Hi everybody:)

The Christmas season is here for sure! They are playing Christmas music in the stores and everybody has the decorations and foods out. We are not exchanging gifts this year so I have no pressures:) Have nothing made anyway:) Just been way too busy quilting!

Take this week... I was home all but 1 day so got a lot done:) This coming week I will only be home 2 1/2 days so not much will get done:( I will probably be working on the same quilt all week so do not despair if there is no blog post next week. We are going out of town for a few days also:) A nice Bday getaway for hubby:)
