must be getting my winter funky groove back

I was actually in my sewing room more than just 30 min today.
YAY, must be getting my groove back.
Still ignoring house work though ;-)
(I'm 11wks so I guess it's true that once I get into the 2nd trimester I'll feel much better)

anyways, here's a few things I did today
I finished the table runner TOP for the snowmen, it was easy and fun!
the binding will be a blue like the skinny border.

I love this sign :-) and the 5c snowball sign too

whoever drew this, did an amazing job, so many little details.
Now what am I going to do in the car waiting in the car line for my kids at school or driving to and from church on sundays? (my husband drives then)

I'm also part of this WONKY block swap, this is my result :-)
I'm already getting ideas for when I have to be the hostess.

Well you are certainly making progress on your list! That snowman runner is darling! May I ask where you found the pattern? I'm thinking that would be perfect for a friend's Christmas gift! Just cute as can be!

Love the snowman runner too, would love to know where you got the pattern!

What a list you have, it makes my eyes water just reading it :) Well done, on ticking some of it off too.
