    Packet is in the mail, Mirabelle, and let's hope it has flown directly there. Sorry, you have lost your internet for two weeks...and no sewing, either, I would be climbing the walls! Let's hope the little elves will work their magic!

    No picture Anael.

    Its a minus 14 here this morning, expected to rise to 19 above. We are going to my hometown and mail the USA bound packages today...so they will be in the mail....a bit late, you may have to dunk the cookies if they have turned hard, or worse case, crumble them for the birds....or just throw them away.

    Stay warm (or cool) and safe.

    QNS, I can't thank you enough!!! Your package just arrived. How did you know I always need pins and those you sent me are all different. So now I can't blame it on the pins anymore I've never seen the clear fabric grabbers before, those are great! And the I Spy directions with templates......lovely! ! ! ! Now I have to make an I Spy quilt
    Thanks so very much

    I figured with three darling grandchildren, you could use that I SPY template. Since it takes 145 pieces to make a quilt, maybe there will be a surprise in the New Year for you from other Grandsew Grams... The pins are a gift from Quilt in a Day, who sent it to me by mistake...and not what I ordered...so there was not a charge,so enjoy. We talked about those little stick on template things and I was in Des Moines after our conversation from way back and I picked up some for you. I am so happy you got yours , and to know that you got it... Now we wait on Canada delivery and Australia.

    Not too busy here today; I sent emails to the USA persons and gave them a tracking number and expected time of delivery. If you did not receive an email contact me please. My work for today is done. Picture this: A gingerbread house....slices of bread built into a 'house' and the spice 'ginger' under its 'roof' of bread. LOL!

    'Twas the night before Christmas,
    And the quilts were not made.
    The threads were all tangled, the cookies delayed.
    The stocking weren't hung, the pantry was bare.
    The poor weary Quilter, was tearing her hair.
    Stacks of fat quarters, tipped over in streams.
    Visions of Log Cabins, had turned into dreams.

    When what to her wondering eyes should appear,
    But a bus full of quilters with all of their gear.
    They went straight to work with just a few mutters,
    Sorting and stitching and brandishing cutters.
    The patterns emerged from all of the clutter,
    Like magic the fabrics arranged in a flutter.
    Log Cabins, Lone Stars, Flying Geese & Bear Tracks
    Each quilt was a beauty-even the backs.

    Her house how it twinkled, her quilts how they glowed.
    The cookies were baking, the stockings were sewed.
    Their work was all done, so they folded their frames,
    And packed up their needles, without giving their names.
    They boarded the bus, and checked the next address.
    More quilts to be made, another quilter in distress.

    She heard one voice echo, as they drove out of sight,
    Happy quilting to all and to all a good night!

    We're getting in the Christmas mood by singing songs together as a family...well, the girls and DH and I. DS just laughs at us. The kids opened gifts this afternoon. They will get filled stockings in the morning. It was very cold here today and more snow is expected tonight.

    Hope everyone had a good day; we had lots of quiet time, being relaxed and enjoying moments together. Dh cooked the chicken and vegetables for mid-day meal, but he had a Christmas Day request for pumpkin pie and apple pie:

    Sew Grands twins and Mick are sure growing! Nice to see a picture of them this morning...I think the Christmas joys are always echoed in the eyes of a child more than adults. This is season is theirs, happy and joyful. May every child find the joy and have a full tummy and shelter from the cold.

    We visited DD and family with Skye yesterday, it was amazing how much DGS had grown and his Christmas gifts.

    Hope everyone had a wonder day yesterday and it continues on into the New Year.

    Anael, beautiful pics of the Sewgrands. QNS is right--you can see Christmas in their eyes.

    "Thee packages" have arrived in the Netherlands and Fairfield, Iowa. ... so they are coming around the mountain of mail this time of year! Just be patient!

    Patience apparently was not the strong point of Mothers in Wal Mart this afternoon; I got so upset at them, I grabbed what I needed and made a quick exit. Not one I heard sounded like love...long break from school was not being enjoyed by those Mothers! Grumpy, Cranky, Cross, Winny....Grrr. Those young adorable Miracles of Life needed a good hug instead of the cross words. 700-thread count sheet sets were on sale for $25.00...I grabbed two more today. Nice to give guest the chance to enjoy that satin feeling...of combed cotton.

    I have my new glasses and feeling like tackling the quilt room now...

    Oh my so much goings and comings while I've been off QB. Sympathize with QE as lights went out this afternoon and oh no cows to be milked chores to be done etc. Thankfully only off an hour. Yesterday had ham--seems to be a common theme here!--potatoes, carrots, cranberry sauce, warm brownies with ice cream and plates full of homemade goodies. Followed up today with potato soup for the group. Tomorrow the rest of the crew comes for the weekend. I have lots of bookwork to get back at so here for just a minute.
    Merry Christmas--belated and Happy New Year to you all.

    Well I was sick all Christmas. I do feel a bit better taday. My cough isn't as often as before & not as intense. My throat isn't as dry anymore either. I had ta cancel my plans ta have everybody here but my #2DSis stepped up & had it at her house. When my DM asked my DH if he would still fix the turkey he responded by askin' "What else would I do w/an 18lb turkey?" We sent it w/#2DS but DH stayed here w/me. He made a quick run ta the store & picked up a tiny turkey & fixed it just for me.
