'Tis the Season

First off, I want to thank all of you for your comments to my last post. It was so nice to hear that you enjoy reading, no matter what I blog about! I still haven't decided if I will combine the two blogs or not, but I know that I will definitely keep blogging. So thank you all again!

It's been a crazy last few weeks around here. I've been doing lots of Christmas crafting and sewing and trying to get all of my Christmas shopping done (whew, glad that is finally finished!). 

Last week my Aunt passed away, so I traveled to New Mexico for the memorial service. She was 82 years old and it was not unexpected, but it is still never easy when a loved one passes. She is the one who inspired me to sew, as I received her sewing machine when my cousin moved her into the assisted living facility. She will be greatly missed.

This week will be spent doing my holiday baking, wrapping gifts, and doing some last-minute sewing projects.

I hope everyone is taking the time to enjoy the holiday season. It always seem to go by so fast, doesn't it? I plan to take a moment this week and sit down and read my favorite passage from the Book of Luke about Jesus' birth .... it is one of my favorites.

Blog Re-Vamp?

I am thinking about making changes to my blog ... and I may even stop blogging altogether. Since I started in February, my interests have changed, and I don't crochet near as much as I used to. I'm sure one day I will pick it back up again in earnest, but I don't know when that will be. I feel like I am doing a disservice to those of you who followed my blog for posts about crochet.

I have decided to shut down my sewing blog at the end of the year. It is not getting the traffic I thought it would, and it is time consuming trying to post on two blogs.

If you have any suggestions, comments, criticisms, whatever, please let me know.

Christmas Decorating

I am finally starting to feel better .... I'm not 100% yet, but am slowly starting to get back to normal.

We put up our Christmas tree this weekend; it is still undecorated, but at least it is up!
I'm kind of liking it just the way it is ... and I'm worried that once I put ornaments on it, the kittens will become more interested in it than they already are. So this year my tree may just stay un-decorated!

Speaking of kittens, Sammi has decided that she really likes my new tree skirt:

Here are some pics of some more of our decorations:

Cute chair covers found at Dollar Tree.

I sewed up this table topper for my dining room table.

A cute little snowman that I crocheted last Christmas.

Every family member, pets included, has a stocking.

Hope everyone has a great week and if you're under the weather, get to feeling better soon!
