Christmas Stocking in February

I’ve been getting quite a bit of projects that have been hanging around completed over the past several weeks; however, I do look forward to starting some new projects!  Last year I made Joey his very own stocking here, I even started my very own stocking right after his was complete in hopes we could have our very own stockings both up for this past Christmas…however, TWO people were expecting and their baby blankets were a wee bit more important at that point.

Christmas for a friend…

Christmas really sucked this year.  It wasn’t how I envisioned Christmas.  I really LOVE Christmas, but this year, this year has such sad undertones, I didn’t even put my tree up or any decorations for that matter.  It didn’t even feel like Christmas.  I watched the movies on Hallmark, played Christmas music and even wore an ugly sweater, but just couldn’t get in the Christmas spirit.  This year was to be when my family would be at MY house, but when grandma is placed in assisted living and we are her only family left, plans change.  When my husband’s mother spent Thanksgiving in the hospital and then later before Christmas announced she won’t be continuing her chemo treatment, plans change.  In my fit of selfishness, I volunteered to work at Holiday on Christmas day, because why not?  Christmas is going to suck anyways… We ended up having Christmas Even with my husband’s side of the family barely showing up, just long enough to get a quick photo and then everyone dispersed.  No special dinner, no exchanging of gifts, just hanging out…because as Joey’s dad said “Christmas is cancelled, why are you here?”
