Christmas Eve!

Here’s poor Sadie Jane, wishing everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS---while in the process of being completely humiliated by Jeff putting blinking antlers on her head.  It’s worse than the “Cone of Shame” --- she couldn’t wait to get that thing off her head!

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 -----

Every family needs a Jeff to keep things lively and humorous. Thanks for the tip about the cookie sheet. I'll have to keep a look out for after Christmas sales. Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year to you and your family.

Hi Bonnie, I have those ruby slipper and yellow brick road fabrics in my collection also. I have another Wizard of Oz fabric with a blue background that is in my Orca Bay mystery. Sandi in NY

LOL! I was at the grocery store yesterday afternoon, too, with my husband. I'm not sure how it went from him saying, "I'll run to the store and get whatever we need" to my driving him there. How does that happen?!?!?!? The stores were a zoo and parking lots were worse. But we made it and I'm baking all day today. No after Christmas sales for me, either.

Merry Christmas to everyone - be safe!

Just a quick question Bonnie. I see that your HST's don't have any pointed ends. Do you trim the 2nd end right away or am I doing something wrong? Could you please explain your method sometime? I love the easy angle ruler but do struggle with the flopping of it. Merry Christmas. Looking forward to your 2012 blogs. Lori

Couldn't Jeff wear those antlers instead of poor Sadie? I think he would look cute in them!

Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year to you and your family.

I spent most of Friday shopping and was surprised that the afternoon traffic and shopping lines were so much worse than the evening. DH was going to do those errands for me, but ended up sick in bed. Perfect timing. : )

Beth said...

My little dog has a smaller version of those antlers. He is not happy when DD puts them on him.
Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas may Santa bring you more ways to use more fabric. Thanks for always sharing your wonderful ideas.
