We booked the tickets months ago before we knew if Matt would have time off work. Once he was approved for leave, there were no more tickets left. I am happy he is driving down though, since that means I can fill the truck with goodies from my shopping adventures in Grande Prairie! Matt is only down for one week and then he drives back to Faro to get back to work. The boys and I will be down there until the 1st of December.
I haven't seen my father in 13 months but I did see my mom in the spring when she drove up for a visit. Quite the change in me since I have seen them last!
While I am gone there will be a craft show in Faro that I have always attended. My wonderful husband has volunteered (read: been told) that he will run my table for me since I will be away. I have been sewing my heart out to have a variety of items ready for the show. Plus sewing a heap of custom orders as well.
I finally sat down last night and made myself a pair of mittens and was heartbroken when they ended up being just a wee bit too small for myself. Tonight I cut myself out a new pair, but I am just too pooped to work on them! I am going to take them down south with me and will finish them down there.
Here are pictures of what I have made in the last week:
|Fox fur earmuffs!|
|Blue fox trimmed mitts.|
|Lynx fur earmuffs|
|Beaver fur hat|
|Ginormous gauntlet mittens!|
|So sad these are too small for me! Fuchsia seal with inlaid black seal in the shape of a raven. Blue fox trim.|
|These mittens will make someone happy!|
