My Christmas Projects


Here's what I made last week. I gave it to Katrina for her Birthday. It's a wall hanging or table topper. I don't remember the name of the pattern right now.

I bought a couple of months ago a 10 lb box of scrap fabric on eBay (with shipping, about 1$ a pound), and I'm using up all of the Christmas fabrics that came in the box. I have two more little things to do and I'll be done with those.

The box was a wonderful investment, I've already had such fun with it.

In other ridiculous news, I've almost finished wrapping my Christmas presents. Not all of them, but all of them that I've already purchased. It's terribly early. It's not even December yet. I'm a crazy person. But that leaves lots of time to work on my quilting projects and I like to have a clean table for that, so maybe it's not too awful.

And I ripped the music off of all 52 of our Christmas CD's onto the computer, so we can listen to a super mega mix of Christmas music. I wonder if there's a way to find out how many hours total there are?

Goal for this year after Christmas: Don't buy any Christmas CD's.

Yes: we now have 30 hours, 46 minutes and 4 seconds of Christmas music.

52 Christmas CDS, are you serious?

And to think that there are poor children in China without even one Christmas song.

I just love Christmas music! And there are so many different kinds. And even at this moment, knowing that I have an absolutely obscene amount, I can think of at least 3 cd's that I don't have that I want.

It's a sickness.

I saw three Christmas CDs when I was shopping that I wanted to buy for you. Should I contribute to the sickness? Does it count if I buy them for you?

Funny, I can think of at least ten christmas CD's that we have that I DON'T want.

Ooh, new cd's? Yes, buy them for me!

Wait...you're not supposed to be spending any money. Save it, and you can buy them for me after you're done with school and you're a published author and professor and all that.

And, Mr. Cranky Pants, I have passed along 6 of the Christmas CD's that you don't like.
