Time is flying by!!

It's almost mid-month....I can't believe it!!   All my cross stitching plans for this month seem to be falling apart.

I intended to complete my Angel of Hope and Coral pieces as Christmas gifts.  At this point, I'll be terribly lucky to finish just one of them!  BUT....I'm not giving up hope just yet!!!  :)

Here's a quick update on what I've accomplished with my Angel:

I have most of the blue portion of her dress complete...so it's mainly just the white lacy part left to do!!

Coral hasn't budged since my last update :(    My plan is to focus on that piece all next week.  I have to go out of town for work, which hopefully means some downtime in my hotel room in the evenings.....perfect for stitching!

Lesson learned - Don't make grand stitching plans during the holidays!!

Speaking of stitching plans....I created a page dedicated to my 2012 WIPocalypse plans.   I'll probably end up adding/deleting what I have there.....mostly deleting!   There's so many pieces I didn't put on there that I want to finish too!!   Never enough time!!

With so little stitching done on my part...what in the world have I been doing!?   With  having to go out of town next week, I wanted to get all of my Christmas gifts wrapped and shipped off to out of state friends and family.  I even have all my non-shipping gifts wrapped and ready also!!

We also trimmed the Christmas tree.....here's a picture of some snowflakes I worked on with my son:

Star Wars snowflakes!  :)    Ok...my yoda snowflake looks a little off, but you get the idea, right?

 
I hope all my fellow stitchy bloggers are doing well and enjoying this last month of the year!!

LOVE the Star Wars snowflakes, did you invent them or did you find a pattern for them?
Please tell me and make a 9 year old boy (and his 30something Uncle) very happy!
