No pictures

I'm not feeling very motivated to take pictures lately. And I don't really like posting when I don't have pictures. Hence the reason I haven't been posting much. But, I have been sewing, some. Not as much as I would like to or need to, but some. My friends and family make fun of me because I have this crazy system of figuring out how much time I need to sew everyday to finish things for deadlines. I'm up to 79 minutes per day. I'm trying, but that's a long time. But, I really want to get the kids Christmas presents done. So, here's where I am on my list.

1. Make a pincusion for my friend's birthday - due Saturday 11/14
2. Make a Christmas pillowcase dress for Sweet Pea - due Monday 11/30
3. Make a matching Christmas shirt for Bubbo - due Monday 11/30
4. Make flag with Precious S - due Tuesday 12/1
5. Make Teacher's gifts for Sweet Pea & Bubbo's teachers - due Friday 12/18
6. Secret Christmas present project - due Friday 12/25
7. Secret Christmas present project - due Friday 12/25

11. Make bean bag chair for Bubbo - due Friday 12/25

You may notice that I took #12 off my list. It doesn't actually have to be done by the end of December and I just don't have time to work on it until after Christmas. So, I've taken it off the list. And actually, it's not a secret anymore either. It's a quilt that my mom and I are making for my sister-in-law. My parents went and visited my bro and sis-in-law for Thanksgiving and "gave" her the quilt top. Her birthday is tomorrow, so it was pretty close. My mom basically did the entire quilt top and now my job is to quilt the whole thing. Yikes! I'm kinda scared. It's a queen-size and I'm free-motion-quilting it, but I'm gonna do it. I'll keep you updated as things go along.

You are awesome!! We tease because we care :) Cliche, I know, but it's true. Dude, all you have left is the kids stuff? Not that it's not a lot, but that's pretty sweet, you are super motivated to get their stuff done, so you can almost be sure, unless something totally random and crazy happens, that you will get your list finished :D You can do it!! You rock! Good luck sewing today.
