The Post Thanksgiving Let Down

I was wondering if any of you are feeling a little let down too? It's always the same, isn't it? A rush to get something done and then a little tiny let down. I'm kind of feeling it today. I did manage to get some laundry done. I watched the MSU game and I finished 3 blocks. It's now dinner time and that isn't a lot to have accomplished in an entire day now is it??

Want to see my blocks? One is the second reindeer block I am doing for our Christmas get together with the Plymouth Piecemakers. I really love how it came out although it is difficult to see them in this photo, they now have eyes.

I am doing the 12 Days of Christmas BOM and I got the stocking block(s) done today too. One for me and one for LTW

I have a baby quilt to finish, the one with the plus symbols all over it. Then I have all those cardinal wall hangings to finish too. I need to transfer designs to some towels for Christmas gifts. My ultimate goal is to finish up the machine stuff and get my sewing room put away. I know I keep saying that but I am a little closer right now. I had DS carry 2 bins down the basement (those things are HEAVY!!) Well, off I go to make a turkey sandwich and maybe work on one of those wall hangings!! Have a wonderful evening, I'm planning on it.

Oh how I can relate! I awoke yesterday just feeling down, so I found myself uba busy to lift my mood. I don't think it helped, but how I tried + oodles of prayers. Today is a different day, I feel blessed and happy. I hope you do, too.

After anything big I always come down with what I call a funk! Sometimes it takes me two or three days to pull myself out of it! I usually have to surround myself with what I love most my family!!
I absolutely love your blocks!

Hey... pop over and help me make this *Roman Emperor* costume for my son. Today he let me know about it, and it has to be ready for Wednesday! My post-turkey lull will have to wait.

Love the blocks! Have only crocheted on the Grandsons afghan a little this weekend. I need to get at it the Christmas present projects tomorrow. I got some Christmas shopping done yesterday and went out and got a little more done today. I have been working on putting up the Christmas decor this afternoon. I am in the middle of putting the lights on the big tree but taking a break. Hubs does not do Christmas decor so I am on my own. We live back in the woods so we do not bother with any outside decor. Sometimes I get a wreath put out on the door. I do not think I am long at this job today though because my feet are starting to swell and hurt, time to put them up.

Not a letdown after Thanksgiving. I am so thankful the cooking/eating is over and I won't have to cook for a few days, and usually have 4 days off for sewing.

Love the blocks. 8-))

Those reindeer can cheer me up Pam! Cute! And I've got my BOM's cut out but not put together. I've been distracted today.

Nope, no letdown here - after Christmas, when I contemplate how much of winter is still to come, but not for this holiday. Maybe because there is still Christmas to look forward to.
Love your blocks!

Yep I get the same let down feeling, usually when I'm doing the dishes from the big meal. All that work for 1/2 hour of eating and then it's done.

I love the look on the reindeer faces...too cute!!
