This time of year is always busy, and once again, despite my best efforts to be in control of time and space, I have got a whole lot going on.
Some of this is my fault. I decided to do a book give-away at this time of year. So now my office looks like the post office.
But there have been other things, too. This weekend, for instance, we had the Great Furniture Shuffle of '09, moving the last of my son's furniture from our house (bye-bye, mate's bed...sniffle...) to his new digs, as well as moving furniture from a relative's house that was going to my son's new digs, our niece's house and our house. That was a day, especially considering I have the upper body strength of a gnat.
However, I'm also trying to get my Christmas sewing done, so yesterday, I made an outfit for Niece's New Baby. Do you know how hard it is to find fleece in a pattern suitable for a little baby?
Also, note to self for future reference: do not sew white fleece while wearing black jeans!
As far as work goes, I'm waiting for revision notes (always stressful!). I also have to come up with a new title.
So, today, I have books to get ready to mail, titles to think of, and sewing to do - matching outfit for New Baby's sister, nightie for sister, dress for Baby, pj bottoms for Nephew, and two Christmas stockings. If the revisions aren't too much and I have time (cue maniacal laughter) I hope to make a couple of little mice decorations, too.
