I think she was more difficult to capture in paint than Lola. We had a great time and felt we went home with a treasure. We were also gifted a wonderful tote from Land's End.
Since today was a rainy, dreary one I decided to finish up this little Christmas quilt.
I have had these hourglass blocks cut out for a couple of months and just kept getting distracted when it came to sewing them up. I really like the primitive look and it is already hanging on the wall by my small Christmas tree.
The mail this week brought a couple of treats. :o)
Mindi sent a lovely Christmas card and inside it were these lovely gold pins. They look so elegant and fitting for the season. The fabric postcard is from Norma. I always look forward to her Christmas cards. The picture doesn't capture the mica flakes on his beard and cuff - they add so much pizazz.
I hope you are all finished with your shopping and such and can sit back and relax in these final days before Christmas. I still have a lot to do but I refuse to get stressed about it. If it gets done...fine. If it doesn't...it will get done eventually.
Wishing you all a wonderful week. Please say a prayer for those families in CT. I have been thinking of them all weekend.
