christmas eve morning

It’s way too early to be up, but i still have lots to do… here is a little glimpse of what’s been going on in my world the last couple of days…

getting ready for Christmas…

sewing for featherweight club…blocks are 2"- it is now quilted and hanging in the shop
baked and decorated the cut out cookies
I only make stars with clear sugar crystals on top- Hey a girls got to have a trademark…."remember Aunt Lisa…she only made star cookies at Christmas time.."
a little more decorating…
baked banana bread…damn…still not as good as Carole's
made..homemade "bailey's" Irish cream…for presents…
quilted "Dolly Madison Stars" for a shop sample, made by Colleen Foley…it looks great Colleen!
the close-up
This is what Nick does, while I am cooking and baking…his Sunday ritual…
I received this quilt last year from the girls at the shop…made a sleeve and hung it in our hallway for all to see at Christmas time.
way too many presents under this tree…Nick loves being Santa.
packing the peanut clusters for friends and neighbors…

Well I hope you all have a great Christmas…I will for sure…I have to get my last chance grocery list ready …I hear little ice/snow falling against the windows…we don’t need this today…but what are we going to do about it.  I am truely blessed to be able to do what I do, and I am very thankful that it is something I love…take care everyone!
