This is a tough time of year for me in terms of blogging. I mostly like to share photographs of my progress and projects, but this time of year I’m spending every free second frantically trying to get projects done (and not very many free seconds blogging). On top of that, I’m currently working on two secret projects and three Christmas gifts, so there’s not a whole lot I can really share in full. I’m considering taking an official “Christmas vacation” from my blog, but also don’t want to miss all of you too much.
For now, I decided to take some crazy close-up photographs of some of my works in progress to share with you in an aura of mystery. Here are some of the things I’ve been working on. Go ahead and guess what they are, if you want! It reminds me of the backs of Ranger Rick magazines I read as a child, where they had a grid of super macro photographs of everyday objects and you had to guess the object. Have fun!
I also have to include this process shot, completely unedited. This was my first time using my new Massdropped pink clover clips, and this one glows in the dying light. I think it’s such a cool photo!
If you’re a quilter-blogger who also has a lot of holiday and family obligations this time of year, what do you do to ease your stress levels? Take a break from blogging? Let go of obligations or personal expectations? I’d love to know!

I think one of them is a wide mouth bag, and the other is possible a divided basket? This time of year, I tend to let go of blogging a little, and let go of the diet a lot! 😀 Everything is stressful enough without having to add guilt over ordering pizza instead of salad. Eggnog helps too. 🙂 (And I mean the adult version)
I have to let go of personal expectations, to be honest. This might seem like it is out of left field, but have you ever read “The Four Agreements?” I tend to re-read it around this time of year, and it helps, too.
I would love the link to that “Four Agreements” post!
All those little sneaky peeks… can’t wait to see the whole thing. 🙂 This will be my first holidays blogging so I can’t really tell. But I also let go of many projects because of my arm this year so I’m a bit freer than I had thought I would be. I ended up knitting a lot more (hurts my arm less). But if you need a break, take a break… this blog shouldn’t be a stress an we’ll all be here when you come back!
