Oh Christmas Tree

Oh OK, I admit ... I didn't make this beautiful Christmas tree wall hanging. As usual the holidays have crept up faster than expected ... and my pot of Poinsettia's is still being beaded and embroidered. I WILL get it completed for next year and promise to post it then...

Life just keeps getting more and more interesting. Just when you think you've figured people out they go and do something really stupid and you are once again dumbfounded! No details- that would be gossip. None-the-less it sure is interesting.

I plan to spend my holidays with my cat Sada, finishing this year's holiday wall hanging, do a quilt repair job for the father, not that it's worth doing, but his step son-in-law thinks so. (Sure hope they have enough chuptza to pay me for the work...) Once that's over and done with I have a double wedding ring to hand quilt for my "charity" work this year for the quild. Last year I did my first all machine quilted item for the other guild. Luckily it was a twin size as I didn't enjoy it that much.

Happy Holidays, Happy Chanuka, Happy whatever!
Ho Ho Ho.

Ode to ma Cat

Sada the cat usually looks just like this .... She's epileptic and on heavy drugs to curb her seizures, so she lays about and sleeps 23 out of every 24 hours. The rest of the time she's grooming herself (excessively) or eating. Sada is too lazy to climb a tree, so I usually find her asleep in my chair or on my bed. Guests to the house always comment on how big she is - well that's because her mommy spoils her rotten! Spoiled or not she's been keeping mommy company for 15 years now.
A friend and I went border shopping (Port Huron) awhile back. Not that their fabrics are all that much better than ours ... but the selection and the books - Wowee! Ok, I'm a bibliophile, some would say a book slut, so of course I spend my $ on a couple of books and patterns. Now all I have to do is find the time. Once again it's almost Christmas and I haven't made any of the decorative items I wanted to make for the holidays. WHERE does the time go??

Ah well, happy holidays to all, here's hoping I can get some stitchin time soon!
