Merry Christmas

xmas runner3
It’s Christmas Eve and I wanted to wish all my readers near and far away a very Merry Christmas!    Our Christmas this year will be a quiet one as we have no family near by or coming to visit so that is why I am still spending time sewing and quilting….not cooking and cleaning!

I had a charm pack of ‘Joy’ fabric so made another table runner for Christmas using my favourite pattern.
I asked my family to do me a favour yesterday and that was to let me take a family picture for Christmas outside.  Now this normally isn’t a big deal but it was –28’c outside with a wind-chill making it feel like –35’c…but the sun was shining.    I didn’t do my usually 20 pictures but only took about 5 and then we ran back into the house, the wind off the lake was cold!

See we do actually sit on that bench on our dock,  it’s not just for quilts!  :)
