I haven't done anything yet, but a lot of my friends are already decking the halls. I saw that Jeanne has her beautiful Christmas quilts out in her bedroom.
I thought it would be nice if everyone could post a picture as they get decorated this year. I'm thinking that might motivate me! :)
I've been doing work stuff all day at home. A little quilting later if there's time.
I did get the binding finished on Don's quilt. I have two more that I want to bind next week, but if I just get my niece's done, I will be happy. My finger is so sore. It wasn't until I had almost bloodied it that I realized I didn't have my thimble on. Pushing that needle through batiks is tough. You'd a-thunk at this ripe old age I would have learned a thing or two. But Daisy Dog was really happy that I sat next to her on the sofa all day yesterday!
Next week I also plan on getting all my Christmas presents wrapped, boxed up and ready to mail. No last minute lines at the post office this year! Funny story ... Two Christmases ago I went to the little post office in the town where I work to mail off my secret quilter's package. I was in line a good 20 minutes because we only have one postal clerk in that branch. Well, got the deed done and walked out to my car. No car keys. No car keys anywhere. OMG, I didn't do what I think I did -- did I? Well, I sneaked back in there and caught the eye of the clerk. I asked her if I could have my package back that I had just taped shut. She retrieved it for me. Everyone in the place was really quiet and watching me. I shook the package. Yep, my car keys were inside. There's not a month that goes by that I don't run into someone in line at that post office who doesn't remind me of that package! I would have been moritified if I had had to call Kathy in Florida and admit that I was her secret quilter, and could she please not wait until Christmas to open that package! Sheesh, you can't take me anywhere!
Hope Jane is feeling better today ....
* My friend is buying a new house, and I'm absolutely delighted for her!
* A wonderful box of candles that I discovered in the china chest drawer!
* Even though I'm behind in my quilting, behind in my housekeeping, I'm in a really happy place right now!
