Two More Days!


Posted on December 20th, by Amy in random, work in progress. 16 comments

Happy Monday friends!  My girls have just two days of school this week, then we are taking a trip to see family for the holidays!  The kids are so excited, and I think my parents are even more excited!

I spent the weekend finishing up my sewing projects for gift giving, and doing laundry.  Good thing I can quilt while the machines do all the work!  Now to get everyone and everything packed up and ready to fly. . . last time we all flew together, we were a family of 4.  Ya, it’s been a while!

And so, I plan to post here and there, and may have a giveaway planned even, but the next two weeks will be a little slower than normal.  Check in with me on Facebook for day to day updates and pictures.

A picture to complete the post!  I’ve become enamored with flying geese.  These are pieces to some Christmas projects, a post that I have planned to share after Christmas!  Hopefully the sun comes out later for picture time.

Hope you are nearly done with your projects!  Are you traveling too?

Amy

    Everyone is coming to me this year! What a treat. I have finished almost everything I planned on making, which means I will probably try to squeeze in a few more things. hahaha. Have a safe trip and Merry Christmas!

    No travel for me. We will probably have a very quiet christmas. Hope you have a great christmas and good luck with the packing.

    We are fortunate to live by about 90% of our family (and that includes my grandmothers, aunts, uncles & cousins!). I still have more to do than I planned but who needs sleep, right? Have a fun and safe Holiday!

    we’ll be home this christmas, but the times we’re together with our 4 kids become more rare every year, now they’re groing up. so I think it will be great to be with our own 6 (or 7 counting boyfriend the second day) …
    the weather is probably awful too, so it’s safer.

    have a great time, happy holidays!

    Have to make two pillowcases for small children who love horses. Once the pillowcases are done then I clean house and leave for Texas. Did one Xmas already.

    We’re staying home. :)
    Most of my projects are done… except for the doll I’m making for my 2 yo…who’s having an unfortunately erratic sleep schedule and making it hard for me to work on it without her seeing!

    for a moment I thought those were paper napkins and thought I SO need those! Thats what I get for looking at pictures before reading the posts.

    I’m almost done with everything I want to make for Christmas – I think the only thing I have left is some of those little mermaid dolls! And we’re not traveling for Christmas, thankfully – just around town!! Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday!!

    Those geese are so cute! I am very happy to say that I got all my WIP gifts done last week :) Now I’m switching gears and working on a crochet babette blanket, which is basically a crochet quilt :) Too hard to stay away from quilting all together I guess.

    I finished TWO quilts last week (whose bright idea was that!???) so I’m feeling more done!
    Praying you have good weather for your trip!

    [...] The fabric is Botany, because my grandma loves to garden  And I knew she would love the piecing details with the stars, so I took the extra time to piece all the flying geese. [...]
