Two more nights...

Wow!  Christmas is almost here.  This month has really slipped by me.  I haven't been in a festive mood - more in a hide out in my bed frame of mind.  But I think I'm finally turning the corner, and just in time for Christmas.

My quilt bee celebrated Christmas with each other last Wednesday.  Everyone brought a dish and a present.  There was so much food and Carla was a wonderful hostess.  As for our presents, I think everyone put a lot of thought into them.  I loved mine!  Hilary gave me 3 half yards of Laurel Burch fabric and a beautiful crosstitch of an angel that she did.  Hilary really does the most gorgeous crosstitching and I'm lucky to have a piece.

Carla was also very sweet and gave each of us some personalized gifts.  I put the note box right next to my sewing machine because I'm always looking for something to right down measurements on.  Thank you Carla!

With Christmas Eve only hours away, I wish I could say I was finished with my Christmas gifts.  My neck, jaw and head have been giving me such a fit for the last week or so that I've been unable to quilt.  I have two quilts tops that are made, just not quilted.  And that's how they're going to have to remain until after Christmas.  They're both for members of my family and they're very understanding.

I was able to do a little straightening in my sewing room over the last couple of days.  Jan gave me some thread racks over a year ago and I finally got around to putting them up.

Doesn't this look very clean and organized?  We'll  see how long it stays that way.  Until next time...
