Christmas is Coming

It's less than 2 weeks away, and I've yet to send out Christmas cards.  I've yet to make Christmas cards (I usually give out a dozen made from fabric.)  I've yet to make ornaments.  I am behind.  And yet, I am ahead.  My tree is decorated.  My house is more than 50% decorated.  At this time last year, I suspect I didn't yet have a tree!  And last year?  My house never did get more than 50% decorated.

Our Itty Bitties had our Christmas breakfast on December 1.  Nothing like an early beginning to get a jump on the holiday season!  Unfortunately, one of our small group was at Dizzyland on the first, so our Itty Bitties were itty bittier.
 I loved this sign at Valhalla restaurant, and would have snapped it right up, had I a place to hang it.
 Last night, our art group, Sew Eclectic, met for our annual Christmas party.  The original plans went awry, and we ended up at my house.  It was a delightful surprise to find that I can host a successful Christmas party.  My mom's Spode helped set the mood.  :)
 Two of our group were unable to attend, but the rest of us had a delightful time.  oh, ouch.  I really need to replace that springtime tulip quilt with something red and green!
I've been making lists, and checking them thrice, and finding myself ahead of my usual schedule.  It's all good!

Well, no, actually, I'm still behind on the quilting front, but goals are good, and I have some.  I even made the first Christmas card, and delivered it in person yesterday.
I hope that you are finding this Christmas season to be as blessing-filled as I am.  The Lord is good, and it seems to be especially obvious during this particular month of the year.  May He go before you and bless your days!  Merry Christmas!

What a great sign. I am again in awe how you are so calm being so far behind or are you ahead? Behind in goals, ahead of last year?

Thanks for the Christmas blessings and blessings back to you and your family.
