The wait and the apprehension is finally over. I listened to too many people about how confining it is and how long it takes. I was nervous about it and I really wanted to get it done, so I took the relaxant. They also decided to give me 2 Benedryl just in case of an allergic reaction to the dye. The staff were very good and polite and went out of their way to make it comfortable. I had no problem at all and even almost fell asleep. The head attachment with the mirrors made the difference. So with anyone out there with claustrophobia don't be afraid!
While I was waiting to go this morning I did a little Christmas decorating. Even though it was pouring rain outside it still put me in the Christmas mood. I even decorated my new shelf by my sewing machine with a few bits and pieces of favorites. The trim on the front of the shelf is vintage..
I tried 3 different pictures and still ended up with some fuzziness.The print with the trees and reindeer in the background was provided for printing by a blogger. I thought I knew whose it was but I can't find it. If I do, I'll let you know.
Yesterday, I spent a very peaceful afternoon in mys studio putting my blocks all together. I have picked out the fabric for a narrow border--chocolate brown. The plan was to cut the borders and square up the quilt this afternoon, but I can barely sit up, I'm still so woozy!
I got a little distracted as I always do if I check my email and any blog updates. I just had to stop and cut 3(2 shown here) of these snowflakes. I found the tutorial here .
The crepes take:
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup flour
2 tbsps sugar
1 tbsp cooking oil
Beat with a beater till smooth. I used a non stick electric frying pan and an ice cream scoop. It takes about 2 tbsp batter--drizzle it outwards to about 6 inches while spreading it till thin. They cook on one side quickly. Flip and when it's light browned, remove it. It only take a few minutes to cook them all.
