The hanging sleeve is going on my sample for the magazine article I’m writing and I think I’ve taken about 200 pictures….well, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but it feels like a lot of pictures. And they aren’t going to end up on here, yet, either. I showed you the fabrics I was using, but here they are again.
Fun fabrics with which to work and a nice project, but I’m ready to move on to something else.
I have lots of half-finished projects that are nagging at me. Each one is whispering “Me first.” “No, me first!” “Pick me, pick me.” Just like the comments you leave on a blog giveaway…please pick me to win your book or dvd or notion or fabric. And I have to ignore them all, for the most part. Why?
Well, it’s Christmas time and there is shopping to do. I’m not a big lover of shopping, as I’ve said before, so my Christmas spirit doesn’t usually show up until after the shopping is done. That might happen tomorrow! We have the lists, the suggestions, the it’s-never-gonna-happen-wishes and whatever money we have available for gifts. Sounds like the recipe is all there to get it done, so let’s do it!!!! And we have the lights hung, too, so things are good all over.
Then I can relax and gift wrap–that’s the part I enjoy. I can start playing Christmas carols while I sew or knit or wrap. I can think about the cookies I’m NOT baking and be very, very happy about that. Yep, as soon as the dreaded actual shopping trip is over, the Christmas spirit can come full force.
