make Will and the kids stuff! If they want something, they can ask for it at other times of the year!)
My kids prefer, and I quote, “hard, cold cash”.
So, what do I plan to do THIS weekend? I’m hoping to recover from this nonsense and come up for air out of my craft room. I do need to do a little more sewing, but then again, it might be prudent to actually clean the house a little also..?
What are you up to? If you would like to join us, we’d love to have you link up.
If you are new to blitzing, here are some other links on the topic:
Basically, blitzing is forcing ourselves to focus for a set period of time on hands-on tasks.
Also, blitzing with kids is a blast if you are an airchair general.
Glad you could join us! Now you have MANY choices about using the blitz. You are welcome to do/ try any or all of them…. and so many photos to choose from!
And for you guys who like to move slowly, try plodding.
