The power was out for nearly 30 hours (thank goodness for the gas fireplace). We cooked on the gas barbecue. The tea was awful. Just sayin'
It was a big surprise for this gal, who ALWAYS seems to be sewing at almost the 11th hour at Christmas.
Since there was no power for Bernie, I did some hand sewing. I played around with pentagons and hexagons. I made small, medium and large Tilda patchwork ball decorations. I used my clip Ott Light. I clipped it to the front of my hoodie and worked away. The light was more than adequate to work with.
During the daylight hours, I was able to do more involved hand sewing So far, my medium Tilda Winter Wonderland polar bear has legs attached. But, I had to set him aside to, you know, re-enact pioneer living by cooking outdoors in day light, and finding batteries, which we apparently hide all over the house...

I hope everyone is having a good new year so far! I am hoping to be a better blogger in this new year. Honest.
