The holiday season is upon us, festive lights and decorations are popping up all over, not to mention Christmas music playing just about everywhere since the day after Thanksgiving. Having the online shops makes this my busy time of year so not much in the stitching department gets done. Most of my days are spent unpacking boxes arriving almost delay from vendors, and shipping out the daily purchases of our customers, not to mention the eight hundred to a thousand items we send to Amazon each week which takes most of the day to label with our unique bar codes, packing some items into individual bags etc. the process is usually 2 days, but well worth it to have Amazon shipping and storing those items.
I have done some crocheting over the past few weeks when I have some down time, the afghan I'm making for my brother in law is nearly done.
My Orts for the month are few and I don't expect much more until the new year, I haven't picked up my spirit bear piece of hand embroidery or any of the other patterns I have traced onto fabric waiting to be stitched
I made a few errors and had to snip them out of the bear piece so until the crazy season is over I'll stick to crocheting for a while. I was working on a doll sweater with the most horrendous yarn that kept splitting every time I made a stitch so I unraveled it after the fourth row.
I haven't even had the time to pick up a book to read in the past few weeks though I have thumbed through the pages of a few magazines and catalogs and today I finally made the time to write a few letters that have been waiting for replies, I usually don't write letters in December but some of the letters have been waiting since October and that is so unlike me. Tomorrow I plan to take the time to write out Christmas cards and get them in the mail.
I am linking up today at Kathy's Quilts https://kathysquilts.blogspot.com/2018/12/slow-sunday-stitching_9.html
I love linking up to Kathy's site and seeing what she is currently slow stitching then I take the time to see what other bloggers are slow stitching today too. And Kathy's post reminded me I have a quilt I have been working on since 1989 so I pulled it out of the closet and plan to get in a few stitches today and perfect day because it's rainy, cold and damp so a quilt on my lap will be quite cozy.
