Something's Missing

Several weeks ago, I ordered a big - really big - ribbon tied group of fat quarters from Hancock of Paducah. It has been here for a few days now and I have not untied the bow to see what all is inside. However, I like what I see.
As I have said before, when it comes to quilting I do not just have one area that is my main interest. I work more with some types of fabric sometimes - but love it all. Lately, I have been drawn to Civil War prints. Now isn't that a great stack of fabric?
And Christmas, I love Christmas, but the last couple of weeks before the actual day are pretty hectic even when you are an old lady and don't do all the things you used to do. This year I have been sidelined a bit with a cold and have done lots of lazing around and spinning my wheels. However, I am feeling much better and certainly can't complain as I have been so blessed with good health. I did get my cards out and packages off that needed to be sent. I still have a little shopping to do and there is still plenty of time for that. I will be with Sherry, Barclay and Hannah Christmas Eve and with them at Deb and Steve's (their bffs - great people!!) so I will being making a red cake (that is my specialty) as my contribution to dinner. Therefore, I do not have a lot of cooking to do.
So what is missing? I haven't been sewing! That will all change after the Christmas celebration. I will just relax, get done what I need to do and enjoy this lovely season! The Civil War prints (and all the other fabric down in the basement) will be there waiting to be cut and sewn. (Click to enlarge)

Oh, i too like your fabric. Elle and I have been setting the dining table and polishing silver today for our Christmas Eve dinner celebration. We are doing it in the afternoon so mom doesnt have to be out so late. We will have fun and Elle has quite a nice flare for table decorating. We got out the antique table cloth and the good china and crystal. Mom will like to see it set so nicely. Have fun at your party also.

Dearest Carol, it has really been fun "blogging" with you this year - I am about to post my 100th entry - can you believe it! Sounds like you have a wonderful Christmas Day lined up - and fun projects to get back to once the hustle and bustle has died down...here's to 2010! Cheers, Jewels
