Give Away, Day 9! 4 Days Till Christmas...NO WAY!

I am not sure about you but it doesn't not feel like Christmas is just 4 days away! It might be...because it is sunny and there is no snow on the ground.  Or maybe it is because my family is all over the place this year...I am looking forward to getting a kid fix this weekend.  Christmas is more fun with least for me.  Today or rather last night, I hit the wall.  I have been non-stop since Sept. 10th when my mom unexpectedly departed these waters and between my back giving me fits and my "can't slow down a moment" attitude  I finally reached a day where I can't put one foot outside my front door. Although I am not able to respond to all the emails during this Give Away time I really appreciate all your notes. So today I nurture my back and my soul....but...

...yesterday I took Lucky Charms class with Tamra at the Stitchin' Post.  It was such a pleasure to take a break from life and be a student.  It had been so long since I had used my little sewing machine that it took me 20 minutes to set it up and get it working! lol  I can't wait till next months class...we're gonna make a Valentine's Day table runner!  Check out the slide show of my day in Sisters.
