After a quick stop to the fabric store for something last week, I noticed this candy-cane striped fleece as a remnant. I thought it might be the closest I would get to a candy cane pillow this year, so I snagged it. I washed it immediately and whipped up a quick pillow.
The kids love it, but it wasn't what I had in mind. And when Lera's mind is set on something, it is set on something. And there is no room for negotiating. So yesterday, amidst all the hustle and bustle of the holiday-birthday season, I sat down to think. And that usually translates into running or sewing. Since I had already run that morning, it only left sewing as my option.
I grabbed scraps of red and white and worked on it until it was finished. I worked around kids and homework and getting our last and final Christmas tree up and dinner and town council meeting. It was going to be finished.
