A Day of No Sewing

Merry Christmas to all who are celebrating!

We spent Christmas morning with my mom and brother enjoying a relaxing time together. When I returned home in the mid-afternoon I fully intended to make it into the sewing room for some quality time with my sewing machine. Instead, I opted for a long walk while my kids had some rest time, and then I settled back at the puzzle table. (I also worked with my son to make his first stop-animation video. So fun! And my husband and I played two games of Pandemic. It was a lovely day.)

Last night I broke out this awesome puzzle, a gift I received from my husband for Hanukkah this year. I'm a fan of puzzles in the 500-1000 piece range that are not ridiculous (ya know, the ones where all the pieces look the same!). I'm also a big Disney fan. This stained art jigsaw puzzle is plastic, which at first I thought was kind of odd. Then I realized it was so that it really looks like stained glass. (See pic below.) The quality is top notch and the pieces "snap" together so nicely. I've made decent progress working solo on it this evening and I imagine the kids may help me tomorrow. I'll also get into the sewing room tomorrow. I don't think it'll get done, but I'd like to make more progress on my OMG for December.

What do you do to relax when you aren't sewing?

    How is Pandemic two player? We’ve talked about trying it but haven’t done so yet. We taught the boys Power Grid. My 9yo hated it but my 7yo loved it.

      My kids both enjoy joining us for Pandemic, but we play a lot of two player Pandemic and love it! We're always looking for good two-player games and Pandemic has been our "go to" for a while. I've never played Power Grid. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for visiting, Karin.
