I made it under the wire with my handcrafted Christmas - well about 99% I had my mom's casserole carrier complete and just needed to add the velcro - the last step, and one of the easiest... but where oh where did the velcro go??? Don't you hate that, when you have something in your hand one day -set it aside for later - and when later comes you can't find it!!! Gah - I seriously need a better system of organization, or some kind of system of organization. You neat and clean crafter/sewers would cringe to see my sewing space. I work in a system of piles. This pile is fabrics I may want to use soon, that pile is projects in some form of assembly, and those ten piles over there are my 'stash' -hahahah. And then it isn't exactly cordoned off from the kids, so my husband is constantly trying to 'help' me by moving sharp and dangerous items out of their reach - which creates the daily 'where is my seam ripper' hunt.
But out of my chaos comes beauty - both in sewing and life I think.
So anyway, my mom returned her almost completed present (which I did wrap and give to her) with some velcro from her -much more organized- stash, so that I can finish it tonight.
I'm also starting the final details and finishing touches of look one for PR&P today. I can't wait to share my finished projects with you all - and the stories of how they came to be (yeah there is a reason that I have been in a daily hunt for the seam ripper ;op).
The New Year is right around the corner and I think 2013 has great things in store!!!
4 of the 7 sets of PJ's that were gifts this year - not a great pic, but the winter kiddos all have matching pants and the 3 boy cousins got t-shirts with an appliqued polar bear from the pants fabric. *Yep - the photographer didn't remember to take any of her 4 cameras to Christmas, so photo credit goes to
