Anything Christmas

Yes, I am still working on my stitching. Just taking it slow. For my hand's sake and because of other things keeping me busy right now. I do manage to put a couple stitches in a day though. Life is finally showing some signs of turning around and letting us get back our normal routines.

I admit it. I want it all. I want time to do it all. I want all the walls in my home to be over flowing with stitched pieces. I want our beds and closets to be full of loving quilts I have made. I want to scrapbook and journal our lives, our memories and what everyday means to me. I want a garden that makes you want to pitch a tent and live outdoors among it all. I want a magazine Christmas. You know the perfect tree with everyone all cozied up and happy. Not to mention that the house just looks perfect while doing it all on a budget! LOL. Now I will take a moment for a *big sigh* while reality moves back into place. It's frustrating but it keeps me moving.

This mini album is for a challenge over at Practical Scrappers. It will be a good place to keep photo and memories of Christmas needle arts I make or gifts.

Oh isn't that true! We all want to make so many things that we don't have time to make. Too bad we can't make more time! lol! I love that little Christmas album -- what fun that will be to fill!

Sherry, you are in good company with everything that you want! It is great fun to dream, isn't it? That Christmas album is adorable, really caught my eye. Good luck with getting those stitches in and I hope your hand continues to be better!

I know exactly how you feel. I always wish that I had the month of December off from work to get everything done.

Of course I also wish for January, February, March April........... LOL

I LOVE the journal that you made. It is fabulous.

I'm just like you - want things all over the house, so you're in good company. Maybe someone will hand us all some more time in the day to get those things done!!

I love your journal. That's something I wish I had time to do. Such great memories in those.

Well, at least you have big dreams and lots of hobbies you love!

Sharon said...

ditto! I want all those things too... and they are all partially done, never fully done. :P

Oh, Sherry, I want it all too!! :D
I've found that I can have it all - just not all at the same time, lol!
