Are you all done with your Christmas shopping?
...barely started, kind of in the middle?
I'm almost finished buying presents thanks to the
ability to shop online. Whew, saved gas, time...and
lots of foot aching.
I've been up to some other forms of mischief tho, besides
buying fun stuff online...
Ida (the long arm) and I quilted a couple of small lap quilts
for that a long distance friend, who asked me to do for her.
Did a bit of shopping with DH, (well, it was more of just a nice
walking experience because we didn't really buy anything)
....at the new Traverse Mountain Outlet stores. There is a cute
50's style coffee shop called Johnny Rockets
We enjoyed some yummy food and 50's music from the jukebox.
Doing a little bit of spinning on my Pocket Wheel. This fiber is
70% alpaca and 30% silk. It spins into a pretty yarn but...
boy!..was it "fly-away" stuff!
And...I've been doing some playing on Bertha (big Bernina).
It's a machine embroidered pattern called Pillow Talk from
There are a group of seasons in the one pattern. They are
so fun to do...yep, I would consider them addicting!
...sewing on a stripe binding.
So (or SEW)...what have YOU been up to lately?
How are you doing with Holiday preparations?....what do you
do to keep a bit of relaxation in all of the holiday commotion?
