December Goals

Thanksgiving was a busy day here and it just carried on over into this week! It seems like we've been running around all week but we got a lot of Christmas stuff done so I guess that's less running around that we'll have to do later:) TWCOE is finished and out and I'll show pics when the recipients get their packages.

This weekend is going to be a quiet one and I should have some good stitching progress to show on Monday. I switched projects and pulled out my Celtic Christmas by L&L and started the swirly skirt so we'll see how far I get.

Before I share goals for December here's a pic of Santa's Magic which I finished my goal on a few days ago, just haven't had time to post...


Santa's Magic 12/1/07

The fabric color is just a bit washed out but it's pretty close. I wanted to put this one away for just a bit since I worked on it almost all month last month. I might pick it up again in a few weeks to continue the Christmas theme this month though.

Onto the goals, here's how I did in November:

Stitching
-Finish Mirabilia contest goal for Santa's Magic-Yes
-Finish 2 Christmas ornaments-Yes
-Start work on stitching surprise for Hazel-Started but I still have a bit to do
-Participate in the HAED SAL Challenge Weekend-Yes

Nonstitching
-Get BB packages together and into the mail-Yes
-Get TWCOE package in the mail on time-Yes
-Cut down plants for the winter-Yes
-Plant tulip bulbs out front-Yes
-Get out of town for a weekend with DH-Yes, well half a weekend anyway!
-Start decorating for Christmas, the day after Thanksgiving of course-We have the bins up and partially unpacked

And for December:

Stitching
-Finish stitching Hazel's prezzie
-Work on Celtic Christmas
-Participate in HAED SAL Challenge Weekend
-Decide on a piece for a January 1 start
-Put together 2008 stitching goals

Nonstitching
-Steam clean the main level carpets before the furniture is delivered
-Clean house top to bottom before Christmas Day with Erich's help
-Get Christmas cards in the mail early (Dec. 10 0r earlier)
-Plan a Christmas Day menu that won't stress me out while trying to fix it
-Bake a few cookies
-Take time to relax and enjoy the holiday season

Have a great weekend everyone!
