Christmas Cheer!

I haven't had time to do much sewing recently, but it's been well worth it!  My husband has been home for over a week, and we've had family in and out over the entire Christmas holiday.  I took a full week off from work, and it's been just blissful to relax and "hang out" with the kids.  Sadly, it's come to an end, but I appreciated it while it lasted!

My parents and all their grandkids - we had a wonderful and blessed Christmas, and I hope you did, too!

Withdrawl pains

With Christmas, Thanksgiving, Marc's impending arrival and everything else, I feel like it's been a month since I've worked on a quilt.  I have tried to get some clothing sewing done in there, so I've been in my craft room a bit, but my productivity has plummeted.  Gunner was having major sleeping issues, and Isadora doing her usual refusal to go to bed, and I wasn't getting them settled until well past nine, so by the time I finished up the usual daily routine stuff, there was no time left to get to my sewing room.  I have a baby quilt that I wanted to get finished, but I've barely started and said baby arrived three weeks early!  So I'm way, way behind on that, and I have about four clothing pieces cut out and ready to sew.  I need to get a separate WIP list for clothing, because I'm constantly confused about what I have in progress and what I'm using various fabric pieces for.  I need half a day just to clean, purge and organize the sewing room, …

Cookie Day!

No sewing this weekend, but it was a busy one!
