Feeling like I need some of this festive magic potion to get moving!

I finished the Literary Sewing Circle in October, got really busy, started some non-garment related sewing, then Christmas loomed, and lo and behold, I haven't posted since the end of October.
Whew! I don't know where the time goes!
I do want to wrap up this year with some sewing chat, so my "Best Of" posts are in progress and will be shared after Christmas.
I also want to let any interested readers know that the Literary Sewing Circle was so much fun that we will reading another book together soon. Plans are to announce the title and reading schedule in mid-to-late January. Stay tuned!
What have I been keeping busy with? Oh, bits and bobs...like these embroidery pieces:
|This is a self portrait I stitched, using navy blue|
Gutermann sewing thread over organza and cotton
|And this is a Christmas gift I've just finished -- I can post it now|
because the recipient doesn't read my blog ;)
And I've actually made a few garments that I just haven't got around to posting about yet -- it's hard getting those darn pictures when it's grey and snowy outside!
In any case, here's to a wonderful sewing year ahead for all of us, and wishing you all a peaceful holiday season with some time to relax and enjoy the lovingkindness of fellow humans on this earth, something that feels like it's been in short supply this year.
I'll leave you with this. Merry Christmas!
