It’s a clear and crisp sunny Christmas morning in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
Breakfast has been leisurely enjoyed.
Presents given and unwrapped.
Laughter shared, stories and memories recaptured as we talked about Christmases past ---Like the time we completely CANCELLED Christmas because both boys, 6 years apart in age, attending completely different schools, both came home after being suspended from school on the SAME DAY.
It wasn’t funny then – but it is funny now! It’s all in perspective.
Last evening I finished getting the binding machine sewn to the Boxy stars quilt:
Purple Binding next to a yellow border.
Sewing on Petula, my 1967 Wizard!
I couldn't get the binding sewn on at home before coming up – the Hubster was too anxious to get up here – so I packed the walking foot into my travel bag and planned to finish it up here. I don’t have a walking foot for the slant shank 301 ---though it is on my bucket list!
It didn’t take long to get the binding sewn around the quilt – and the hand stitching began last night as we watched Christmas movies and relaxed. THE BEST!
Christmas Dinner is planned for later on ---but as a family tradition, we’ll be heading out to a movie matinee at noon! Just can’t break with tradition.
I’m sending wishes for a warm and wonderful Christmas wherever you are, whoever you are with, whatever you are doing ---may it be filled with love and happiness, togetherness and lots of quilty good cheer!
