MY LIFE WITH A 10 YEAR OLD AND MY OBSESSIONS....SEWING and KNITTING!

Friday, December 05, 2008

It's that time of year



I've been busy. Very busy! So busy that I haven't had time to blog. I'm just about done with all of my Christmas preparations. (yay!)

So here's the rundown of what I've been working on:

Sewed 5 American Girl doll dresses for Noey. (they are so cute!)

Sewed 8 Lunch Bags. (being modeled here by Sophie and Noey. One was gifted already and one was not yet complete when this photo was taken.) We're going to make Holiday Snickerdoodles to put inside the lunch bags. (Noey needs a haircut!)

My shopping is complete and I just have to sew up an armchair caddy for my dad and then the sewing is complete! I'm feeling really good about the season at the moment! (and pretty darn proud of myself for being so organized!)

Here's a fun meme I saw over at Jillian's blog. Made me realize that I have accomplished more than I thought! (but still have a few things I want to do!)
