TIME MARCHES ON

I can't believe it's been a whole week since my last post. Shame on me! To say I've been distracted is an understatement. Poor husband has been very sick with bronchitis and coughing his head off. That means little sleep for moi. But now after a round of antibiotics, he's on the mend and I'm rested (sort of).
I've been a one woman Christmas machine... sewing, knitting, painting, decorating, etc. It's been such fun and very rewarding. I'm hoping everyone likes what I have produced for them. I just really want to have a more meaningful Christmas this year, not so commercial. I've heard several people say the same thing. Maybe it's a sign of the times.

Here's a pic of a set of little bags (Amy Butler design) which I have made for my sister, Gail.
I think they turned out cute. Very quick and easy to make.

Now here's the real fun--an outfit for Bitty Baby (American Girl baby) for Madison. Is this precious or what? I could make doll clothes all day long.
Still got alot to finish with just two weeks left, but hopefully I'll 'git er done'. I'll show some more pictures as I progress. We're putting up the tree tomorrow night and that will cheer me on I'm sure. We got some snow here last night. Of course, it melted today, but it was beautiful while it lasted. Big, fluffy, wet flakes which coated the trees and shrubbery. Should have gone out and taken a picture.
Going shopping with Amy tomorrow. Always fun to spend time with one of my daughters.
I'll report back soon--scout's honor. Nerm

You have been busy. Me too! Tis the season. Fun catching up with you though. Wonderful job on all the sewing! Someone is going to be lucky.

Nerm,
I love all the projects you have been doing! Those fabrics are great! I used to love making American Girl and Barbie clothes for Rachel when she was little. I've been working on some things too. Christmas is coming much too fast, or else I waited too long to get started...hmmm. I loved the snow while it was here, just beautiful. I put some pics on my blog. We're off to the Dickens Christmas now. Have fun shopping!
Love,
Victoria Lynn

Hi Nerm! Your sewing projects look really nice! You've done a lovely job. It looks like your recipients of those gifts will be very fortunate to receive such nice homemade gifts!

Hey there Nerm,
Just read your post, sounds like you need to be taking some Ultra Primal Defence, I told you about that amazing supplement when we got together this past spring...go to Vitacost.com it is much cheaper online! I will be praying for your families health, it is so much harder to stay healthy when school starts and winter hits, we need to do everything in our power to keep our immune systems up! Gosh, sorry if that sounds like a pushy health pep talk, but I care about you is all! :)

Looks like you have indeed been sewing up a storm, it is wonderful that you can make such treasures for your family!

Take care and tell Kitty hi!
XO,
Donna Lynn, your friendly pep talk gal!
