shopping is done!,, all i had left to do was food shop for fresh veg and fruit , thank goodness that was all i needed to get the stores are just crazy ,
I have finished the little Christmas dress and it is very cute, even if i say so myself
I dont have anything wrapped yet but i will work on that tonight while watching some tv, and i still have pies to bake and some shortbread cookies, but all in all things are going well
One last sewing project to do, the mans dress shirt,, i hope that i can get it done one time
but once it is done the xmas sewing will be done (Ya me) i have enjoyed making all my gifts this year and have learned a number of new sewing things,, i have done my first invisible zip , worked with fabric that i have never tried before and made my first bwof pattern, and made some changes to patterns to design them to work for what i needed, maternity clothes for my daughter and a nice jacket for my brother ,oh and i aslo used some embroidery stitches on my machine for the first time

Geepers!! ALL I have to do is 2hrs of cleaning (I'm timing myself!!) and decorate a small tree (paper chains & popcorn strings). I get TIRED thinking of it all!! ;0)
You've got lots on your plate. But it sounds like you're enjoying yourself... THAT's the "key", eh!! If not, I find it's time to scale back...
Congratulations on all the sewing achievements you've made this year!! The Timmel 2008 swap!! :0!!
Merry, Merry Christmas!!
