Lady's Road Trip

We are leaving for Fremont in a couple hours, just Ingrid and I. Brendan has tons of work to do, and my family is all having a get together over on the other side of the state. So, perfect time for us gals to take a road trip! It's three hours away, which is a long time. For some reason, though, it doesn't seem like that big of a deal. I think it's because for so long a three hour drive meant driving through Chicago and all the horrible traffic, but this three hour drive is just a straight shot across boring old Michigan, no traffic and just some pretty fall trees to look at.

So...we have the dvd player and Charlie and Lola packed up, and we're off to see Great Grandma and Grandpa, Gramma, all the aunts and uncles and cousins. Should be fun!


On a crafty note, these are some of the first ornaments I've made for Applesauce Crafts. I still don't know how I feel about them. Should they be stuffed? I have a bunch cut out waiting to be sewn and I think I will see what they look like with a little fiberfill in them. Either way, I think they're pretty cute. I just got like five more yards of felt yesterday so I will have plenty to work with :)

Have a good time on your road trip. The ornaments are really cute.

The ornaments are cute - really cute! I think they look fine without stuffing, but it would be worth filling a few and seeing how they look.

Those ornaments are cute! I think they're fine unstuffed, but if I were making them I might try putting quilt batting in them instead of stuffing - it gives some substance without making them bulge unevenly. I've switched to using quilt batting for most of my felt food for that reason.

Enjoy your trip, it's always great to visit family!
