This has been a very tearful holiday season for me this year. I have been really missing my mother. I've been doing a lot of baking and cooking and that makes me think of her. But I have to admit that when Christmas day arrived it turned out to be one of the best Christmases I've had in a while. There was no fighting and everyone seemed to get along. Some of the neighborhood kids, who are friends with my kids, came down and ate dinner with us. They even helped clean up the kitchen afterwards.
We exchanged some nice little gifts and everyone seemed happy. I got to sew for a few hours and made good progress on my Wanderlust quilt. I'm working on the birds in the air block which is the corner of the main block. I need to make 120 total and have 49 completed. Slow and steady wins the race.
So from my house to your house I wish you a very Merry Christmas.
