A happy almost-Christmas morning to all!
Who's got it all done? Still running around?
Anyone starting a last-minute projects?
You have 11 days.
I'm still waiting on some packages to arrive but my
gift-shopping is done! Now to the cleaning, baking
meal-planning and grocery shopping.
Earlier this morning I cleaned some of the carpets
[not ideal when it's dark out but what're ya gonna do?]
and then headed out to the coffee shop while they dry...
not that I couldn't be there (we have wood floors in the
main parts of our home) but it sounded like a good excuse.
I was starting to get pretty frazzled yesterday as I watched
my schedule fill up beyond my control. This morning, I'm
taking a break and planning. Maybe I can get some
control back? I don't seem to be getting time to knock
things off my list like I used to but for what it's worth,
I'm joining in today again on Texas Quilt-Gal's
to show the bit that I got done.
It's pretty much just a check-in on my grandson's quilt
because the quilting on Hudson Valley Pallisades hasn't
even begun--thus my anxiety.
Getting the entire center done is a decent amount of
progress but I wanted to have the borders on by now
and the backing made. It should still happen this
afternoon and that will have to do. Right now it's
about 50 x 60 and I need to turn it into a twin size.
Due to arrival times of the kids, my cut-off date is
next Tuesday so the bottom line? Finishing both
both quilts is an absolute MUST by next week's
check-in. We all love to sew but I'm not sure any
of us wants to be shut away in there while family
is home. Okay...maybe some of us do...LOL!
I left the house without the recipe I planned to share
today so I'll just save that for next time.
