Halloween for Christmas?

I have been feeling under the weather lately.  Miss V is teething and Miss E is as energetic as ever and while being pulled into opposite directions by them I am wishing I could stay in bed all day long!  Hahahaha, unfortunately that isn't an option.  Even the Mr. has commented that I haven't been in my studio all week (I think he's noticed the obvious cut into his Video Game playing time!).

Maybe it is the change in weather, change of time, or just a mood swing.  But, this chica hasn't been sewing.  Very disappointing if I do say so myself.

On the other hand it has given me time to think up a long list of to do's.  Many of these have to do with Christmas.  So, I thought I'd record them and link up with Janine's Making Christmas for the week!  I hope she doesn't mind that I am doing it a bit late...

2012 Calendar
Every year the Mr. and I make a calendar featuring the girls for our closest family members.  I am thinking I should start going through these photos and designing the calendar sooner than later.  Here are a few of the contenders for October!

Miss V was a Lion and Miss E was Tinkerbell for Halloween this year.  Tinkerbell was even allowed to wear glittery eyeshadow and blush - very exciting...  It was their first time actually trick or treating. Miss E was thrilled and kept saying the next day "we went for a walk...in the DARK!"  Hahahaha, hilarious!

Looking through the loot

I've decided not to do the QAL after all.  I am just not prepared for paper piecing all the blocks...although there are quite a few of them that I think are very clever.  It is just not my style for a Christmas quilt.   Maybe someday I'll go back and do a few of the blocks amidst simpler ones.  For this year I'm just sticking to modern table runners.  I hope to start cutting fabric and working on that soon.  Ha, maybe tonight?

I hope you are all feeling well and haven't let the shift into cold weather get you down.  I'll be making the WIP Wednesday rounds to see what you've all been up to!

Sorry you aren't feeling well, Becca. Hope you get back in gear soon! I think our bodies take revenge on us for subjecting them to weather changes! The photos of your girls are so sweet.

The cuteness!!! Could your daughters eyelashes get any longer? Adorable. Don't blame you a bit for the QAL. Have fun with the runners, though! Can't wait to see them! Hope you get a bit more energy soon!

Rebecca - I hope you feel better soon. Miss E and Miss V are so adorable! :) I had to laugh when you mentioned that Mr. noticed the obvious cut into his video game playing time.
