What a whirl this holiday season is right now. I am sewing of course. People seem to wait until the last minute and then they need it right now. I guess I am guilty of the same so I shouldn't bemoan them. I finished embroidering the cutest t-shirts for a family having a baby this week. I hemmed a concert dress for a girl in a local college's children's choir. Now I have a parka to make for some one for a Christmas present. I also have 10 pairs of pants to hem for a man. Last night a girl came over and tried on her dress for the vintage ball that needs taking in. We are also going to the vintage ball. I ordered two tricorner hat blanks this week for the General and Captain Cool. This weekend I go in search of material to make the outfits they will wear. I wonder if I will have time to make myself a dress? Besides that Monday night we went to Captain Cool's CAP banquet. Tuesday we spent the day at U.Va. with the Neuro Opthomalogist about the General's diagnosis. Wednesday was shopping and Awana. Tonight the General and I have a Christmas dinner for one of his employers to attend. Tomorrow night we are going to Scrooge. Saturday our Sunday School class is having it's Christmas party and Sunday evening we will be attending the movie "The Nativity" with members of our church. Our church has bought out all the tickets for two showings at a local theater and may need to do a third. I certainly hope next week slows down some. I have so much still to do.

Sew Long for Now!

Sounds like you need a good relaxing foot soak and rub--that's my answer for stressful busy times.

Have fun though in the midst of all the busy-ness. Smile and wow them tonight at the dinner. :)

Yeah, barely anyone asks me to sew anything until December hit and I'm going crazy trying to get it all you ever say no?

Lovely tree!

Your tree looks great. I know I always say this, but I don't know how you do it all. I'm amazed by how busy you stay.

I hope the General got some good news or good advice for dealing with his diagnosis.
