Where does the time go?  You think you've got plenty, and then *poof* it's gone.  The kids begin arriving in less than a week.  So much to do, and so poorly organizing my time! 

Whatever gets done, gets done.  Hopefully it will be all kinds of wonderful.  I made a batch of Toffee Squares today.  We've decided that they're better with semi-sweet chocolate, rather than milk chocolate, but now I'm out of almonds and pecans.  nuts.  I'll have to substitute walnuts, if I really want nuts.  Good thing I have a source for them, eh?

The tree is in the house.  Here it is, with my elf helper.
He's a bit burly, but I still had to help bring in the tree. My shoulders ache, and we brought it in two days ago.  I guess I'll add the lights tomorrow.  I just can't seem to get inspired.

I finished a quilt for hire that I've had for a long, long time.  I've had it for so long, its owner forgot about its existence!!  I will be shipping it shortly, and thought you might like to get a peek at it.  It really is lovely, and in my colors.  :)

If you click on the photo, you might be able to see the metallic gingko detail.

Sew Eclectic had our annual Christmas party and took our annual group photo.  I liked some of the lead-up photos best.  :)  Don't you love how each one beckons another to take her place in the group?

Merry Christmas to all!  Time to get back to preparations.

What a great group of quilters! Love your quilt for hire-the quilting is beautiful. I also have not decorated for Christmas. I guess Christmas is in my heart this year, not in my house! LOL

You need to post a picture of what you got in the exchange too. It's been hard to be inspired to decorate this year but I knew I'd feel better once I did (and then I had to go to my dad's and do some there for him too.) Hope you get it done before the kids come home.
