Soon it will be Christmas and I am almost ready.
Soon my beautiful Amaryllis will fully unfurl her beautiful petals.
Soon I will finish making these coasters/trivets. I am not loving this crochet ruffle edge. I think I may have to take it all off.
They are not for presents, they are just because I got a whim to cut up my felted disaster Lucy bag that I made a while back.
I think this looks better, don't you?
Soon I will show you a wonderful present from my friend Teresa. I am waiting just in case this is also a surprise for other blog friends. Teresa has been about the best blogging friend in the world. I cherish our friendship (and I want to go live her and her husband on their farm!) Please Teresa, won't you let me? I'll start packing right now.
Soon I will also show you this wonderful Christmas surprise from Betsy. She maybe presenting these to lovely ladies attending a lunch at Teresa's house next week. I won't let out her secret, but I will thank her from the bottom of my heart for her kindness and generous nature. Betsy is an Angel to so many people in her life. She is the most giving knitter I know, please pop in an visit her because you will sure be glad you did.
Soon this shawl will be finished. I am on the ruffle and I have so many stitches on my circular needle it takes me 50 minutes to knit a row! That is correct 5-0! I am not a super fast knitter but I am no slug either. The funny thing is since I am making this pattern up I have no one to blame but myself for this ruffle mess. When it is done I hope to wrap myself in lovely alpaca softness.
Soon I will be getting in my car and driving across the state to pick up my son and his friend from their swim team training trip. I have a five hour drive there, and a five hour drive back. But soon my son will be in my car, and I can gaze at his beautiful face as he sleeps away the exhaustion of his week, right next to me.
Soon my family will be together. I am happiest when we are all home, sleeping in our beds. It feels complete, like this is the way we should be. I miss my son who is so far away from me in Ohio. Yes I know he is supposed to be there, but as his Mom part of my heart is always missing when he is not home.
Soon we will have Christmas. I have wrapped presents like a crazy woman this week. I have all my paperwork for work completed early so it does not interfere with my Holiday time. Soon we will decorate the tree, we have been waiting for Mr. 20 year old to get home. Soon we will be together as a family and I can finally breathe a big deep breath, because this is now it is supposed to be.
