Hi everyone, glad you could visit me.

I hope everyone had a very nice Christmas. We had a great Christmas. It went by really fast as usual. I had my Christmas dinner for nineteen on Christmas eve. My best friend from Ontario was home and was able to join us. Her mother and sister and family joined us also. So many laughs. It was a great night. I always
look forward to her gift of a snowbabies. This year was  called Heavenly Chorus. So very pretty.

I am getting quiet a collection. She thinks they should end. I suppose she is right. But I do enjoy them.  Here is my collection.

So hard to get a good picture. 

Boxing day and the pot of turkey soup is on. My husband has the flue so has been in bed most of the day so I headed back to the sewing room. We are also babysitting our sons black lab, Jake. We went out for a nice walk and also went for a nice walk with a friend. The weather has been so nice this Christmas. Looks like it might change tomorrow. Not sure what we are getting but it is that time of year. 

I was not sure what to work on so decided before Christmas to dig into my boxes of scrapes and an old telephone book. 

Also these pieces that are left over from other projects and also 6 meters of black. I wonder what it will be. 
This is a great project to work on without really having to think. I have a few blocks done and it is going to be very pretty. 

Looking forward to 2016 and all the new challenges out there.

Merry Christmas evryone.

I have a whole week left before Christmas and probably this is the first time since I have been married that I have all my gifts done, wrapped and sitting here wondering what I should do. A whole week that I can do anything I want.  I wonder what I should work on.

Here is the last gift I had to make. A runner from Connecting Threads for my mother. She should like this.

So pretty.

We now have snow on the ground so it is starting to look a lot like Christmas. My friend Marjorie was up for a visit and had a hard time getting out of my driveway. It is that time of the year.

My granddughter  Sara will be coming Monday night and will stay until Christmas day. We will have so much fun baking
Christmas cookies, pies, cheesecake and our Christmas dinner for Christmas Eve. I am hoping that my other granddaughter Lauren will be able to join us in the preparation.  They helped me last year and it sure made Christmas.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas  from my home to yours.

So very pleased to have these finished. I love the Shepard Bush patterns. They make such a nice size Christmas sock. These are for my son's family who lost their home over a year ago. I hope they like them. 

I just have one more Christmas gift to finish and I just have to machine quilt it. Then I need to do some wrapping.  It's hard to believe that in two weeks Christmas will be over  with.

I also made eight dozen peanut butter balls today and made a batch of almond bark. A good start on my Christmas cooking.  

Our Christmas concert at our church was tonight. It went very well. The kids love saying their pieces and exchanging gifts.

Christmas Post Card

I received a beautiful Christmas post card from a very talented lady in Australia.  Thank you Maria. I learned so much from yours. The one I sent you was my first card. I will do better next year.

Here is my card from Maria.

It looks so pretty in my tree. I won't post the one I sent incase Maria hasn't received hers yet. 
Is everyone almost ready for Christmas. Almost done here. Just a few things to finish up. Tomorrow a group of us ladies will be meeting for a day of sewing. I have two projects to take with me. I hope to finished them and there will be three more gifts done. I always seem to sew right up to Christmas. But that is the fun of it.
