    We got most of ours down, then I cut out a tumbler baby quilt and realized I don't have what I want for the border material. Then I fell and now nothing is getting done, decorations or quilting.

    Christmas decorations will be up until next weekend. We don't take them down until after Jan. 6 and like a few others have said, now that the hustle and bustle has calmed down, I can relax and enjoy the tree. I worked on cleaning up my craft/sewing area and I oiled my FW - then I made myself a January mug rug for my desk at work-- blue material with snowflakes. Going to finish putting the binding on now while watching tv.

    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    I spent two days using up my Christmas fabric by making 16 aprons and matching potholders. The Christmas stuff is half down and what a mess!

    Took my tree down New Years Day. Am frantically hand quilting on a double quilt I started on about 2 years ago. Determined to get it done this year.

    I have and I'm not ashamed of it. Household chores are more loyal than any husband or old dog---it doesn't matter how many others are in the house, chores will never cheat on you no matter how much you ignore them. They don't get their feelings hurt or get jealous. They'll sit right by your feet, to your left, right, front and or back and wait for you until you make time for them.
    I once left my tree up until two of my step children got to come home. I changed the decorations to go with the different seasons. By the time we were able to locate and go get them it was July so the tree had little flags and the lights were red, white, and blue.
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    I have had to be at work and all I can think of is the unfinished little candy bar quilt sitting by my machine. The decorations are still up, the little quilt unfinished and this week-end will be a challenge....... quilt or decorations just like many of the rest of us!

    Half and half. Can't go a week without being in my "imagine" room. When I look at my stash, I imagine what it will be.

    My stuff is all still up and it isn't driving me crazy yet. Probably because I've been in my sewing room almost non stop since before Thanksgiving. I'm working on the new Calypso quilt by Ro Gregg, loving the bright sunshiny colors!! It will be on display in my friend's new quilt shop later this month. My goal this year is one new project and one UFO per month so I probably won't even notice if my Holiday decorations are still up come July, lol!!

    This is true for me..I love sitting in my decorated living room with only the tree lights on and enjoying...very calming ....and we never take down the tree until Epiphany.

    We set up the Christmas decorations at the coast and took everything down before coming back home yesterday. My only excuses for not quilting are the excessive heat. a sewing nachine that needs an expert hand to re-set the timing (and he only starts working on 9 Jan) and sheer laziness after the 5-hour drive home. Wait for the energy avalanche that is building up!

    Had to take our tree down early because of my carpal tunnel surgery, DH needed help and we knew I would not be able to help much. Have been working on laying out quilt blocks on flannel tablecloth, trying to find a good pattern. Will order more fabric to complete the quilt. Reading quilt books and getting on this board while recovering.
