I know what you're thinking-- what am I doing with a 3$ Walmart tree skirt? Well, I hadn't thought about the fact that we needed one, and now there is no way I would get it done in time. So, maybe after all the chaos dies down I will try this tree skirt, Fruitcake Under My Tree, designed by one of my favorite bloggers, Tracey (traceyjay).
(Or maybe you're not thinking about the tree skirt, and you're thinking more about the horrible quality of the pictures... The first few Shaine took, so blame him for those ;) But yes, I do need a photography class, or some good tips!)
So, the list! Here is the list from last week:
And for this weeks list, bear in mind I am working nearly every night this week again, and Shaine leaves on Sunday for a WEEK!
1. Get 4/8 blocks done for the quilt I have been commissioned to make. It needs to be done by the first week of January.
2. Do my Layer Cake Quilt Along block
3. Finish the Christmas gift I am making for my sister and her hubby-- Although I have a feeling a FINISH won't be doable, I hope to at least have it mostly done this week!
And on that note, I have to start getting ready for work! I love that I am working again, but I think this will be my last week of "Open Availability".... Last week was short of course, but the week before that I clocked 44 hours, and this week I'll be clocking about 35 or so. *sigh* I think the majority of quilting mamas I have seen are SAHMs, but I know I have seen some who work, whether from home or out of home, and all I can say is "Wow, how?!" Share some secrets! I barely found time to spend with my sewing machine before I started working!
OH! And I got some wonderful goodies in the mail yesterday! I will share some pictures and plans for those in tomorrow's post!
