I'm still here

Gee I can't believe it's been almost two weeks since my last post. I've just been so busy with Christmas shopping and gift making and running here and there. I did manage to make a couple of sweaters though.

LOL ornamnets that is. I certainly would have no time to make wearables ones. I love these little sweaters. They knit up in no time. I am planning a couple as Valentine's Day ornies too. I even make little hangers to go with them but forgot to get a pic of. I've got most of my shopping done now i have to get busy and finish up the gift making part and then start the baking. It just seems never ending. But I do enjoy it so I don't mind. It just leaves me with little or no computer time but I'll get back to regular blogging after Christmas.

Today I was supposed to have an ultra sound because I have an enlarged uterus. But the lab taech called in sick today so I have to wait til Thursday . I'm not going to stress too much over it. If it means have a historectomy then hey I'm all for it. I wont mind not have a monthly visitor. But I wont know any thing til then so no worries for now.

In other news. I am going to meet Heather today. We have been blogging buddies for several months and discovered we dont live too far away from each other. We have made plans to meet a few times before but things happened so it didn't work out. I am excited and can't wait to meet her.I'll be sure to take lots of pics so you too can enjoy our meeting.

Well I have a few things I need to work on and then prepare to go to Heather's house. Have a happy Monday everyone.

Whatca Workin On Wednesday

Well it's that time again. I do have a few items to show you. First is a couple of stocking made from red ticking and flannel. I've seen a few of these on other ladies blog. It were supposed to be a quick and easy item but leave it to me to make it difficult. I managed to sew the pieces together wrong so that the flannel cuff was on the inside so I had to take them apart and resew them. I didn't do this with just one stocking though as it turns out I did it with both. You'd think I would have learn from y first mistake. Apparently it take more than one mistake to learn from it. LOL

Then I made acouple of simple star ornaments out of wool felt. It's nothing fancy and I just added a wooden button to the middle.
And finally a couple of wool mittens ornaments.

Well thats all I have for today. I'm off to do some shopping. I need more wool felt. I love working with it. Have a happy Wednesday.

The Ghost of Christmas Past

Friday Wayne and I watched The Polar Express. It was really nice to spend time with him like that. Sure it's a cildrens movie but it's becoming a classic and aren't all just kids at heart anyway. However it did make me feel a little nostalgic.

I remember Christmas felt so magical as a child. We didn't worry about how we were going to pay bills and still buy figts for the family. My brother and I just knew that if we wrote a letter to Santa he would bring us exactly whatwe wanted.
It was so exciting to bake the perfect cookie on Christmas Eve because the store bought ones just wren't good enough for Santa. My brother and I could hardly wait for the time to come to get into our jammies and set ou the plate of cookies and milk for Santa and a carrot or two for his reindeer.
When bedtime finally came though we we're too excited t sleep and we'd lay awake for hours listening for Santa's sleigh bells or the pitter patter of reindeer hooves on roof.

But we never did manage to stay awake long enough because we dosed off for just a short time but in that time Santa always managed to arrive without a sound.

We'd wake up again long before time to get up and then sneak out to the tree, tip-toeing ever so quietly, so Mom wouldn't hear us, and sure enough the cookies and carrots were gone and milk glass sat there empty. Under the tree was the exact toy we had been wanting for months.

Mom would never let us open our gifts before 6am. She said she needed a little sleep-imagine sleeping on Christmas, adults were so strange back then-LOL. So we sit in either my room my brother's sometimes for a couple of hours waiting in anticipaton for the clock to hit 6. Then we would rush into Mom's room and jump on to her asking can we open gifts now. And she always managed to make us wait at least another half hour befor we actually made it to the tree.

I loved those days and sometimes I miss them but nowdays I enjoy sharing the magic of Christmas and some of the same family traditions with my children.
