More W.I.P.S...and a little bit of swappin'

Wow , and I thought fall would be a time of relaxation and catch -up, but today I realized Im so crazy busy that I havent had any "me- you know that quality selfish time" time. And it 's not like we do lots... between scouts, sparks, church, study,family outings......why do I never seem to be home? Compared to most of my girlfriends im the one with my children in the least activities . It's funny because I mentally can only handle so much of a "schedule". Just a calander with a ton of things on it gets me all anxious. I probably should have written that down for a weird thing about me. Well all I know is that starting in November im going to vow to really be home...and really enjoy home. Doesnt it feel so good to just make some comfort food,craft & sew,decorate for Christmas(yes its only 9ish weeks away!!!!!!) read, I have a stack a mile high of books that Im dying to read but seem to hit the pillow so fast to sleep that they dont get touched! Anyways Im looking forward to some real quality time with my friends,kids,and sewing room! Heres a pic of a bunch of "works in progress". The sunflower pincushion is finished the rest are in mid-process.
A wool & fabric bird and blossom applique table runner Im working on for the holidays which Im hoping to turn into a pattern in the spring when I start my wee pattern biz....what a process! Anyone who has any tips for me I would totally appreciate!
Sorry my photos are mixed up..this is just a few of the goodies Im putting together for the "Christmas vintage swaps" that Im participating in.
And this little pumpin applique is also a tablemat in progress, hopefully finished soon!
Now Im going to hit the hot tub & then go snuggle in bed all warm and cozy and watch a movie I've been waiting to see!
~cheers for now!~

Gosh! I haven't visited in awhile. I come here and you have all sorts of things going on! I know just how you feel. My kids do less than other families but it just seems we're always running somewhere. I'm hoping with Nov. coming we'll slow down as well. Loving your works in progress. Love the bird piece. Would love to know about your patterns when you get your business up and running. I've been into felt project lately and LOVE crows. Hope all is well...

You busy lady!! Kids and kittens and pincushions and patterns and hot tubs and all that jazz! lol YOur new table runners are very nice, as usual. Things just seem to get so hectic for us crafty types before the Holidays, even more so than the reg. folks. Just think, as soon as Christmas is behind us, you should be able to slow things down a little bit and maybe even be able to keep your eyes open long enough to read one or two of those books in that teetering stack! Smile!!!
