So, I finished decorating the tree, and it is beautiful.
I haven't done much sewing, other than to make a block for our outgoing Valley Oak Quilt Guild President. It was to have a green background and a flower. I went with simple, because there's simply not enough time for anything.
I don't know if I ever mentioned the summertime drawing I won from Vicki Welsh, hand-dyer extraordinaire. I'm not even sure what I did, maybe liked her on Facebook? But she drew my name, and sent me this amazing selection of her hand dyes. I've been meaning to at least make a postcard to thank her, but time is running faster than I am these days. You should click on the link and check out her shop, because she has a lot more than just fabric. She is one talented woman, that's for sure!
So much to do, not enough time. Spend it on the things that matter. Hug your family, smooch your pet, smile at a stranger. The world is better for it. And on that, I'm off to the next thing. (Boy is the next family member to walk in the door going to be surprised. I might just grab them and give them a great big hug. After all, it is the season!!)
Joy to you!
