Christmas 2020 - For those in our fold like Pennifold, who are forging forward into stitching for December, I would like to offer a word of encouragement to the procrastinators and laggards in our group. I have just found the last never-wrapped Christmas gift for 2019. It was not a stitchout, but rather a purchased gift for one son. I know he'll be thrilled that the gift really does exist.

thank you for the laugh, but please let we have summer first. Bye the way sometimes I forget it too I already had a gift for someone and than make or buy found out later I already had something ....

Have a great summer!

Ha ha ha Betsey, I've done that many times. I now have a couple of shelves in my wardrobe filled with Christmas and birthday gifts, and that way I always have something on hand in case I've forgotten to buy a gift for one of the family. I hope your son loves his gift. Love Chris

Can't help but laugh this is me all over, I even misplace birthday gifts as I try to buy in advance.

I still have my star in the window. I thought about making a red heart with lights for Valentines day, a shamrock, a flag for the 4th of July etc... Lol! I have found gifts in the past that were never given. Now I keep them in the stock pile until wrapping time.

Can't help but laugh Betsey. Same thing happened to me once but took almost 9 months to accidently find it while looking for something else. Since I buy and make all during the year my daughter's suggestion was purchase a bin and put gifts only in it . It works for me. Keep the bin in bottom of a closet mostly used for storage only. Q

Lillian so glad to see you pop up! I have been concerned, which means deep in prayer. How are you feeling?

Took my angel tree down that I'd turned into a Valentine tree for the little I wish I hadn't! It could be an Easter tree!

I can not even think about stitching for Christmas. Trying to do my Income tax return. You made me laugh. Thanks
