.Cutting it close.

I have always wanted to make a lovely advent calendar for Christmas.  With a whole year to think about it, do you think I could have started it in July and been organised for this year?!!

Not to worry, I have just over 24 hours until the 1st Decmeber and have finished all of my cutting, ready to start sewing in a couple of minutes when Tommy goes down for a (hopefully) long nap!

I did make an advent calendar last year out of scrapbook paper.  It was cute, but not what I want to use forever.  

Okay, no time to waste!  I'm off to sew and plan our family activities for the 2010 Family Christmas Countdown!!  Will share my advent calendar and list of activities when I am done (hopefully before 1st December!!)

Aaargh another who planned to have one done - looks like you will get there Toni - I now have to decide whether to wait another year or bite the bullet and have it start a few days late....
