Phew!!


Since my last post (the one where I said I would announce the little quilt give away winner) I was slammed at work trying to get ready to be off for two weeks, slammed by the realization that on December 20 I had not begun to get ready for Christmas and slammed by Christmas cooking, wrapping and reveling. Now, I am done...phew!

Without further delay, I congratulate Jen from The Quilty Home blog who the random number generator selected as winner of the little quilt giveaway.

Above is a little of my Christmas decorating. Frankly, the little tree on the table was almost our family tree this year. Since I was so late in starting the preparation the tree lots had closed up shop. Luckily, Whole Foods still had trees on December 24 so we got a big one after all.


This is a close up photo of my Christmas gift to myself. A couple of red and green quilts. I thought I'd take a chance and pull out some of my antiques to use in decorating. Might as well enjoy them.
