Sounds like we all went overboard this year. I've filled a large flat rate box. I think our Secret Santa Sisters are going to have a great Christmas this year. 

21 days to shipping day! Can you believe it?!

Ok, this is the third time I've typed a message and then didn't add it!  Must be stress or something like it, can't be that age is finally creeping up on me.

We have been working furiously on harvest craft and bake sales for church.  Not a huge success, but made $550 - not bad for a small group of 5 crafters.  The bake sale went much better - we sold 50 pies and lots of breads and cookies and brownies.  Now I can start keeping up with my quilting again.  

SS box is mostly done - have to redo the pincushion.  DH let the dogs play with it - said it looked like one of their toys!  Now I have to run our for some tan felt for the crust.  Luckily I still have the blueberry fabric for the filling.  I will be baking the pet treats in early Dec so they will be fresh.  

Guess I will keep looking through the news feed to see what I've missed.

I have a few things left to do.  Not sure I will do November’s mission.  My foot doesn’t like me still.  Cast doesn’t come off til November 18th so limited sewing.  Definitely need a bigger box than medium flat rate.  At least I have a few more weeks to resolve it.

I have to much for the size box I have.

Comment by Riana Noyes on November 8, 2019 at 5:43pm

Colleen, Linda's advice is spot on! 

Comment by Linda Koller on November 8, 2019 at 1:19pm

Colleen, give yourself time to heal. Don't worry about the quilts that need to be finished. There's always next year. Right now you need lots and lots of rest. Sending prayers and hugs.

Mine doesn’t fit in a flat rate box either. I’m on the search for the perfect size box. The one I found is a bit too big. I will find that happy medium perfect box before mailing day. And maybe I will stop adding more before the last minute too.

im having a difficult time these days. This concussion I sustained has changed my life and I’m struggling to adapt. Frustrated, emotional, just barely getting things done. Luckily I did pretty much have my SS box all together before it happened. I have 3 Christmas quilts to finish and doubt if they will be done. Can’t seem to accomplish much when I’m trying

What I have will not fit into any flat rate boxes, I just will have to do as the items deem.  It is just what happened this time.
