IHSW Monday Update

Well I did get to stitch but not near as much as I of course hoped. Time just flew by and lots of time flew by without stitches being made. Some progress is better than no progress though right?

We got mom's bed and TV setup Saturday. Sunday Mom and me went to get our groceries so this week we don't have to go back out. Today I got busy wrapping presents. I always joke about it's the only time of the year that being spoiled is a bad thing. LOL but I love wrapping presents. It means it's about time for unwrapping them. I just LOVE seeing everyone's face when they unwrap a present. It will be here before we know it now. I'm going to try to get everything done by Thursday.

Thursday is the Shortest Day SAL to celebrate the shortest hours of daylight and the start of Winter. I told everyone I'm going on strike Thursday so hopefully I'll get to stick to it. We'll see. Hope everyone has a great week. Good luck getting everything you need to done.

Your December snapshot looks very festive! I love the glow of the fire. Thanks for reminding me about the Shortest Day SAL. I'm sure I'll squeeze a few stitches in!

I hope you manage to wrap all the goodies and even find some free time for some stitching :) The December small looks so colourful.

Good that you could stitch even with a busy weekend. Hope you get a longest chunk of time for stitching on the shortest day.

Cute little pattern you are stitching up there. Looks like you are missing one stocking for your family.

You have 5 more days Katie! I know you will have everything wrapped and under the tree for your family. I hope Jeremiah has the best Christmas ever, oh and the rest of you too!

The Snapshot looks lovely already.
Sorry that your week didn't pan out how you wanted but hopefully Mum is on the mend now.

Cute start, I really like this series.
Too bad you're not closer, I still have wrapping to do!

Nice progress on the snapshots.
I don't like the wrapping sessions but what I love is watching people unwrapping their presents on Christmas Eve.
