Christmas Stocking Panic!


In the video, I say that I work on the stocking about 3 - 4 hours a day. When do I find the time?


Well. I stay up pretty late! My husband writes a daily newsletter, and is generally up until 11:00 or 12:00 each evening. So, if I start working on the stocking at 8:00 or 9:00 after dinner and dishes, then I can get in 3 - 4 hours...but by the end I'm feeling a little bleary eyed.


If I work on the stocking in the morning (rare) I can tell that being fresher helps me to move more quickly through the process.


But my days are absolutely full with grandchildren, and taking care of my daughters and my home -- and so I'm not able to work on it during daylight hours!


It will happen. And nothing is urgent. Except taking care of my family. So the stockings will get done - it's just a matter of time. I'll keep you updated on my progress!

P.S. Oh my god. My hair in this post. Too long. Too much. Too poofy! Post Covid hair has been difficult. It's not that I can't get it cut -- but I can't seem to get appointments! Also though...not urgent. Everything in time!
