Christmas time is near

Thursday, December 12, 2013

I can’t believe I’m saying this but there are only 14 more days until emoticon CHRISTMAS emoticon , including today. And every year I do it to myself and decide to get “crafty” at the last minute! Why should this year be any different? So now I have it in my head to make these DIY microwave heating pads for everyone…

I do emoticon to sew but never seem to get the machine out to do any projects until NOW. At Christmas time I so enjoy giving homemade emoticon emoticon to the ones I love. So I’m thinking I will be in mass production as I want to make approximately 10 of them. Only problem is when I begin to get involved in one of these DIY projects of mine I never can just emoticon (keep it simple, stupid).

No I always have to take it up about 10 notches and like anyone who receives my emoticon emoticon really knows the difference. After years of doing this you'd think I would learn - NOT! So I’m digging through all the old fabric I have on hand from other “unfinished” projects. You know I have to find just the right fabric for each special person - emoticon right. Material is material and I need to focus more on the emoticon & thought in the giving of the gift.

So wish me luck as I plow into my new DIY project to get these all done and of course to my satisfaction emoticon

    You have my sympathy but I have no solutions for you as I am the same way! The only thing different is that I have a sewing room and ongoing projects all year 'round. My family thinks I wait until the last minute to start sewing Christmas pjs for my 14 grandkids because I'm always still sewing on Christmas Eve; however, it's not that I start late--it's just that I keep adding stuff to my list.

Do you think there's some kind of therapy for people like us? LOL

    Well I hate to encourage insanity, but I LOVE my microwave heating pad. How are you making yours? Some people use rice, but I used cracked corn (not from the feed store-it has BUGS) but the irradiated kind. I started with a cotton pillow case (already sewed on 3 sides!) When my feet get cold at night there is nothing like it.
