    Lucky you...wish it would rain here in Ca for some snow in the mountains to go snowboarding!
    I'm working on a last minute customer quilt that was ordered today...yay! And I'll be picking my winner of my free offer for long arm quilting contest!
    It's going to be a great weekend!

    I plan to make a 10 minute Christmas runner for a gift, work on my Christmas quilt, bake some cookies! Maybe make a rasin pie too! I hope to stay home all day! If time allows, I want to put fabric on my comic boards!

    I'm going to work on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt part 4 this weekend, and also finish the border of the 2010 Mystery. I'm hooked, I can't wait on friday mornings for the next step. This gives me something to look forward to each week. Also working to get 9 more BOTM blocks done, I'm really behind on that one.
    Each day is a blessing, so do something you love each day.

    I started sewing some triangles together last night and tonight and will be doing that off and on this weekend. I'll do a bit of housework, laundry, take care of my Cockatiel and cats. Take my avatar dog (Cookie) out to potty. Same, same.

    I am working on my first Bargello called "Melinda's Heart" somebody on the board introduced us to recently. What a job! It has 16 fabrics & I'm not happy with my choices but have so much invested I decided to go for it. Now I'm on row 17 of 53 rows. It's one of those jobs I'm obsessed with & it's all I want to do now. You might know I never start with something simple. Duuuh. LOL

    Husband and I cut down a tree today and just finished decorating. Might be finishing the hand quilting on a lap quilt tonight. Just sewed together a pair of fingerless gloves I knitted. Basted another lap quilt and two placemats. Hope to machine quilt the placemats and a second lap quilt tomorrow. Have three mug rugs in mind for gifts but if that doesn't happen, it will be no biggy. Things are finally coming together. Get these gifts finished and might have time and energy to do a little Christmas sewing for my own house.

    Well, DH was away from Thurs till late this afternoon. Last evening I went to my school stafff party at my principal's house and today I intended to cut out squares for a raggy quilt, do FMQing on placemats for my girls, and wrap gifts. However, my plans changed when I discovered some of my favorite stores were having 40 and 50% off sales today! I went shopping instead. 6 hours later (having done plenty of damage to the checking account) I came home...totally finished with my shopping for this year. This evening, DH and I ordered a pizza and are watching Xmas DVDs. Tomorrow afternoon I will try to do what I had intended for today.
