pulling irons out of the fire
Hi everyone. I lied. I said over there ----------> in my sidebar that I'd do one more shop update next week. Unfortunately, I think it's just too much. It's time to call it quits for the holidays and concentrate on other things.
For those of you who ordered Baby Dolls, they're almost done. I've been stitching on heads and faces today, and tomorrow I'll be sewing the wee dresses. I will ship the out-of-town dolls first thing Monday morning and then I hope to have all the in-town dolls ready to deliver later in the week.
I think I'll take a break from the doll factory this afternoon and work on this new Advent Calendar a la Martha. A few baby socks, a little rick-rack, some line and pegs and poof! New tradition. The activity tucked in each sock will be nature, family, and giving oriented. There are tons of great ideas floating around out there. I'm striving to keep the season calm and meaningful. Our first activity tomorrow will be picking out our tree. Yippee!
Have a great weekend! xo.
