I'm a list maker...

I make lists. When I feel overwhelmed, when I have a lot of little things to remember, when I have lots of gifts to make and send and when I can't get straight who wants what size photo, I make a list :)  I've been able to cross a LOT of Christmas sewing off my list this week!!
I finished 36 bean bags...
5 pillow cases...
And 20 sea horses...
Whew! Since I finished all of that, I get to finish up my Christmas quilt! I pinned it yesterday, but I'm not sure how I want to quilt it. I don't really like the line-marking process, so I'm thinking about free-motioning it--plus, I could use the practice :) We'll see.

Casey requires a Christmas list from me every year. It makes it easier for him and I do not mind because I have mad listing-making skillz. ;) This is at the top of my list this year!!!!
My OWN tools! I have had a tool set on my Christmas list since we lived in Georgia, so at least 7 years. I have never gotten one. Last week, I was hanging pictures, using the end of a screwdriver to pound in the nails, because I couldn't find any of the three hammers we own. ERG! After that, I told Casey this tool set moved to the top of my list. AND, they MUST be pink!!! Don't go buy me regular brown tools and call it "your own toolset" because I want everyone to know these tools are MINE!!! (I love you :)

Let's see, what other lists?? Right, playlists :)
This song just got added to my Christmas playlist on iTunes:

The 12 Days of Christmas may be my kids' favorite Christmas song. We also own these versions...

We also have this book and we highly recommend it :)
