Now that Thanksgiving is over. . .

Well the week before Thanksgiving, James had double eye surgery.  The day before his surgery, I went to get him up for school, only to find that he had thrown up on his bed, the floor next to his bed, and his bedding.  I cleaned it up, and then called his school to let him know he wouldn't be coming that day.  Later when the hospital called to get all the early registration info, they said he should be fine if he didn't throw up the next morning.  So, he had his surgery, and it went well, but he still has to wear glasses.

Now, the result of him throwing up meant that I almost got behind on a custom order that I was in a rush to do.  That Monday I was going to go to JoAnn's and that obviously didn't happen.  Since James spent the rest of the week recovering, I didn't even make it out of the house until Saturday morning.   But, I managed to get the supplies I needed for the dress, and get all but the buttons and button holes done before leaving for Thanksgiving.  I got the dress finished right after we left.

The Saturday night before we left, I also managed to get most of a newborn ACU outift cut out as well (I'll post pics of that tomorrow), and a diaper cover embroidered.  My next task is to get a pocket diaper, and another diaper cover done.  Then onto a rather large order of an embroidered swingback dress with ruffles, instead of rick rack, and embroidery, with matching pants, diaper cover, dyed shirt, tights, and matching soft soled shoes.  I plan on starting on this Friday, and working heavily on it Saturday. 

Sunday will be spent working on Christmas presents.  I'm making placemats with matching napkins for my sister-in-law's, an apron for my borther-in-law, a messenger bag for my neice, . . . and I still haven't figured out what to get for my other brother-in-law, and my husbands parents.  My sister-in-law put in a request to Jake's mom for bamboo velour pillow cases, since she liked the ones I did last year, so I'm trying to decide whether to give them to my brother-in-law, or give them to her as a birthday present.  Either way, they go to the same house.
