My Christmas List Is Getting Shorter

Today I had to go in to town to do my weekly shopping! It was so cold and the boys didn't have school again today. Mom rode with us and I dropped her off to have lunch with a couple of her friends.

After arriving back home and putting away all of my things I embroidered a couple more fleece throws for Christmas. If I get all of these done before the Christmas Season, then maybe I won't be so stressed out at Christmas.

This first one is for my SIL. She loves anything Disney, so I thought this one would be perfect for her.

This one is for my MIL. Now I messed this one up a little bit. I forgot to position my frame up a little bit more to do the name. So now the "S" is right on the edge of the flower. I may end up redoing this one, I don't know yet.

I still have several more to go, but they are quick and easy to do. I found these fleece throws at Walmart on clearance for $3, so I really don't have that much invested in these gifts. That is my favorite part of it.

Probably won't get anymore sewing done tonight. I rented the movie "Scarlet" and I have been watching it. Last weekend I rented "Gone With The Wind" and this is the sequel to it. Richard is already in the bed, since he has to get up at midnight and go in to work for a few hours.

You sure are having a great time with your new machine. All of your work is so pretty. I don't think you need to redo the one.
So curious minds want to know has Donkey come out of hiding yet?

Your gifts are looking so nice. I can't believe that you are getting so much done so soon. I don't think you need to redo this one. It looks good to me.
