Cody is working tonight and Evelyn is with my mom. She usually spends a night or two a week with my parents because 1) everyone likes that arrangement and 2) because of mine and Cody's work schedules, an overnight trip is sometimes in order to avoid a lot of back-and-forth driving. Here are some pictures of Evelyn and Mom doing a 'cooking craft' last week.
Evelyn was super proud of her marshmallows covered in melted chocolate and sprinkles. I
ate one and nearly died of sugar, but made sure to thank her for
sharing her beautiful cooking. I miss that girl. The house was way too
dark and quiet when I came home. Cody left the tree lights plugged in,
but I unplugged it to save electricity. I spent a while tidying up,
and I ate a sandwich. Then I made my square for today.
looks more blue in real life, but this is how things turn out with the
lights. Maybe I'll get up a little earlier in the morning and take a
picture with some natural light. I made some more purple centers for
the rest of the week, and I have lots of color combinations in mind.
But I like pacing myself. There are gifts to make and Christmas cards
to order and messes to clean up. One square a day is something to look
forward to. So. More dark colors and blues. It seemed like a good
choice for a quiet and cold night.
