Been pretty darn productive!!

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I'm taking a couple days off to get back on track with my eating. I always do several jigsaw puzzles (like about a dozen) over the holidays to relax. Just finished a 1,000 piece one last night. It took one evening and the next afternoon. Maybe another one today. I always keep track of all my crafts and sewing projects for the entire year. I am retired, (or maybe just TIRED) and I can't sit and do nothing, so my total for this year was 216 things. A few were just alterations, etc, but most were complete projects. For Christmas I finished about 60 items since Thanksgiving. I did 23 of the new "sashay" yarn ruffle scarves, 4 full size quilts and quilted them on my quilting frame, and two smaller ones, 4 quilted tree skirts, pj's for some of the grandkids, several crocheted rag rugs, 4 "crazy quilt" Christmas stockings, and much, much more. I guess I'm an overachiever. I do most things in an assembly line fashion when possible. (I'm used to doing that from my craft show days) So, like I said, I rest for a few days, and then start working on projects for next Christmas!! LOL I worked in the fabric/craft dept at Walmart for 17 years so I have quite a stash. I always try to make homemade gifts for everyone. I had several kids/families staying here over the last week, so I've done LOTS of cooking. Everyone has gone home,and peace once again prevails! LOL
Hope you all had a blessed Christmas, and are enjoying the peace He gives us!

    Sounds like you really have been very busy. Fun, fun, fun. I can't wait until I'm old enough to retire LoL.

    I LOVE your ideas. I get a lot done...but don't keep track... I usually try to make a few things for special friends but so many people in this area are crafty that nothing is impressive to anyone. Oh, well. It gives me pleasure. Keep Sparkin'!!
