Some other things I've been working on...
...this little quilt for Miles. I had bought some flannel and chenille before he was born and am finally making something for him. I've only made two quilts before and they were 7 years ago. I'm just going to tie this and will go to the quilt shop next week to get help binding it. I'm also hoping to whip up a little "lovey" for James. I have some red minky and blue flannel and an insane amount of ribbon. We'll see, I know I'll get Miles' done for Christmas, but not sure about James'.
My Christmas shopping is DONE!! Was really done 2 weeks ago, except I was waiting for a couple things to come in the mail and they've finally arrived. I've even managed to get some things wrapped. I just have to make sure the gifts stay under the tree. James has been taking some for a ride in his dump truck, resulting in "missing" presents. So far I've been able to find them.
I'm heading to the cities tomorrow with the guys. Ben gets to stay back and hopefully clean or paint our bedroom.
The boys will stay with my parents and I'm off for an annual scrapbooking retreat with 3 wonderful ladies. I'm needing to get away and hopefully relax! I was pretty wound up earlier, but after making some oatmeal dark chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter and chocolate bars, I feeling much more relaxed. Now I need to get off this computer and pack myself.
The old laptop is heading in for some repairs before our warranty expires at the end of the year (one of the hinges is broken), so I may be away for a while. At least not posting, but will still see comments and such.
Speaking of comments, what gives? I see all of you stopping for visits, but not very many comments. I LOVE comments!
So leave me a note, how do you manage stress? What do you like to do to unwind?? and I'll see you soon!
