Clearing the Plate

Yesterday I finished a kajillion pairs of fleece fingerless gloves before heading to work.  I had an order for a vague "let's start with 10", but usually that ends up with a barrage of "Can you make some for me", so I went large and cleaned about 6 yards of fleece out of the closet. (Does that mean I can buy more fabric? just kidding!) In truth, I didn't make a kajillion, but I think there are about 50 pair in there. I will do a more accurate count and take them to work so Jaymin can pick out what she wants and then we'll see how the rest go.  These are very simple to make and are nice stocking stuffers. If there is an interest in how I make them, I would be happy to throw together a quick tutorial. They work nicely for any outdoor activity where finger dexterity is required (like working a guide dog!) Anywho...we have company coming into town this afternoon and then it will be on to the Pendrell and Mondo dress.  Because the Mondo dress will be very fitted, I have decided to do a muslin first (Gasp! I know!!!) I want it to be Mondo worthy! In other news, we received two, count 'em, two new Colt videos yesterday. One was a candid movie of Sir Chats-a-Lot telling Mama a story. Sara angled the camera so we got a profile of Colt, so he did not know he was being filmed.  She put the camera on him in the end and said "Say goodbye to your Grandparents" and he immediately clammed up! It was like "Mom! Have you been secretly filming me???" Love it! My friend Kelly, who is blind, asked how Colt was doing and I pulled up the video for her to enjoy.  She was so excited! She said "You know I have never been able to see the pictures of him...this is the first time I got to see Colt!" Aww! Happy Monday to you all!

Okay friends! I will work on a tutorial Wednesday. Tomorrow is all booked with work and family from out of town. They are so easy you can whip out a bunch for stocking stuffers!
