Did you all hear that!? That was the sound of me doing the happy dance because I have finally completed sewing all the gifts that I made for Christmas (sorry no pics yet - have to wait until after Christmas to show you!). I started out thinking I just needed to make 14. So I started working on them in May. Then as I was working on them I thought to myself "hey this would be a good thing to make and give to so and so". So by the time it was said and done and the thread and lint all settled I had made 35 of these in various sizes and designs. Yep, 35!!!! What was I thinking!!!! LOL! I finished the last 3 last night. Lucky for me that my hubby wrapped all the gifts to the grandkids so tonight I can go home and wrap his gifts and except for cooking dinner I'll be all done with my Christmas preparations! YAY!
A friend and I get together every other week for "craft night" at her house. I've taught her and her daughter some new things and they have just taken off with it. I will post a picture of the gift they gave me when I post the other pictures. My friend has also told me that there might be two other people joining our group. I told her I might need to start taking pictures of what we're working on, finished projects, etc for my blog. She was more receptive to this than I thought she'd be. Then she said I needed to teach her how to "blog" and set up a blog. So that is on our plans to do. My friend, her daughter, and I started the Country Village quilt before the holidays. My friend is almost done with her top. Her daughter and I still need to finish our squares and sew them together. I have several quilts that are on my "to do" list for next year. I also need to do more rug hooking as I have several projects I'd like to complete next year in those as well. Time for me to make a list of what I need/want to finish in 2013!!
I'm not sure if I'll be able to post before Christmas so...
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you have a wonderful and peaceful holiday!
Thanks for stopping by!
