Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, which is fearlessly led by Angelica (Gardening in High Heels) and myself. We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!

This week’s themes: Stitching, Cutting, Dodging, Embellishing, Approaching.

Stitching. Up some holiday clothes for Louis and me.  And eventually Bennett will get one too.  I have all of this gorgeous Christmas-style fabric and only one week left to wear it.  I’d better get the move on!

Cutting. It close with a pattern I’d like to have out in early January.  I finally digitized a hat that I used to make and sell.  And now I just need to write the tutorial and take a million step-by-step photos so I can put it out there into the universe.  I’m hoping people like it!  For sure it is a labor of love to get it into pattern form.

Dodging. Work. Rather, wishing I were dodging work.  I still have Christmas gifts for my nieces and nephews that I need to start/finish and get out the door so it makes it in time for Christmas.  I had great intentions this year, like I do every year, and somehow still am totally working up until last minute.  BAH.

Embellishing. Some gifts for my girls today.  We are having a “Favorite Things” Christmas party, where we all bring 8 of 1 item and pass them out to everyone there.  We will all walk home with 8 new things that are each other’s favorites.  I’m super excited to see what they’re all bringing!  This is going to be super fun!

Approaching. Christmas and 2018 rapidly.  I recently made a decision about my career that did not come lightly.  So now I need to prove to myself that I made the right one.  I need to set new goals, and smash every single one of those goals.  I’m coming for you 2018!
