36 days until Christmas!!!!

And I have been a bad blogger….oh well.

This past weekend was interesting. I was determined to learn how to sew and make pajamas for all of my little neicelings and nephewlings. And my mom was brave enough to attempt to teach me. I had this vision of the whole sewing process finally clicking in my brain. Like a magical light switch, I would become a "Grubbs". In other words, I would actually be able to sew, and sew well. All of the Grubbs women sew, and enjoy sewing. And while I am a Boyer…I've spent more time with the crafty Grubbs…and these crafty, "womanly" things should come naturally, right?

Not so much.

Mucho kudos to my wonderful mother, who never once lost her patience, even when I did and who encouraged me to the bitter end…well, the bitter end of the weekend at least. There's still lots more to be done. I'm practicing speaking positively…surely we can get it done!

On a more exciting note, this weekend is crazy jam packed. Starting with dinner with the girls…and Twilight, the movie!!! I am so stinkin' excited. Then a little slumber party…and scrappin' on Saturday. Then church and a road trip up to Dahlonega for my Aunt Paula and Patricia's birthday party. I'm going to try and remember my camera this time, so hopefully there will be photos to post.

And then…it's Thanksgiving week. Whew. I can't believe it!

  1. He, he! It's probably not as bad as you think, this whole sewing thing. It is your first run after all. It gets better when you feel like you know what you are doing.
