Two of my three girls are Home For the Holiday…the third arrives tomorrow! It’s wonderful to have them home under one roof..although my youngest daughters is suffering with Asthma (she seems to be allergic to our newest dog, Rylie…). Rylie is a cockapoo…but seems to have more cocker spaniel than poodle in her…and she is a shedder…meaning she is a dog!! (Hayley is fine with poodles as their dander is different and they don’t shed)…So today we will work on getting that under control. Her bedroom is and always has been a dog free zone…
Here’s a picture of us walking the Nature Trails just before dinner. Love this park and it was a gorgeous sunny day!
My husband’s son and grand-daughters are coming for dinner tonight as they can’t make it on Christmas day. As I told them…we will take whatever we can get!! So let the eating begin…!
AND speaking of Home for the Holidays…my Buggy Barn loot arrived yesterday…my win from Buggy Barn’s Home for the Holidays give away!! Talk about bounty!! It was a box full of wonderful quilty stuff… now I’m not bragging or anything…BUT you have to see this to believe it…
Schnibbles…four of them!! DMC embroidery floss….
‘Stir Crazy’ by Buggy Barn and a book on how to make Shams and Pillows to go with the quilts that you make…both books are wonderful!!
A summer time quilt pattern called Summer Slices by Jillily Studio…so cute…love the little snowballs in the middle!
Some appliqué glue…and man did I ever need this…I am using a popsicle stick to get the glue out of my old bottle!!
A kit to make this super cute Snow Mama…very cute and..
..look at the fabric that came in the kit…LOVE Buggy Barn’s fabrics!!
And the sweetest Buggy Barn bag to carry all my quilty things in!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH, BUGGY BARN!! What an incredibly generous Give Away!! Why it felt like Christmas…!!
You can visit Buggy Barn’s new Blog right here..it’s call Continually Crazy!! They have lots of eye candy…just their Header alone makes me drool!!
Speaking of drooling…Sentimental Stitches released Block 15 for the Beyond the Cherry Tree Quilt …so if you are collecting this BOM now is the time to do it…while it’s FREE!! Gay is painstakingly reproducing the pattern from the original well worn quilt…see her blog for details. What a labour of love on her part!!.. and we THANK HER!!
“THANKS SO MUCH, GAY!!”
So onward Christmas…the baking is done, the house is as clean as it’s going to get, the presents are bought, wrapped and under the tree (which is decorated…just barely!), the turkey is thawing…and the food is ready for preparation….it’s NO wonder that by December 25 we are all exhausted!!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting (is there ANYONE out there sewing???) ~P
