Getting ready for the Christmas rush…

Monday, December 2nd, 2013 | blah blah blah, FO's, Holiday, Miscellaneous | No Comments

Thanksgiving weekend means putting up Christmas decorations…it also means I will inevitably freak out that there isn’t enough time to get all of my Christmas presents finished.

It’s crunch time folks…get ready for me to go full-on manic crafter!

I finished two projects this weekend. If I had been brave enough to go out in search of buttons, it would have been four. They are gifts though, so no peeking!

I also spent most of last evening weaving in ends on the projects from my “finishing pile”. I blew through most of it when my eyeballs weren’t glued to the television during The Walking Dead. More room for Christmas presents that will need finishing touches!

I have been up all night.

I thought about doing some blogging at three this morning, but I wasn’t sure it would make sense through the haze of the raging headache I had. I listened to Coast to Coast in the shower instead. I’m sure my family and the downstairs neighbors must love me.

I don’t often try to work on my crafts in the middle of the night. I imagine any knitting/crocheting/weaving/whatever would end up all messed up and I really don’t have the time or the patience to try and fix that kind of crazy. I decided instead to take some time to think (through the pain) about George Noory’s choice in interviewing what sounded like a problem gambler on the subject of Luck and Karma. I also thought about careers in the fiber industry or the funerary arts.

Because of this choice, I have plenty of lovely, error-free projects to stare at today.
