It has been one of those laid back, just slow and easy weekends, around here. Just perfect. The weather has been really chilly, rainy yesterday, and just dreary and perfect for a fire in the stove today. Sug (my sister) and I had a playdate with a friend in the nearby tiny town, and actually got a bit of Christmas spirit. We had a great time, but then again, we generally do when we're together. LOL I even ran into town and picked up pizza for our dinner tonight. That's something we rarely do since it takes about 40 minutes round-trip, but I really had a hankering for Pizza Hut's thin and crispy veggie pizza, so I told Randy "I'll fly if you buy". LOL Blogger doesn't want me to put pictures up today. I'm still appliquing on my Jan Patek wallhanging, and I'm still working on Judy's October leaves. I'm even still (in my head LOL) doing Halloween. There's a pattern on my perpetual calendar that I keep on my cutting table of a black background with "Boo" pieced that I keep thinking I just have to make---I haven't even flipped that calendar over to November yet!! ROFL If I don't hurry up, it's going to be ready to flip the December calendar over, so I've either got to cut and sew that block up lickety-split or forget it for another year. What do you think?? And another question for you quilty bloggers...how in the world do you guys get so much stuff sewn, house cleaned, food bought and cooked, work a day job, have kids screaming when you walk in the door, post on your own blog and read all the bunches of others' blogs that you want to keep up with, and STILL you make quilty things right and left----oh yeah, and you actually FINISH them???? LOL I really would like some answers to this last question, please. :) For those of you who asked about my snowman, he's cut from a scrap of "warm and white" batting. I'm going to give him a carrot nose, some eyes, and buttons--eventually. LOL Right now, I'm going in by the fire now, and do a bit more applique. I do believe my husband is watching another one of those movies that he's "never seen before" which means he watches it EVERY time it comes on TV. LOL I'm hoping to get back to posting more frequently as it appears that my computer server problems may have been resolved (fingers and toes crossed). Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
