Panic attack

averted.....thankfully :)

I had decided that this weekend would be spend cutting out fabric and getting my Christmas sewing ready for the long Thanksgiving weekend.  I do pillow cases for family and friends.  I've been doing them for about 6 or 7 years now.  Two years ago I just didn't get to them, there was so much going on in my personal life that I just didn't have the energy.  I figured people would probably be happy that they didn't get yet another pillowcase from me.  I can't tell you how many people were disappointed that they didn't a pillowcase!!  I was overwhelmed with the number of people who expressed how much they loved them.  Mostly family, so I'm sure they didn't want to hurt my feelings LOL

So last year I got back on the horse and made more, and will do the same this year.  Only this year I'm going to supplement them with micro-wave pot holders and hopefully some place mats.

So what was my panic attack?  Well I decided that because I can't stand for long periods of time, that in-between cutting session I would try doing a little beading on my August Peridot fairy.  She has been lingering for such a long time with no loving at all.

So when I went into our guest/craft room and the beads were missing!!  I have all the thread and beads in little baggies that are on an O ring that I keep on the knob of the floor stand....well it wasn't there!!  OMG to be so close and to lose my heart skipped a beat or 5.  Until I realized I had put them on the book shelve because the cat kept knocking them down.

So panic attack averted!!  She is really so close to being done, I really need to get work on her and just get it done.

Happy stitching
