Anyway, I am OK with being a little crazy and what you are about to read will only affirm my craziness (or perhaps compulsion for being organised). Over the past few months I have been collecting these encyclopedias each week. They are released each weekend with The Herald (I don't buy The Herald though!).
When I picked up the first copy and realised that a total of 24 were being published, I knew exactly what to do with them... These books will be an advent calendar this Christmas. I plan to wrap each book in brown paper and number them 1 - 24. Every day the boys will be able to open one book together, and that night we will read about the mysteries and information it contains.
It's been quite fun collecting these books each week! And I am loving how they are stacking together. I think they'll look quite sweet on their book case.
In other news, I've begun my Single Girl mission. 3 quilts. 2 twin sized. 1 queen sized. All need to be completed for Christmas.
The queen quilt is for my sister in law. She chose these prints last year for her quilt - very bright and cheerful. Much like her.
And... I've also managed to turn that pile of Strawberry Fields from this
...to this. This quilt is destined for my MIL for Christmas. Although I think I might find this one hard to part with.
loved this quilt. Any thoughts? Please share!
