December 29th!!!!

Can you believe it is December 29th already? Where did the year go? I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Isn't it exciting to imagine what a new year will bring. I have great hope that there will be more sewing in my future. 

I had a great Christmas with my family in Atlanta.  Surprisingly, we had snow on Christmas Day. Not the northeast kind of snow but it was SNOW. Everyone was very excited. Since my nephew and his family were there too it was especially fun to be greeted with a little voice on Christmas morning, saying "Wake up, it's Christmas!" No one can beat a small child for appreciating the magic of Christmas. 

I was one of the lucky ones who had good travel in spite of the snow. I had booked a flight yesterday to come home and happily it went, only 45 minutes late. A little glitch when my plane landed at the Philadelphia  airport. The extra volume of travelers meant that I had to wait 45 minutes for my car but when I finally got home, I found that my neighbors had removed the snow from my driveway and sidewalk. They were dry as a bone. You just can't say enough about good neighbors. 

As you can see, it was an American Girl Christmas. The girls wanted their dolls to join us at the table but settled for the dolls to have their own table for the meal. All the dolls were very well-behaved. 

Since I was working 7 days a week, the Christmas cards I planned to write did not get finished. I'm happy to say that they are out in the mail now. I sat down and wrote them out the day after Christmas. I do believe in the 12 Days of Christmas so I consider the cards to be very timely. 

My final goal today was to organize my projects. These are my before and after pictures of the process. I had cleared the cutting table to use for gift wrap. It is such a great height for standing and wrapping. Now my projects are all in order. I have 4 going right now - layer cake quilt along as well as BOM's from two different shops and the blocks from my quilt group. I am thinking I best get cracking!

Happy Sewing in 2011, everyone!
