It can’t possibly be Christmas Eve! Part of me is a bit bummed that this month has flown by so quickly! I’m headed to the Dallas area next FRIDAY – how can that be possible? And the other part of me is happily willing to relinquish 2011 to the archives and start 2012 with a brand sparkling new slate!
Karen, Lisa & I have plotted and planned to celebrate the passing of Christmas, and the survival of another Holiday season by getting together at Karen’s house on the 26th for a SEW DAY!!
I am so happy to be doing this…..this way my crazy family won’t drag me out in the “Day AFTER Christmas shopping mayhem”. It was bad enough that we had to go out YESTERDAY for a couple of last things --- I needed a few groceries for Christmas dinner, and to pick up a couple things for Jeff --- and----- who’s big idea was it to go out at 4:30 in the afternoon 2 days before Christmas? Never mind --- it’s done. And I’m not leaving the house for a while!
Instead of baking cookies….I’ve got piles of triangles cut and ready to sew. Cookie sheets can be handy in the sewing room, too, ya know?! These will most likely be going to Karen’s with me for the 26th Sew Day --- that is unless I get some time to sew them here first!
Oooooh! Do you see in the bottom left of the yellow section? RUBY RED SLIPPERS?! Those came home from Kansas with me ((How fitting!)) and just next to it is the Yellow Brick Road fabric! I found a quilt for them to go in! Yeah!
And you know what? There *IS* no place like home -----
