As always Christmas brings with it the hopelessness of frantically trying to complete each and every project that was planned for presents. This year was no exception with my working right up to two days before Christmas. YIKES. I tell myself each year that I am not going to do this to myself…and each year; the inevitable scrambling to get it all done.
Note to myself: Do not make any more resolutions to get presents done in a timely fashion…it just isn’t happening so why stress yourself out trying to make it happen.
I am satisfied with what I did accomplish and will start posting the projects that were completed after that last DD Christmas Quickie.
As to my lack of posting…I haven’t made anything so why post! I guess that is a good enough excuse. Yes…yes…that has to be it.
Seriously, I just haven’t had the time and kind of stepped off the sewing machine carousel for a month, plus the fact I had to tear down the room for my daughter visiting over the holidays and just the thought of dragging everything back out and resetting the room up was enough to stop me in my tracks. I finally mustered up enough ambition to bring the table and machines back upstairs this past weekend so there is some progress! Maybe I should blame my lack of enthusiasm on the winter and this crappy weather we have been having. Sounds like a plan…
Any whooo….I am anxiously awaiting some boucle fabric I purchased from Gorgeous Fabrics along with an out-of-print pattern from Pattern Mania on Etsy. Maybe once those items get here the creative juices will begin to flow anew. In the mean time I think I will just sit here on the couch, watching the birds, squirrels, turkeys and deer and ponder the meaning of life. Mmmm...that isn't working for me...I think I will go sew.
