What Have I Been Up To?

Well, you know, Christmas is coming!  I can't believe how many sewing projects I have to get done by Christmas.

  • Matching dresses for a girl and her doll
    • Progress: 1/2 done
  • Matching pajamas for the same girl and her doll
    •  Not yet begun, fabric purchased
  • Matching dresses for this girl's best friend and her doll
    • Not yet begun
  • Matching pajamas for another girl and her four dolls
    • Not yet begun
  • A few simple skirts for yet another little girl
    • Not yet begun
  • A bodiced petticoat for Margaret
    • Not yet begun, fabric bought
  • A Regency gown for Margaret
    • Not yet begun, fabric bought
  • A Regency gown for myself
    • Not yet begun, fabric bought
Oh dear.  I'm beginning to feel almost overwhelmed!!  But it's a good overwhelmed.  Sewing is, after all, something I love to do.  I just hope I can get everything done in time.
Well, I had better get back to work on my project....  finish the first set of matching dresses and move right away to the bodiced petticoat.
Merry Pre-Christmas Season, everyone!

P.S. On another note, I sold two doll dresses on Etsy this week (YAY!!!) and am buying a serger!!!!  Woot woot!!!!

Whew...the Lord's blessings as you try to finish everything! Now I feel a lot less stressed after seeing your "to do" Christmas list. lol Good to hear from you! :)

Oh dear!! I am sorry for making you feel stressed! :-(
I think I'll be able to get it all done, if I work diligently at it. The key is for me to keep a cheerful and willing heart and glorify God as I do it. :-)

I love your profile picture, by the way. :-)

I know *exactly* how you feel!! Right now I'm trying to get an insane number of doll dresses done for a craft show, plus birthday dresses for my sis and her doll, plus overalls for myself, perhaps some Civil War things, and Christmas gifts too! The pre-Christmas season is always the busiest! :P

I think you'll be able to do it! I can never just sew one thing, I have to work on a million projects or I'll get bored. I'm glad that you are making homemade presents--those are the best.

Oh my! You sound so very busy but you are probably enjoying it. Thank you for the reminder; I have got to start getting presents ready early this year! No more procrastination (wrote a blog post about that)!
Through Christ,

Busy,busy,busy:) I know how you feel! I had to do I think 15 Full pelisses in 2weeks for someone once.

Margaret said...

WOW. I didn't realize you had that much to do. :P Sorry for you having to make the dress for me, yet another thing on your humungticulous list!! I would make it myself if I sewed...but alas, I don't, so I can't. :P
