My Christmas shopping is on schedule and that's about all I can claim in terms of being ready for this holiday season. Well that's not quite true, I'm more than ready for the 2 weeks of vacation that's coming up.
I've learned (yet again) that it takes more time to finish a project than you think it will. Geisha is progressing, but I don't think it's going to get done in time for Christmas. I can finish the top, but I don't think I can get it to the quilter and back again in time for Christmas. I'm contemplating wrapping up just the finished top to put under the tree. Has anyone done that? How well did that work out?
Having just said all that you'd think I'd be spending every spare minute in the sewing room. That just didn't happen last week.
Thursday I didn't feel well, so I didn't sew. Friday was marathon Christmas shopping. Which needed to be done, but I was too tired when I got home to spend any time sewing. So just 5 days out of 7 last week where I made it to the sewing room. Which really isn't shabby at all considering the schedule we've had. In the overall scheme of things, it's been a good year. Striving for 15 minutes in the sewing room every day has meant that I've done a pretty good job of meeting most of my quilting goals for the year. So even if Geisha doesn't get completely done, it has gone from being an idea and a pile of fabric into something real. Which was really the whole point.
How did your crafty efforts go last week? Are you making progress or did you have other priorities with the holiday so quickly approaching? Here's Mr. Linky, link up and share how your holiday crafty efforts are going.
