Changing Horses Midsream

Last night I posted that I will record my podcast tonight. And today my voice is nearly back to normal, so I could do that.

BUT, wouldn't you like two really super Christmas projects that you can make as last-minute gifts (instead of two just OK projects)? I thought so! I woke up in the middle of the night last night and thought of a really great, seasonal paper project, and this morning I had yet another brainstorm for a fiber arts project. I need to create both projects from scratch, take photos, and write the project sheets. That will take me all day today.

So chances are I won't publish my podcast until tomorrow night, so please be patient! I guarantee it'll be worth the wait. I'm so excited about the fiber arts project, and I'm pretty sure you'll have the supplies in your sewing/craft room to make it as a last-minute gift.

A few minutes ago my son's oldest cat, Midi (short for "A Midsummer Night's Dream") was posing prettily on the piano, and I just had to take her photo. Here she is. (Note to self: Dust the piano!)

This weekend we will get our Christmas tree (usually a Fraser fir or a concolor) and put it in its stand in front of the living room picture window. (We don't decorate the tree until Christmas Eve.) This year we have a new kitty, Titus Andronicus, who is overly inquisitive -- I think we'll have to attach the tree to a hook in the ceiling, because I'm quite certain that Titus will be climbing it as soon as it's up, and we don't want a Christmas Tree Disaster!

Again, thanks for your patience! And, as Darla from Scientific Quilter reminded me, It's not a race, it's an adventure! LOL!

  1. Actually that was Brye, but it was on my post. But I agree that you don't have to strain yourself just because of what everyone else is doing. Deadlines are meant to inspire, not intimidate.
