If you are like my friends -- super busy -- you probably haven't noticed I've been gone so long between posts. I know all of us are finishing up last-minute preparations for Christmas.
I was sitting here on my bed looking at a new Craftsy class by Gail Yellen on Cover Stitch Machines, when I remembered I have a BLOG.
I KNOW! My lightning fast mind.
Next to me, on the bed, is my very quiet, non-beeping, non-clicking, non-ringing cell phone. No Marco Polos at all. No texts at all. It makes me sad. I guess everyone is busy getting ready for Christmas. The Cuatro Quilters have stopped quilting-in-common so all that fun has stopped. Looks like it is me and Millie again. Thank goodness, I have lots of charity quilts to put on her.
My hubby is at the other house checking on the new offices we added to our building in OKC. I asked him to text me some pics of it as I haven't seen it.
I WAS going to spend the day with Terry tomorrow running to JoAnn's and various other stores, but found out it is going to rain ALL DAY and the next and the next. That put a damper on that fun day because I don't want to do it in the rain and under cloudy skies. I'm like Princess Di when it comes to that. I am like a wilted flower on cloudy days. I like sunshine. After all, I grew up in Phoenix, AZ where you could fry an egg on the sidewalk.
I did do a VLOG last week.
Here it is if you haven't already seen it:
Christmas doesn't start for us until next Tuesday when my Grandson, John and his wife, Lauren come to stay for a few days. It may not feel much like Christmas by then, but we will figure out something to do to fill up our days. I asked Lauren if she would like to make a cape/jacket with me. She said she would, and she really did enjoy sewing the cell phone stands last time she was here. This is the pattern we are going to use:
I think it will be pretty easy since #1: It SAYS it is easy, and #2: we will use fleece. Actually, that is what I was going to get tomorrow since it takes almost 4 yards. Maybe we will end up making vests as I probably have enough fleece on hand for that.
Going back to the Craftsy class. I like to watch them right away in case I don't like them. Then I can get my money back and go on to the next class.
If I don't get back before Christmas, PLEASE have a blessed, wonderful Christmas at your house. I pray you get all you ever dreamed of in blessings, good health and happiness.
Jesus is the reason for the season!
