I can’t begin to tell you all how much I’ve been looking forward to this weekend … with so much on the calendar this month, I’m ecstatic to have a couple of days with nothing planned … beyond ecstatic even, since you know that means time spent with needle and thread.
I’m continuing to stitch away on DH’s quilt. It’s slow going … thankfully I’ve chosen a simple quilting pattern (straight lines down the center of each “log”), but even so it’s been a long time since I had a big chunk of time to be able to quilt … little bits here and there do add up … albeit so very slowly. I am almost done with block #15 (out of 63). I won’t get it done before I start working on T#3’s quilt (after the first of the year), but it will be waiting for me. I took this photo last night when I moved the hoop … I realize that other than the change in the placement of the hoop, you really don’t see much of a difference in this picture from the one I posted a few days ago. Such is the nature of the beast when quilting something like a log cabin. I plan to quilt while watching some Christmas movies this afternoon … White Christmas is at the top of the list -
Snow … I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow
Snow … I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow
Snow … Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow
Speaking of snow, today is the first day of winter … although we’ve been having wintery weather for over a month now.
We have rain/snow in the forecast for Christmas Eve (hoping for snow but expecting rain) … but alas, it would not matter as the forecast high for Christmas Day is a balmy 50.
I blogged last month about our “issues” with our printer … it would constantly drop the wifi connection, requiring us to reboot the modem in order for the printer to reconnect – every. single. time. we needed to print something. We finally bit the bullet and purchased a new printer Thursday evening. So far so good.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
