For the most part I've been in complete denial about Christmas coming up SOON
although yesterday it sort of hit me.
Also James is going to Melbourne to stay with my Bro and his excellent fiance,
and he came in the other morning and said, "Mum I need a really good present,
Can you make a quilt??"
You have a love a 15 who wants to give a quilt that his mum makes don't you!
Of course I can squeeze another quilt in can't I??
My sister Jo is coming over tonight for a bunting making marathon.
I think she wants about 75 metres of bunting.
No problem is it? No of course not. Gulp.
I've told Jo she can cut and I will sew.
I'm going to CHEAT and use ribbon folded in half.
I've got a wee something on the go for Rhiannan,
but it might not get done before Christmas might it.
Of course it was a priority to finish the cushions for the caravan, ahem.
Well anyway they do look pretty. And they have zips in.
This is a very big deal for me. I'm happy.
Now I just want to thank all the people who left thoughtful comments
on my post about the dummy.
I really really appreciated them and they helped me a lot.
It did make me giggle a little bit that the two people who told me the dummy
should go had no children!!
The dummy now lives on a little dish during the day by her bed
and there is no talking with the dummy in. It's a workable compromise.
I've had so many lovely comments lately and I appreciate each and every one of them,
thank you! thank you! thank you!
Lots and lots of you visited for my giveaway which I draw on Saturday New Zealand time.
I've got amazing feedback about what lots of you want to make.
If you haven't entered yet, it's not too late.
So to sum up, I still have two quilts to bind,
one to make,
10 more mattresses for the Princess and the Pea,
one bag for the explorer
and 75ish metres of bunting to make.
Plus a holiday to pack for, gifts to wrap,
groceries to buy, washing to wash...
you know the deal!
And of course Miss Annie-Rose to look after,
who this week I have treated for nits, yes I got them too :(
throat and ear infection, asthma
and hand, foot and mouth.
Immune system boosting ideas needed. Please suggest.
Currently we are doing antibiotics, inhaler, multi-vitamins and pro-biotic
sigh. Roll on 2012 I say.
You winning on your to-do list??
Please tell me yours is dire as well.
