Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year.  i love everything about it.  the decorations, the tree (real trees), family getting together, and of course, SNOW!  i adore snow.  despite my love for this holiday, this year i actually had to try to get into the Christmas spirit, which is completely backwards for me.  i am usually someone who could listen to Christmas songs 24 hours a day 365 days a year.  i tried, really tried, to get into a holiday mood, but failed miserably. 

until Christmas morning that is.  i woke up excited that Christmas had finally arrived and couldn’t wait to get the day started.  we had coffee as we opened gifts then had our annual Christmas breakfast.  then, off to have a merry little Christmas with my family at mom and pop’s house 🙂 

i’ve been working on a quilt to give my mom and dad for Christmas for a few weeks, and finished at 11 p.m. on Christmas Eve.   i was so nervous i wouldn’t finish it on time, but i did it.  yeah!!!!  i added their combined initials into the center block, and love how it turned out.

after the late nights after work and weekends working to try to make my Christmas deadline, i was pretty excited to give it to them finally.  i think they liked it!!!

on top of the quilt for my parents, i also made a quilt for my aunt that is still waiting for me to add the binding.  i think i took on more than i could chew with all the sewing i’ve been trying to get done, on top of my crazy job and taking care of the house.  hmmmm…maybe thats why i haven’t exactly been in the Christmas spirit this year.  i didn’t take much time to stop and smell the roses (or in this case, the Christmas trees, lol!). 

 i have a few other projects that i want to do, but i think i’ll take a short break from sewing before i begin anything new.  right now, i’m going to try and enjoy my favorite season of all 🙂
