Happy Holidays

Hey yall, I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays, we certainly are. I am truly blessed to have such great family and friends. I managed to get all of the kids pjs done, and everything for my sis except the pants. I baked all the holiday goodies plus some. I could not possibly disappoint the children. My daughter and my nieces look forward to our holiday baking sessions. A great time was had by all as we shared good food,great company, and the spirit of the season.

The Girls loved their pjs, and the My Little Pony robe was a big hit. Another fav are the Lady and the Tramp pj set, too adorable for words. I currently have a sweet little dress for my daughter with matching sunsuit for her new Cabbage Patch doll, courtesy of her auntie, both out of the most darling Peter Rabbit fabric on the sewing table. It's so great to work with no pressure!!! OOh,...I'm giddy!

I also got around to fixing up the place a bit, more improvements coming soon. A great big ol' thank you to In a Mood Designs for my pretty pink explosions. Photos will be the next thing I concentrate on after all the merriment is done.

I have not really had much time to work on Tempting but I have made a little progress. No where near done yet, hope to finish some time before Feb., but knowing my
attention span schedule, that's aiming a bit high. Kisses!!!!

Christmas is when......My Status is??????

Hey yall, I have finished the caplet. I only have to add a few beads to the side. 'Tis sad, but true, I have abandoned the gloves. I may pick them up after the holidays, we'll see.

I am still sewing madly and making progress. I have sewn enuff stuff to qualify for official sweat shop status, and no end in sight. I still need to do doll clothes for The Girls (my baby, my 2 neices, yes capitalized, to those who have been taken hostage, exposed to children, do I need to explain?) and boxers and 2 shirts for my nephew. I also need to do jeans, a purse, a skirt, and dress capris for my sister. Did I mention that I obviously operate outside the realm of reality just recently learned to sew?

It's the holidays so why not drive myself completely nuts and bake too??? Sounds rational right?? Why not make gingerbread, sugar, santa's whiskers, and sour cream citrus cookie dough, and pumpkin, sweet potato, blueberry custard, strawberry custard, banana cream, and german choclate pie all at the same time!!!!!

There are some really cute things in the new Knitty. I have cast on for Tempting, in my favorite shade, purple of course, a shade that oh so perfectly matches my purple suede sandals, and whenever I go away to my happy place , get a minute, I work on it. It's easy mindless work, but the needles are small and the stitches plentiful. Pics coming soon I promise. Kisses!!!
