    I can't believe I am up and still working on the last of the Christmas gifts. It is 3:52am. I actually went to bed but woke up 2:30 only because I wanted these things done, they are for my DM so they have to be done. I'm making table toppers and coasters. What are you trying to get finished?

    Merry Christmas Carrie, Hope you got everything finished. I got up very early, couldn't sleep. It is a white Christmas here. Hope you and your family enjoy the holiday.

    Good Morning. It is 4:13 Christmas morning and I have been awake for 2 hours. Thought I would check in to see if anyone else was awake. Merry Christmas to everyone!!

    I have been up all night. I am just upset about the little things that I alone worry about. I couldn't sleep so I cross-stitched some and just sat around most of the night. We have some snow but just a good dusting. I hope you get it all done.

    I finally got it all done about 5:30. Then I went and laid down for an hour now it's time to get up and get the day started. Donna I hope your day goes better. Merry Christmas!

    I helped my dil finish a queen sized quilt for her parents last night! Our fingers are sore, this is her first project hand quilting, and she did awesome! It took a lot of time, and getting it done was a gift for me! LOL

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't sleep. DH goes to bed so early (he has to get up pretty early and being an essential public employee has to work today) and I usually stay up until I can no longer see what I'm sewing (or reading on here lol). I think I could stay up all night just puttering around. Am I nuts or is it just age (61) that I don't want to sleep? My mother was like that and perhaps it's just hereditary.

    Merry Christmas to all and hopefully you can get some rest today Carrie.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to you.

    A professor in the college where I worked was born on Christmas day, also. His mama named him Happy Christmas ____. They call him Hap.

    Happy Birthday, Carrie and in the almost the same sentence Merry Christmas.

    Hopefully, you will have enough sleep to enjoy your day.

    This a.m. just playing around with the DP 4 block & scraps.

    I did get a little nap in, that was until little man realized I dozed off. My Mom loved the toppers and the coasters that I was working on.

    I can relate so well! So nice to know I am not the only one:-) I finished my last stitch about an hour before my family arrived for dinner Christmas Eve and afterward had gift opening. No matter how early I start, I seem to always be down to the wire trying to finish my sewing, fit in one more thing for someone. I guess that is a side effect of our love of sewing:-)
