Anticipation and Stress

Tis the season to be stressed out.  Work is hectic and trying to finish up gifts. Then the next thing you know it's over.  I think it's just going to be me and my honey for X-mas day.  My dad having dimentia won't really know what day it is.  And my mom is another whole ball of stress wax.  Anyway....

     I completed a project gift for an aunt.  African flowers table runner. All earth tones.


I received my swap gift from my partner in the Handmade Gift Exchange. Lovely holiday decorations. 


And to relax for the holidays, the classic drink of choice. Rum & Egg nog.  Cheers!

We are doing the same in my house.. Me and hun..My mum has the dementia so any change in routine is distressing for her...no holiday celebrating is best for her.

The African runner will be a great gift and well appreciated... I'll join you and the captain and some nog! cheers

I think my husband and I are spending Christmas home together, with the dogs. It will be a first for us. We're doing all our family visits over the weekend. Your runner looks gorgeous!

Ooo the runner turned out good! I have a pillow that's been on my "to make" list for almost two months! I think our nice quiet christmas will be the perfect time to get started on it. I'll also have to give rum and egg nog a try! My go to egg nog mix is coca cola but yours sounds like a good alternative!
