I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. Christmas is almost here...again. And I find myself in the same spot I'm in every year.. not ready.
I bought myself my annual bottle of Bailey's. The Gift pack contained the bottle and 3 little flavored bottles to try. Since it turned out to be the same price, I bought the gift package. And the little bottles are so cute, I put a little eye screw in the top and put them on my tree.
I was watching Bells of St. Mary's on netflix this afternoon, and came across another movie quilt. I paused it and snapped a couple of pics.
I hope that you all are well, I almost have my teal and brown star quilt top put together. I had to cut cornerstones for the sashing to connect the rows, or it would already be done. That's what happens when you read the directions as you go along. I sewed at my friends house, and didn't know to cut cornerstones because I hadn't read ahead. But they are done now, so that is my next thing. I cut up a pair of old jeans today, and made ricebags out of the legs. Just a spur of the moment idea, which turned out well. I am making nametag holders out of the pockets. A friend did that and they were cute. I can't remember what they looked like, so I'm waiting to hear from her.
A busy week coming up. I'm expecting my daughter in from Alaska on Wednesday. It will be good to see her. She is back to stay, and it will be nice to have our family all here for Christmas. My son's girlfriend actually got him to take her to the Nutcracker Ballet today. It must be love....
