Loved The Turkey & 25 Days of Christmas
We had a lovely Thanksgiving. Lots of friends, family, and football. I brought my camera, but forgot to take pictures! oops.
I've spent every free moment I have working on my apron for the apron swap... now, you must realize this is the first apron from a pattern that I've completed on the machine. Patterns are a little annoying for me. The first time I thought I'd pieced everything together right, but you couldn't even tie it around your waist! So, I had to get my new friend (the seam ripper) and redo what I could.
Here's a hint, but I won't reveal until the Apron Swap Party Day- next Friday. That's the day we get to open our packages and read our new recipes to try.
I really like sewing, and since it's my latest "thing" I have at least 6 projects going on. Next week we're having a bazaar at work, and I'd like to contribute to that. Also, I have some big projects starting next week at work...
Which is why I'll take a blogging break until the Apron Swap Party! I just need to get off the internet, avoid online shopping for at least one week (I especially need to stay away from online fabric stores).... you know, all that stuff we did before the Internet came along.
I would like to propose a fun blogging thing- I don't have much response when I propose recipe swaps :( (that's ok), so I'm hoping to this time. I'd love anyone to join in on this one...... pretty please?
How about a 25 Posts of Christmas? For each day, share/post an ornament, card, photo, memory, etc. for each day of December from the 1st to the 25th, or 25 total posts. I hope you'll think about it and join me. Be so kind as to leave a comment if you will join in on the fun.
Have a good week!
