Do I write 24/7? No way. #crafting #writinglife #hobbies

Would it surprise you to know, I don't write all day, every day. I'm a 9:30 to 4:30 writer. I have tons of stuff to do around my house and have to squeeze it in-today is fix the washer day; tomorrow is a new plumber coming to fix the dripping pipes under my master sink; somewhere in there is the a/c man to figure out why there is weird programming on my Nest thermostat.

I have other things to do too, like reading!! And I'm embroidering on a needlepoint pillow and a 12 days of Christmas lap blanket. I adore watching a good movie and stitching. I like stitching so much, I'd stitch in church if I could.

So I thought I'd share what I completed last year:

From this seventies set, I have a huge wreath to do.

I embroidered tea towels for four girlfriends:
And stitched my first needlepoint Christmas ornaments:

However, there is the writing thing. LOL. I'm always busy with it. Find out more holiday and romantic comedy fun at: Amazon Central

May your days be Merry and Bright!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Love all the needle work stuff. I never could do any of that. I did crochet, but that's about it for handcrafts.

Wonderful crafts! You rocked them! I can't imagine not having time for other things in my life... teaching children and spending time with family is where I get my best writing ideas!

Merry Christmas!!

I did the pillows last year but didn't get to show them off. I tried crocheting, Kathy, but went back to needlepoint because I liked the projects I was doing.

I agree spending time with family and friends provides great fodder for stories. Merry Christmas, Melissa!

Hi, Karilyn! Grandmother started my embroidery love when I was nine. A few years ago, I saw a needlepoint stitch n zip on a clearance at Hoppy Lobby. I was with my mom and said, "I can do that." I did and took a few classes too. Merry Christmas!
