So many cute projects. Congratulations for not feeling stressed trying to finish them all before Christmas.

OOOH I like this plan especially since the 1st three things I have on my list to do ARE Christmas things. Two tree skirts and long planned and not followed thru Christmas bed quilt. And some gingerbread people materials on on their way for me to convert to a button up hanger.

That will actually count for the race for 2013 already? I am in! I only had one of the 8 segments done on one tree skirt so can I count it? Any other rules?

Rules?!?!? - What rules?!?!? We don't need no stinkin' rules!! - haha. - ;))

Well - I guess there are some - lemme think -

You can work on stuff that you already started or start something new - doesn't matter - just gotta be something Christmasey.

It's a "Leisurely" Race - a Race in name only - so no speeding - no rushing - no pressure - if you don't finish it - you can enter it in next year's Race.

Post our progress throughout the year - as we go along - and be ahead of everyone else come December I label mine "Race" and title the posts "LTRTCWSA" (Leisurely Turtle Race To Christmas With Squirrels Allowed) - but that's just me - it's not a rule - ;))

I think that's about it - the whole point is to HAVE FUN and work on Christmas stuff so that come December we're not thinking - "Gee, if I had started this stuff sooner - it would be DONE by now." We ARE starting sooner - and we WILL be done by then -;))

By the way - your gingerbread people are in the mail - they said that you should get it by Monday - ;))
