Post Christmas wishes.

Just where did the days before Christmas go?
Its a commonly asked question.
They disappear in a daze of preparations,
 gift wrapping, cooking and socializing with family and friends.
l would like to thank all you lovely readers who think
 l have something to say worth reading.
Quilting brings such joy into my life and l love sharing my adventures with you all.
l have met and made so many wonderful friends through quilting and my blog.
Wishing you all the joy of the  season. Stay safe these holidays.
After all there is that ever growing list of quilts to make!!
A few special gifts to share.
This one came in the week before Christmas.
Even the card is cute!
Thank you Kathie! Just might hand quilt this one.
A few days before Christmas,
a dear friend gave to me - 12 Christmas Cookies!!

Almost to cute to eat!!

And now l am preparing for my annual sojourn
 to Sorrento for the month of January.
So its cleaning out the fridge, making sure the washing and ironing
are up to scratch,  packing all the left overs to be enjoyed another day, cleaning the house
and packing all my sewing stuff to take with me.
l have several different groups of women coming to join me for sewing
retreats during the weeks ahead, and l want to be sure to have
 plenty to work on. Several more birthday quilts top the list,
and maybe a few PHD's ( Projects half done! ) Thanks to Francoise for that one.
l love using it. Makes me and all my quilting friends sound so smart!! LOL
l hope to be able to post from Sorrento.
Thanks for visiting.
