So to the memory part, in my mind's eye, as I was assembling and listing my WIP's for 2012, I am remembering I have all but finished the stitching for my Petite Sampling Etui....so sure was I that I never took it out of the storage case I had it in.......maybe it was the fact that it was a BAP that I felt I was 198% complete........well, here is where the memory kind of fails.
Here's some of my brood taking naps. Even Troy, the puppy. Yes, the girls all got matching pj's. Santa spirited these under the tree magically on Christmas Eve.
The family being here was great and everyone helped with food prep and meals and dishes but I did feel like I was stationed at the kitchen sink forever. It was so nice to enjoy each others company and sleeping arrangements were a challenge since one bedroom is now a craftroom and another bedroom is now a walk-in closet. We had a dormatory set up with cots, double futon and Aero beds. But again the memory failed......at the amount of toilet paper a full house needs! Not that there was ever a doubt I would run out, but I did hear more than once, "we're out of TP upstairs"..... family, got to love them!
