Just a fly-by before I shut down my laptop.
Megan, glad to hear that your son is improving.

Pat, sending prayers that your symptoms do not progress.

I can see the end of this year long tunnel that has been my life. Finished piecing my last quilt, started quilting on the last one I sandwiched. Tomorrow I plan to sandwich the last one - have to have them both finished by Saturday morning at the latest; Friday afternoon would be even better. (Have to return a sewing machine)

I can't wait to watch everyone open my efforts! But til then, I still have lots to do.

I just tell myself to take a deep breath, and SMILE!

Sounds like we are all scurrying to finish up our gifts. I still need to make a purse for a friend. I think I am meeting her for lunch tomorrow. Would be nice to get it done by then. Took me 5-6 hours to make the one for another friend. Maybe I can get it cut out during Allie's nap today and work on it tonight and tomorrow morning.
i bought myself a Christmas gift - an assortment of 14 1-yard cuts of Kaffe Fasset fabric from Craftsy. I love them! They sent me a 35% of coupon. Now I want to buy more!
Stay healthy, everyone! There's too much to do to be sick!

Oh Pam I love Kaffe fabric. I can never decide what to make with it. I pull it out and look at it then I can't cut into it. What will you make out of it?
So far my symptoms haven't progressed. I don't feel any worse than yesterday. My SIL and 2 GS have the flu. Luckily I haven't seen them since Saturday. There are so many teachers out sick we can't get subs. Tomorrow is the last day of school.
I think i have my sewing projects finished. I still need to come up with a gift for the family exchange with my family. I'm not sure what I am going to get. I also have to get something for my sons. I am shopping Saturday. I hope to finish then.
The principal is buying lunch for us tomorrow. I have no idea what she is ordering. I did hear she was thinking of getting cheesecake. I am sure none of it will be what I should be eating. We had a breakfast potluck at school this morning.

Gorgeous Pam!! Love those colors, anxious to see what you do with them!

Anyone have any gift ideas for a casual quilter? My mom likes to do small quilting projects throughout the year and usually makes bigger quilts around Christmas. My dad is stumped for gift ideas. I suggested an Accuquilt but I hardly know anything about them. I did some searching quickly in the forums and changed my suggestion to the Fiskar Fuse with the adapters. I'm worried it was a terrible suggestion. I don't know if it will be too limiting.

Diet is going mediocre over here. Once I hit my first goal I've found myself being complacent and going off diet here and there, not enough to gain, but enough that I haven't lost much Has this happened to anyone?

I have been gaining and losing the same 2 pounds all month. I will be happy if I can stay the same weight for the next 2 weeks.
I spend most of the day Christmas shopping yesterday. It was very frustrating. I started at Toys r Us. My GS wants a mixer for Christmas. He plays endlessly with his kitchen set. I had order a mixer, toaster, blender set from Zulily way back on Nov 12. I kept checking and it was supposed to ship Dec 3. When it still wasn't shipped on Dec 12 I was concerned. I came home and cancelled my order. Last week Toys r Us had tons of the mixer I wanted. Yesterday they were out. They called another store that said they had it. I drove 25 miles there and they didn't have it. I went to buy a Chromebook for DH, no one would wait on me. They kept taking people who came in after me. I was walking out and they finally waited on me and they didn't have it. I came home and had a piece of chocolate and finished up shopping on Amazon. I am planning on wrapping today and seeing if there is anything else I need. My 2 GS do want a cape so they can play Super Heroes. I need fabric for that.
Frustrating day, but I only had 1 piece of chocolate.
Pat

I REALLY, REALLY hate that!! Why does that happen? I also hate it when there are long lines and a new register opens up and they yell for customers BUT NOT NEXT IN LINE and the closest people who just got in line run over!! These are some of the reasons I don't like shopping! I did a lot of my shopping on line this year. I just had Christmas with my family and I'm going to have to make an exchange due to wrong size. I hope I can do that relatively easy (especially since I paid more for the item than I really wanted to).

But only one piece of chocolate, Pat. That was really good considering.

Meganc, I'll be interested in what your mom thinks of the Fiskar Fuse. I've been looking on line as well. It's so hard to know just by descriptions. Even if you try one out it's hard to compare what the benefits and negatives of each system are. I'm interested in the Accuquilt Go. I just wonder how much I'll be able to use it. Will I have to buy (expensive?) pieces for every different thing I make, etc.

Eating? I'm not doing well and I can really feel it. I just don't feel well like I do when I'm eating properly and exercising. I'm trying to remember to drink my water. I've been sick and remember to drink it when I take my medicine, but I don't think of drinking as often now that it's cold outside.

Pam - those colors are gorgeous --- can't wait to see what you do with them.
Pat -- sure hope some bug doesn't ruin the Holidays for you.
Finished all my baking --- 21 different cookies, candied pecans and a load of caramels. Will Never do it again.
Too much nibbling. Finished all our parties except Christmas with the kids.
Now to get back to my machine.
Went to see Fiddler on the Roof today at the Playhouse...fantastic!
Have got to get back on the diet track.
Merry Christmas to all!!!
