Let's Do The Time Warp Again!

Yikes...where did four months go? I do mean well, really I do. I suppose it's my affliction...perfectionism. Yes, folks, I do spend too much time stuck in a weird I-know-I-can-but-what-if-I can't limbo. Kudos to those of you who do not suffer from this annoying tendency.

Anyhoo, I had a loverly evening at Starbuck's this week showing a friend how to hand sew a felt thingie. We called it a lesson, but really, she knows how to sew so I was just coaching. I also ordered a big stack of new felt from Prairie Point Junction's Wool Felt Central site that is scheduled to arrive today so I'm inspired. I'm probably over committing myself in my mind as I fantasize about all the fabulous Christmas gifts I will make people. Do you know the scene? The cookies are in the oven, the house is perfectly decorated, all those nagging projects are complete, the clutter is gone, tea by my side, sewing whilst my three year old quietly reads a book and snow gentle falls outside. Oddly, the most realistic notion there is the reading child; that kid loves books and stories! Well, I dare not put in writing here anything beyond some ideas, of which there are so many, but I will say I hope to tackle the whole Etsy thing in the new year.

And really, there are 58 days til Christmas so I can achieve perfection by then right?
