Time Limited

Between now and Christmas my time on myLot will be limited as I finish the pillows for my family's Christmas presents. I have five ready to stuff, stencil and finish, leaving me four left. From what I've been able to ascertain it's going to take nine hours minimum to finish the final seams after stuffing. So I have quite a bit of work left on them to do. I am very happy with the progress and the way they are turning out. I can't wait until they are completely finished and I give them to my family on Christmas day. I will do my best to get pictures of the finished product before I wrap them so you can see what I've been doing these last five days. I will have the Daily Bible Study shortly. I will also do my best to catch up with all notifications before the New Year begins. Thanks for reading.

Too bad you waited so long to make up your mind to do the pillows. Can't wait to see the results.

I know many of you will be finishing up your preperations for the Holiday and I will complete mine on Thursday but will still be on here as much as possible as I have only two more things to do or Christmas. We will be waiting to see the pillows and how lovely they turn out.

I think many of us will be spending less than normal time on here due to the last minute Christmas things we are doing.

Those who do not celebrate Christmas will be online as much as they normally are while those who celebrate Christmas will more than likely be doing other things.

@Marcyaz From what I have seen, it seems that secular Christmas is celebrated in lots of places

Next time I take on a sewing project it won't be by hand. I'll have my sewing machine up and ready for use. Right now I have no place to put it, and no outlet available, and if I did, it would most likely blow a circuit.

I always loved handmade gifts from my family. My granny has made me beautiful crocheted blankets and dolls. So much love goes into a handmade gift. Your family is very fortunate to have those gifts from you.
