Well, are your presents wrapped? Is the house decorated? Are you ready because Christmas is here. I don't know about you, but it has been a bit hectic here finishing up the last few presents. On Monday night, after my son's holiday walk at school, I decided to finally get on the stick and make a few of these cute mug rugs from a Label Crew project. What a fun, easy project! I started them on Monday, but had to leave them "almost" finished so I didn't miss The Closer. LOL. Yes, pretty dedicated fan I am. I mean, I knew I only had about 20 minutes of sewing left, just top stitching and buttons.
Didn't they turn out cute? Buddy gave them to the latch key supervisors, and I gave them to a couple of coworkers.
I had the Mary Engelbreit scraps from another project....I thought they worked perfectly.
I hope you are enjoying your holiday season, and I'd like to apologize for being so out of touch. A week ago Sunday, I was sewing a baby quilt when the phone rang. One of my coworkers of 12 years had died. He was a very kind man, who in 12 years of teaching with him...I never once heard him complain or say a mean word. The news just kind of sucked the fa lalala right out of me. So, I want you to know, sincerely, I appreciated your comments on my last post, as I appreciate your friendship always. And, I am doing much better tonight. Today was our last day of school, and I think the break will be good for everyone's spirits. I am gifted with working with WONDERFUL people, who I think of as family. While it was a difficult week and half, it was easier because you knew you weren't alone in your feelings.
