Costumes to sew.
Many November birthdays to prepare for.
And Christmas is stirring and will need attention soon.
And then my husband left me.
just for a class in Nevada for a week.
I've had my hands full
and I've been getting it done
except for the blog.
and the stuff in the confessional (see below).
My checked-off to-do list:
Swap squares, cut, sewn and mailed.
I can't wait to see what comes back!
(some are still waiting to be cooked)
the Halloween banner cut, glued, glittered, and hung
and one matching father-daughter
Belle and her prince costume
(the prince prefers slippers-
what do you expect in Hawaii?!)
I am finishing up a baby blanket this week for our school's harvest festival
and working on a gift for my sweet little neice, Maile.
Then it's on to those Christmas gifts.
I opted for the sugar cookie mix when I made the cookies for Bailey's class to decorate.
And I bought Chloe's costume online (GASP!!!!) which I felt horribly guilty about (I always make their costumes) and was instantly vindicated in my disappointment when I tried it on her and practically fell apart (which I then spent as much time trying to fix the thing as it would have taken me to make one). And I didn't do a single dish in the sink for two days last week because my husband didn't come home 'til Saturday and no one but you and me will know. (wink, wink)
