Make and Listen




Making:

~ knitting away on Christmas gifts for my nephew and nieces, three pairs of fingerless mitts done and the last pair is one the needles

~ some of these for my little man, although I might love them as much as he does :)

~ orders have been rolling in for tree blocks, I picked up some new fabric yesterday and will be sewing up some bags tomorrow

Listening:

~ not much listening around here, for some reason the music has been off and we have been enjoying the quiet...it has been nice for a change and very peaceful

What are you making and listening to this week?

  3. That charcoal is so yummy! Last week I made a birthday crown. This week, well this week is packing. Crazy amounts of packing! But we are just one laundry load away from being done!

  4. Oh... Those light catchers are great! We must make some of those!
    Your nephew and nieces are lucky kiddos! Those looks so warm and cozy.
    The longer lengths of wooden blocks look great, so much to do with those. Wonderful!
    Quiet is a very peaceful sound. Agreed. Sometimes it is nice just to be in the quiet.
    Thanks for joining in this week!

  13. I always love seeing what you are making. With both parents being so talented I am sure that little Reece has quite the creative force of his own.
