Don't look at me!
You're the one who said "yes"!
Think of a Christmas project within about three weeks... sure! No problemo!
Rosie's laughing at me. She knew I would go into a panic trying to think of something to make for my Christmas project. She knows that I don't do anything until the last minute. And she knows that I obsess about this kind of thing. I worry about whether my idea will be big enough... elaborate enough... fancy enough!
My head hurts.
But I love making what we're going to make today and I hope you do too... but more on that in a moment.
Let me get today's topic done first and then we'll get back to the project. Today's the day that Gudrun asked us to share a favorite gift from a child.
Never got one.
Okay... that's done.
Alright. That isn't exactly true. Like all of you, I've received quite a few gifts from children and they're all wonderful. My favorite was last year. My friend, Marsha, has a terrific grandson, Brennan. Actually, Marsha is an over-achiever when it comes to grandchildren, she's got nine of them! Brennan is her son Jacob's, son. At eight, he's already well on his way to being a sweetheart and heartbreaker.
Last year, while out shopping with his grandmother, he announced to her that he wanted to get me a rose. Awwww... I know, that was what I thought when I heard it. When his Gran commented that it was just a few more dollars for a whole bouquet, that's what he got me. A dozen roses! Just because it was Christmas! No prompting from Grandma! How cool is that? When that boy's "legal", I'm going to marry him! He'll be perfect too ~ he's going to be quite tall! (His Dad is 6' 6"!)
Now for "The Project"...
Now about that contest... Leave a comment here by 12:00 am, Midnight, November 18th, Mountain Time and you will be entered in a drawing to win... ?
Here's what you're going to win:
- Enough stripe fabric to make at least 12 candy canes.
- Stuffing, Stiffy Fabric Stiffener, and a package of greenery.
- A Madeline quilt kit including 2 charm packs, border yardage, and a pattern.
- Assorted Christmas-related goodies that shall remain a secret and a surprise!
I'm off... the construction/renovation work on my sewing room started yesterday. The sliding door is gone and a new window is in its place. The painting starts on Friday so I'm going to get to spend the next two days scraping popcorn off the ceiling. Ugh... the ladder. I knew I wasn't done with it just yet.
Wish me luck.
