Well, some things were not accomplished this season and some things were. Sadly, the baking marathon that I usually undertake a week or so before Christmas, had to be eliminated from my itinerary. Decking the Halls, check. My kids gave me such a bad time last year about the sad state of the decorations that Steven and I made an extra effort to dress up the house. Our Gingerbread house making party also had to waived in favor of time saving. Why you ask did I have such a time crunch?
I had to finished my grandson’s Christmas stocking! To Steven’s disbelief, I did it! Hot damn, it took all of my will power to keep stitching at every opportunity. I was sooooo ready to move on to a new project! As the finish line came closer, I got a last burst of energy and sat there till it was done.
The date stamp tells the truth, I still had 13 days to sew it all together!
Well, technically speaking I had only 12 days to finish this stocking. My grandson tells me it had to be in place by Christmas Eve or santa wouldn’t be able to find him.
The suspense was killing me, so was the attention span I needed to finish. I gave the stocking to my daughter Maureen to surprise Donovan with. I still had 9 Days to spare even! I was glad I finished when I did, cause I then proceeded to work almost all those 9 days with just enough time to sleep in between! Donovan loves it, so it was so worth the effort! I am back on the Good Grandma List, well for a little while anyway, lol
I thought I was finished with Christmas Stockings…… but no, my son, Shamus asked me to make one for his fiance for next Christmas.
