~A Busy Week~


Madeline Rae VanVleet

I've been working on Santa orders this week. I've made progress but do have quite a ways to go. Time is slipping by so fast and of course when you work in your home there are many distractions but I'm trying my best to keep my concentration on the task at hand. I have a couple of more orders (smaller ones) to complete after the Santas but I'm going to try to get Mr. Jingles finished for Ebay sometime in the next week or so.

I've been enjoying the new Christmas issues of my magazines in the evening when I have a bit of free time. I particularly loved the December issue of Early American Life. I want to order the holiday issue of FOLK, this is a newer magazine that I've not seen yet but I have heard it's a really good one.

My weekend will be spent sewing but Sunday I plan to attend my great-niece's baptismal. Madeline just turned two months old on the 16th and she is absolutely adorable! The picture was taken shortly after her bath, her hair curls when it's damp. She's very quickly stolen my heart and I can't wait to see her on Sunday. My niece, her husband and Madeline live several hours away so I don't get to see them as much as I like.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend, talk to you next week.

Madeline is an absolute doll!! My son's (unfortunately "former") girlfriend's name is Madeline Rae....she's our friends' daughter and is still close to our family. She - as your Madeline - is beautiful....Have fun at the baptism and safe travels (and good luck with those Santas!) Enjoy your weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hi Robin.
The weekend was good and Madeline was beautiful in her long, white, embroidered gown. She was a very good girl and had lots of adoring family and friends in attendence.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, don't eat too much!

I also wanted to thank you for being such a good blogger friend, I appreciate the visits and the comments.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Diane
