Happy Christmas!

It's officially Christmas. How did that happen? We have been busy lighting the lights, trimming the tree, and decking the halls. So far, the season is full of joy. What it isn't full of is sewing. I've been busy with a few projects, but I am having a hard time finding my motivation. I think also that I have so many things to work on, that it's hard to focus. Am I alone here? Perhaps not.

I signed up for the Friday Night Sew In for tonight. I was hoping to get a baby quilt finished, but my batting is the wrong size. Ugh! I'll remedy that tomorrow and get it done and mailed out to my customer. I have a few more things I'm working on. I'll take pictures tomorrow when it's light.

So what are you working on? Are you ready for Christmas? I went shopping at Target last night, and practically skipped out thinking I had just finished. Then, I remembered I had nothing for Flower. Literally nothing. And then I started to feel stressed. She's with her mom this year, so I can shop for her after Christmas without too much of a problem. I would love some book recommendations for a tween, if you have any. She loves the Fablehaven series and would like books with a similar feel. She is not interested in Harry Potter, and she is way too young for Twilight. Any help?

Well, sadly I'm no help in the tween book department. Unless she likes traditional like Anne of Green Gables, Up A Road Slowly, etc. LOL. Sounds like your Christmas is well underway -- ours is just getting started. Hoping to decorate this weekend!

Have you tried the Eragon books? I don't know hwat age they are supposed to be for, but both my 13 year old brother (he was 11 when we started with the first book) and me love them. Or the series that starts with The Golden Compass.
And about that christmas spirit. It feels like we started summer, how come there is suddenly snow all around? Feels pretty weird :)

Glad you're back!!! I know what you mean about being overwhelmed. I have a hard time sticking to one thing and seeing it all the way through.

I'm no help in the book department. My kids are all 5 and under:) Good luck!!!

Sorry babe I can't help you with the book thing. I think I am ready. I've got my cards posted and gifts made and wrapped. i just need to find a time when I can wrap hubby and son's pressies. Hopefully Friday. I can't believe the school year finishes on Friday. We have survived kindergarten!
