Getting it done – one piece at a time…
It’s really early but the kids are out of school this week for the holiday. So we took advantage of it and got them to decorate the house for Christmas. Thanksgiving is at another family’s house so we’re free and clear to start early. But that means my sewing machine is tucked away and my sewing area has become Christmas Central. I’m not sure where I’ll be sewing during this time but there is no way I’m not sewing for the next few weeks. I just have to be okay with a temporary, possibly cramped, space. And as long as I have my sewing machine to keep me sane, I’m okay with that. Just a brief update on what I’ve been (or not been) working on lately –
I haven’t been doing much lately and there is nothing new to add from retreat. I’ve been working a lot lately and instead of quilting during breaks like I used to do, I’ve been playing Sudoku on the iPad. 🙁 Last night I did finish watching “Quilting Big Projects on a Small Machine” with Ann Petersen and I was inspired to do the block by block method for Raining Cats and Dogs. I need to check out the finishing instructions and see if that method will work but I think that will help me get that project quilted.
Thanks to the hubby, I’ve got all the ingredients for our part of the Thanksgiving Feast and I’ll be starting that tonight after work. I’ve got half my Christmas shopping done – thanks to the internet and only a few more people left. The Holiday Newsletter is not even close to getting done but all the pictures are picked and I’m making it real simple this year. No one cares about lay out and stuff – all they want are the pictures of the kids. And this year, that will have to be good enough for me too.
What is on your WIP Wednesday?

See more WIP Wednesday posts at Freshly Pieced. Also linking up with Kate at Life In Pieces. 🙂
Sounds like you’ve got a jump on the holiday season. I have a sewing room, but it gets converted to Christmas present wrapping about this time of year. Hope you find some space and time to stitch over the holiday.
Thanks Kate. The Holidays seem to be taking over everything this year. Happy Thanksgiving!
