Holidays

Not too much is going on at the moment, all is peaceful and quiet.   Spent Christmas Eve with my kids and then Christmas Day was brunch with my cousin and then dinner with friends.........everything was just wonderful.  The remainder of the weekend is just a lazy recouperation.  Sadly I forgot to take my camera to my sons on Christmas Eve so there are no photos!!!  There are lots of video's but no "pics"...oh well.  Time to do some domestic chores and then relax with some movies and more projects that need to be completed.  Hunter's quilt is on the slate for todays hand work.  I hear snow is coming so it will be ther perfect day to be inside!!!

Monday

It's late, I am pooped and ready for bed!!  I finally got the borders on Hunter's quilt and it is in the lap hoop for quilting so no photo until it is out of the hoop.  Then on to wrapping presents.  Sitting on the floor for the past 2 hours wrapping is sooooooooooo hard on the behind, even with all the padding I have!!!  The more I wrap the more I get the feeling I am forgetting someone............oh wait...........was it me??  Heavens no.  I bought my usual present(s) for myself :-)  An MP3 player that I will need to figure out how to load music into as I get SO tired of nothing on the radio that I like and my freebie Sirus timeframe is up, new jammies and season 4 of Sex and the City.

Mafia Snowman


My stick snowman is DONE and has been delivered to the lucky recepient, my friend in Cinci.  I call him the Mafia Snowman, he looks like a drunk hit man, or perhaps I had too much wine while putting his face together :-)  She loved him though and I guess that's all that matters.

One project down


This is a snowman wall hanging I completed last week.  Today the label will go on as well as the hanging sleeve.  It is a gift so it will go into a bag to go to it's new owner.  My lovely brother said it looks like a robot...............that's just WRONG :-)

Quilters Christmas Poem

Finished some quilted Christmas gifts this weekend and have one minor thing left to do on another.  Will post photos later as I needed to wait for daylight for better lighting.  I think I am quilted out for the weekend.  I think I will stop for hot cocoa to drink on the drive to visit kids.  then later, domestic goddess needs to appear to do laundry etc....after that I think it will be movie night and working on a Christmas cross stitch pattern I put up several years ago when I was having vision issues.  Forgot where I put the project and recently found it.  Will post pics of that too, maybe.

I read this on line by another quilter and thought it was SO cute and fitting :

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be fat quarters or a pattern or lace?
Or a quilt kit, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him,
"Hi Santa," I said
"You know....good little girls should be in their beds ".
"I know I should Santa, and now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly, And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
"You've got enough stuff, I'll see you next year!"

ps I better clean my quilting room before he checks mine!

Saturday

Just putting around the homestead today, no major plans which is kind of nice for a change.  A day at home is good for the soul!!  I worked on some Christmas projects.  Once the paint is dry I may post some pics.  I am pleased with my work...yeah.
I did figure out that I hung my lights up outside backwards, which is the reason they will not light as there is NOTHING to plug into.  Not sure if I will take them down and restart or just take them down and forget it for this year.  Depends on if it is too cold tomorrow to deal with it.
