Feeling Better By The Day...

 I felt well enough to pull out my Sweet Stitches "Make Merry" kit.
It features the Jolly Ol' Elf himself, so I would like to finish it while
Christmas is still in the air. I figure I have until Sunday to get him done.
 After Sunday, I think I'll need to look forward to 2014, like the
rest of you. I'd much rather be stitching than out in the stores.
I like the idea of getting back to my regular routines, too...
just in time for the new year!

How are you spending your time between now and New Years Day?

I am only a quilting related shopper. I do not like most other kinds of shopping, including grocery, though that is a must my dear husband reminds me.
For my quilting friends I stitch or sew something for Christmas gifts. For my non quilting friends I bake goodies.

This year has been hard for myself and quite a few of my quilting friends. Illness, deaths, loss of jobs, and of course money issues. I have had a hard time being upbeat. I looked at our situation and realized that it could be horribly worse, and it is not.
At that point I felt a turn around in my feelings. It was then that I started my Christmas gift projects.
This year I am extra pleased that I made gifts. The recipients said that the personal gifts lifted their spirits.
I feel lucky that I have such good friends.

Starting January first I plan to start looking for special gift ideas for my dear quilting friends.

I hope you are feeling better.

Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year to you...K

Love this project you are working on. Can't wait to see more of it done. Sorry to hear that you have not been well. I hope you get better with each day.

We aren't doing anything crazy for New Years. Just patiently waiting for some colder weather to come to Miami. I hope it comes soon.

Happy New Years. :)

I see the holly made it out of "Siberia "! What a neat project. Can't wait to see it complete. Spending time with family near and far is our plan. :)
