Very little sewing happened this week…until Sunday. I had only really sewed in the mornings and even then, I didn’t get to do it every day.
I am still working on the Frolic leftovers. I’ve had fun playing with these.
I feel so bad that I haven’t had time to work on this…This is my Bitcoin quilt that is still on the quilting frame.
There really hasn’t been a chunk of time to work on it. All of my sewing time is going into the Frolic quilt.
The scraps are really dwindling down…and my finished block piles are growing.
I started working on some blocks with pink star points too.
It’s getting to the point that I will have to come up with some layouts for these soon as I’m almost out of pieces.
On Sunday as I was sewing Kalissa messaged me and said, “Mom. Are you sewing? If you are, film a “Sew with Jo” and I’ll put the video together tonight as we pass out trick or treat candy.”
I thought, great idea! So I did film a “Sew with Jo”. I feel bad that I haven’t filmed lately. I’ve had many requests to keep filming. I actually enjoy doing it. If I have more uninterrupted time, I’d film more often. Hopefully, I’ll get my cancer treatment then I can have a few days of isolation and maybe be able to film again…Then I won’t have Kalissa here to edit it. Hmm.
Anyway…here is the Sew With Jo Video
OOPS. We got busy with trick or treating and the Sew with Jo video didn’t get loaded and edited before Kalissa had to get the boys to bed because it was a school night.
This in itself is really good news. Carver has not wanted to go trick or treating ever. We have tried in years past but he just wouldn’t go…therefore Gannon wouldn’t go.
We compromised that the boys would just hand out candy at my house. They have done this the last few years. It’s a way for them to participate without feeling so scared. They had fun watching out the window to see the kids come coming to my house.
This year two of my older childcare kids came over and visited then they were going to go to my neighbors’ houses. I asked Carver if he wanted to go with them. He did. He didn’t have a costume so I quickly said he could be a fireman, baker or constuction worker as I had all of those things here because of childcare. Carver quickly said he’d be a farmer.
PERFECT. He was already wearing jeans, cowboy boots and a Carhhart sweatshirt. That’s exactly what farmers wear around here. I quickly gave him a grocery sack and he grabbed a plier from the tool kit I have here. Outfit compete.
Well then Gannon wanted to go so we put some googles on him along with another plastic tool so he was a construction worker.
Kalissa and I both knew it was completely lame but were so happy that the boys finally were participating in Halloween without being scared. They only went to the five houses that were handing out candy along my street and ended up thinking it was the greatest thing ever.
So…the boys trick of treating won out and the Sew with Jo video didn’t. Kalissa is going to try to come over later today and see if she can get it to load. Thanks for your patience.
