Monday Again

Yes it is.  Monday!!!!  Christmas is 4 days away.  I have a ton of little stuff to wrap and big stuff that is way to weird shaped to wrap.  I did finish 2 bags for gifts and sent them out.  They are really cool.  I went back to my crazy patch which now has another name.

Free Form Crazy Patch.  My friend Barbara gave it that name and I think it fits it well. One of the bags is a tote and the other was made using the pattern for the "Katti Lynn".  I have also figured out that I really need to make more in the style of the original "Katti Lynn" with a few improvements.

Monday Realization

It is Monday.  18 days til Christmas.  ONLY 18 DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  OH my, now I feel behind.  I haven't even started my shopping but I do know what I want to get and I know where I will get it. At least that shouldn't be a problem. 

To many projects and to little time.   I guess the first thing I need to do is finish the Glove Reindeer I started a week ago.  They just need their eyes, nose, bows and ears.  And everything is sitting right there ready to go.  I guess I am getting sidetracked by my current purse.  I am really liking it.  I hope I have enough fabric left to make another one.  I can't wait to be able to show it to all of you and see what You think.  I like constructive criticism. That is the only way I am going to improve and being the perfectionist that I tend to be--------------Well all you other perfectionists know what I mean.

I Got Lost

Yup I think I did.  I was working toooooo many hours and had way to many things in the frying pan.  Thanksgiving is done and I ate too much.  Now it is time to get going.

I finally have time to get back to sewing.  Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I have 2 bags in process.  I gave up on the diaper bag for now.  I was just having to much trouble focusing on it.  So I started something new.  It had been nagging at me to get it started anyway.  So I did.

In that creative line.  I woke up one morning (imagine that)  way to early.  Like 4am.  That for me is way to early.  Anyway,  I couldn't sleep.  I had way to many ideas flying around in my head.  I decided that I might just as well get up and put them on paper.  So I did!!!  I spent the next 45 minutes drawing pictures.  Now I just have to get them in fabric or not.  The ideas are there on paper whenever I get ready.

I am trying to get some gifts ready.  Simple ones.  Like cosmetic type bags.  Pot holders.  Reindeer ornaments.  And one not so simple one.  My dear hubby will not use the quilt I made him last year.  He doesn't want to get it dirty.....?????  He did say I could make an afghan with camo yarn.  That must be the hunter in him---camo.  Uh--ok!!!  So I am working on that when he is at work and when the wrists are not hurting.  Usually I have to hurry and put it away because I forget what time it is.  It goes into a large garbage bag--gets tied--and put in the computer room.  Thank goodness he doesn't make a practice of going through things.  Should be done soon.
