I can't do that this year. We were in the process of rearranging everything in the living room to make room for a pellet stove when Mom had emergency hernia surgery in August. Without her present to direct where to put things, we packed everything in boxes and stacked them up along the walls until after the pellet stove got installed. Long story short, the pellet stove installation was finally completed 2 weeks ago. We still have the furniture to move back in and all those boxes to unpack.
So, I will have to brave the cold and do my best in my shed this winter. Jodi, another Oregonian, e-mailed a suggestion: fingerless gloves. I've wondered about them, but being skeptical as to how gloves without fingers could really keep your fingers warm, I was reluctant to spend more than $1 on a pair. Our local Dollar Tree never seems to have them in stock when I'm there shopping, so I've never tried fingerless gloves.
But today, I found an extra pair of $1 gloves with fingers and cut the tips off, then tried sewing the rows together on this month's Montana Maze block while wearing them.
|Can you tell what color the gloves are?!|
