Sketch 114

Mojo Monday - and here's what I came up with.  I'm really feeling under the gun these days...........Christmas is fast approaching as it does every year.  It just seems to sneak up and bite me in the butt.  Family is coming home this year and baking, cleaning and decorating all has to be done.....plus we have 2 birthdays in the merry month of December!

After expecting to spend a weekend taking technique classes - they were cancelled a couple of days beforehand by the H1N1 virus.  The instructor was hospitalized and we had the option to have a postponed class in the spring. I just hope Christine gets out of the hospital with a clean bill of health.

Even though disappointment was running amuck - I was rather relieved that I didn't have to go anywhere this last weekend - I finished 2 advent calendars, which wasn't an easy feat for me because my sewing machine bit the dust.....right in the middle of appliquing tiny stockings around a Christmas tree.  My wonderful, faithful Elna, which I paid an arm and a leg for about 30 years ago - just quit.  I remember paying more for that machine than I did for my car (which was only 2 years old).......  it is now in the SM hospital and I'm hoping that they can revive it, although the serviceman had the attitude that anything that old - just needs replacing...........  oh what a throw-a-way world we live in!

Have a great week everyone - take time to stamp and play with ink.
