I have to admit that the first week in December I told my friend, Mary--that I was "worried" this year that I could not seem to get in the gift making or gift giving mood---I mean it was really BAD!!!!
But today I discovered WHY I was not getting into the mood--it was because I knew what would happen when I did??????
Every year it is the "same" for me--once I open that gift giving mode and open the trunk to start--then this happens----
I truly want to be a "SANTA" and my list just keeps growing and growing and growing to whom I want to make or get a gift for--I am out of control--but at last there is just not enough time, energy, money---to do for everyone on my list--then I get "sad"!!!! cause this is where I am now--I did get in the mood--now I can't seem to stop myself-------
OK ON TO SOME OTHER "STUFF"----
I made this truck pillow last year and I just love it--it of course was "suppose" to be done with the fused web stuff----
BUT I did a very "brave" thing and I did it in needle turn--oh--yes those tree branches were quite the challenge--but I did it (my truck faces the opposite direction too--I get tired of always having to reverse the pattern--so I often have mine backwards!!!)
About 3-4 years ago I did the counted cross stitch sampler with the saying and the country stockings--then the first year that our Yarn Shop opened here in town I seen the yarn on sale and a stocking pattern and had to knit these four stockings--
I have had the taller "string" angel for several years--she is my very favorite one and a couple years ago I found the smaller one at a yard sale--she is made by the same person as my taller one--how lucky I was!!!!
Well I am really "chilly" tonight for some reason--so I am going to go fix me a hot cup of tea and some toast and knit on a baby hat for the hospital!!!
What do snowmen eat for breakfast?????
Hope everyone is keeping their "lists" of gift giving under control!!!! and that you are keeping warm!!!! ( Or cool!!!!!)
