If you are like we are, and like my mom was, you will still be sewing on Christmas Eve. The best thing to do is to try and complete your projects and gifts before then. Save that night to spend with your loved ones. If time is an issue for you, consider getting someone to help or a group of friends together to help each other complete your projects. Older kids (aka teenagers) can also help if nothing else by entertaining the younger children so that you can work undisturbed (good luck with that). They can also be helpful when it comes to assembling things, baking and other projects. It can also help keep them from getting bored. Happy sewing and crafting.
