Bits & Pieces of December

We had our first snowfall - all 15 minutes of it on Sunday afternoon. It was gone before it started, but I did get a photo of it on the porch railing. We may be getting more snow next week. Woohoo! I am a snow bunny and I can't wait for the first real snowstorm.
I took my first of the month photo. The view is looking bleak and leafless. I can see the parking lot below. When I sit at my desk I feel like I am on display. In some ways it's kind of cool. "Look at the woman in the Patriots sweat shirt working at her desk. She needs a life!"
My sewing studio is out of control. I have never let it get this bad. My sewing table and cutting island are covered with bits and pieces of projects. You can't see it here, but the stool behind the island has three or projects sitting on it. The closet shelves are over flowing with half done projects and scraps from other projects.
The cutting table and the bookcase area are just as bad. Notice the large Jo-Ann bag on the floor. It is full of fabric for projects I want to get done before Christmas. Do you think I can get everything done before Christmas that is on my list? I hope so.
I have completed a few projects this week, all of them for swaps. Here's a sneak peak at what I've been working on . . .
Next week I get two days off in a row and DH is traveling. First up on the list is cleaning the studio. I simply can't work in there until it is clean again. I need to strip it down and rebuild it. Do you think I can get it done in two days? I hope so. I truly need to get it moving on the remainder of my Christmas projects.

I have two new buttons on my side bar. One is for Wildcraft Farm's 12 Tips For Christmas. You need to go and check them out. Janet will be holding a drawing for two gifts on Christmas day.

The other button is for the Giggle Club hosted by Sonya at Giggle Buttons. I purchased some of her buttons last year. Recently I found her blog and from there found the Giggle Club. I can't wait to start receiving the packages in February.

That's all the news from here for tonight. I hope everyone is getting their Christmas list done.
Sweet P

Your sewing room does not look all that bad; you should have it cleanded and organized no problem in two days. Good luck on your projects for Christmas, I hope you get everything done that you want.

I know it won't be any consolation to you, but your studio at it's worst looks better than mine ever looks even at its 'best'.

Your projects look very nice...I recognize that little block from the Cyberstitching day.

Good Luck getting all of your projects done in time for Christmas. I have been adding a few to the 'to do' list in my head, but I'm not under any pressure to actually do them because no one is expecting anything. I try to keep the expectations low so nobody is disappointed! LOL.

Would you please email me your address? I've got your PIF almost ready and would like to get it to you before Christmas :-)

Do a quick little tidy-up, certainly don't waste 2 days - you can get lots of stitching done in that time!
Hugs - Lurline!

I certainly agree with you, I can't work unless my studio is neat and organized. I need to be able to fin things fast. I think that you can get it all done, no problem. And you will get some of those Christmas presents taken care of too.

A messy sewing studio is just a sign of a very creative person! :) The furniture you have in there is really nice! Where did you get the tables?? Ummmm is it wrong for me to look at your room and my first thought is "I can't wait for The Son to move out on his own so I can get his room"??? Is it wrong I ask??? Hmmmmmmm

You sewing room isn't messy - it's just worked in. A sign that creativity has been happening *s*

Those people outside looking in are saying "look at that woman in her warm sweatshirt and we are outside freezing our buns!" And a mess in your studio, well, you're being creative!!

Thanks for sharing the links. I'll check them out. I don't think your sewing area looks all that bad, except maybe where the JoAnn's bag is. =) Yes, I think you can get everything done! Don't know if you'll survive it, though. LOL!

I love the little peek you showed at what you've been doing.

Looks like you have been busy in the sewing room! I just seem to have stacks of stuff everywhere at the moment...but it wouldn't all fit in a photo so I won't share.

Looks like you just have stacks and stacks of fun around.
