Merry Christmas!


This is Day#2 away from home (and the overworked sewing machine) - hurrah!

(hushed voice) Am writing to you from a darkened hotel room, where we stayed the night. Ooo, very exciting. Actually, not. One small child kept us up all night. And no, it wasn't the next-door kid. It was our own Kantankerous Katie. Had a cough, poor kid, and not happy with this Foreign Room and Weird Bed. It is now 9:08 am and the kids are finally sleeping the first long stretch of the "night". Shame to wake them up for breakfast, really. Or to get back in the car and drive through the blizzard (yes, we are having a very white Christmas) to the house where we usually spend Christmas day.

We opened some gifts last night and I got a gift card to Mill End Textiles! Nothing like fabric money, I say. Also pleased to report that the kids got only ONE handmade gift. I love handmade, but the fewer they get, the more time I will have spent with them playing and enjoying Christmas -lesson learnt from last year's crazy donut-and-dress-up-box making madness. That said, I still found myself sewing Christmas gifts on the 23rd, when I should have been packing for this trip. It was a plain miracle that we finally left the house without omitting anything vital, like the portable potty seat adapter, for instance. Claps on back for everyone!

Have a restful Christmas, everyone, and enjoy your family! No crafting now, people! Eat food! Play games! Sleep!

  3. Chrissie, that's AWESOME! I can't believe you made 8 sets! I did one set and felt like I was already pushing the limits of sanity. Hurrah for you - I hereby dub thee Mass-Producing Queen! Am so glad all your little ones loved theirs! Thank you so much for telling me all about it.
