and the other is at Me Making Do.
I believe there are a lot of people feeling the Christmas Crunch just like me. I had so many plans for things I wanted to make, but as always "Life Happens", and I didn't get as much accomplished. I don't know where the time goes until I look back over my calendar and see how busy I've been, and a lot of my time was spent with my grandkids so that matters more than anything. They love the things I make them, but right now I'm more into making memories than anything else.
I have embroidered them a couple of shirts (remember how long I spent on the Christmas pajamas?) I had also promised a few people that I would make them the Santa placemats for this Christmas. I finished those last week.
The designs on the placemats came from http://www.smartneedle.com/.
The cute Reindeer and Snowman Alphabets came from http://www.planetapplique.com/.
Now I am minus one shirt, and that is Shelby's. I plan on doing it tomorrow, but that's only if I don't have to go and keep Cayden. He was feeling puny today. If I do, that's ok, as the snowman shirts can be worn after Christmas.
When I was working full time, I always wished I could be off the whole month of December. Now I'm retired, and I can't for the life of me figure out where my time goes, but at least I don't have the stress of working and juggling the time I get to spend with my grandkids!
I hope all of you enjoy the days before Christmas because in my opinion there is just no other feeling like the spirit of Christmas. Let's not forget the Reason for the Season!
