Christmas Countdown

The Christmas countdown has been on for me for a while. I have been a busy Elf making Christmas gifts. It is a fun thing to do and puts me much more in the holiday spirit rather than buying lots of gifts which I need to do too.

Christmas countdown

One of my projects has been making this advent calendar. I love Snowmen and it was a sweet project to make. The panel was given to me by a friend to make for my children. I added some stars into the night sky for quilting. I think this will be a treasure for years to come!

Forward Momentum

Striped Socks

I have started getting my momentum back. The first sock was done in a week and a half.   That is pretty fast for me, considering the limited amounts of time that I have. It always seem to take the longest to get started, but once you do the ball keeps rolling! (Pun intended)! It feels like that is the same with life as well. I am looking forward to taking a break at Christmas and having time to spend with my children in our homemade socks.

My son bought this bag for me at his school with his own money. He gave it to me last week and I love it. It fits my sock project perfectly. My children are very thoughtful. Life is good!
