December?? Already??

It seems to happen to me every year. One day it's Halloween, and the next day it's December 1st. Where does November go??

So I didn't get much sewing done for myself since Halloween(a little on my coat...), and now it's time to switch into full gear for the Christmas gifts. I started a tradition with my girls that they would have new pjs every Christmas Eve. Last year, I made them nightgowns, and am planning to make nightgowns again this year. Unfortunately, they are going to be with their father on Christmas Eve this year (boo hoo). This is one of the worst times of year when you are separated, especially when your kids are young. They aren't going to be many more Christmas mornings with the excitement of Santa's visit... So, I'm not sure if I'll save the nightgowns for them to open on Christmas, or send them over to Daddy's to be opened Christmas Eve.

Lest we forget...

In Canadian tradition, the poppy is worn by many members of society during the two weeks prior to November 11.
