I'm pretty certain I will get the last two items completed by Christmas, the other two? Not so much. I guess all my plans and intentions for "the Spirit of Christmas Present" got put on standby. I have been spending extra time with my dog, Molly, who just celebrated her 10th birthday on December 4th.
Miss Molly has been my faithful companion - the little friend who sticks by my side no matter what kind of day I'm having. She has spent countless hours in my sewing room with me learning all about sewing, machine embroidery, smocking and more. Miss Molly is very, very sick. This past week, we found out that she has Lymphoma and probably won't live much beyond Christmas Day. It's very sad to say the least. We have her on steroids, cheeseburgers and all the treats she wants and I'm giving her all the extra attention she needs while she's still with us...I'll have plenty of time to finish all those unfinished projects later.
So I am hoping that there are some out there who have been able to finish up their Christmas Projects for this year and I'd LOVE to see them! There might even be a few people out there who, like me, had good plans and intentions that suddenly went amiss. I'd still love to see what you at least got started and hope to finish by Christmas. I really enjoyed blog hopping last Monday, so please join in the fun! It's your turn to share the Spirit of Christmas Present on my Monday Memories Linky Party!
Here’s how it works:
1. Scroll down to the bottom of this post until you see the “add your link” button. Click that, and create a descriptive name for your link. This will make it easier for folks to browse through all the links.
2. Make sure to link to your specific Monday Memories post, not the main page of your blog.
3. Make sure your blog post includes something handmade from a Christmas Present.
And I created a fun, little badge especially for the party, so feel free to post the code in the box below at the bottom of your Handmade Monday Memories post on your blog if you’d like…
