Hmmmm.... how does Christmas come so quickly every year? It's like July then BAM Christmas! I've got lots of ideas milling around in my head, but will I get to them? I think I need to write down the "I can't even think about Christmas until I do these things" LIST.
A bag for my mom's friend
A bag for Josh's stepmother to give to Josh's grandmother for Christmas
Three tote bags for Josh's boss
Two sister matching dresses for Josh's boss
Then I have a million and two other things that I had wanted done by now. AND I'm thinking up new projects! I have sewing ADD.
I want to repurpose this dress. It has never fit me properly. It's been too loose on top and too short on the bottom. It brings with it lots and lots of pretty crisp cotton fabric though! I've never repurposed anything except a sheet I bought to make into pillow shams. This would be a real "take something I used for one purpose and make it into another purpose" project....
My husband calls these "bonus projects" - projects I'm too busy to accomplish but I make them my priority anyway. Any ideas for this dress?
In other random news:
*We bought a portable dishwasher, so now I feel like I have a maid!
*I have a lot of grape and strawberry nerds because they were on sale November 1st
*What is with the baby boom? I've heard of at least five new pregnancies in the past week or two... plus I already knew at least five pregnant women...
* I'm entertaining thoughts of democracy actually being a bad thing from a Biblical worldview... Has a government run by the people upset God's pattern of theocracy/ monarchy, thus taking us away from serving one sovereign power, and thus leading to this religion run by the people "everyone can believe what they want" postmodernist mumbo jumbo? Just askin'......
*Getting my hair cut on Wednesday!
This has certainly been a disorganized and random post, but everyone's entitled to one of those once in a while!
And some campaigning - Chuck Norris for president!
