Christmas Eve Wednesday

Wednesday, December 24, 2008
The week is shaping up quite well. The house is somewhat clean, most the cookies are baked, and Laura Beth and Mason arrived last night. Melissa (Laura Beth's friend) was waiting here to see her, and they carried all LB's and Mason things in and first thing was to set up the portable crib/playpen.


So many portable things to make traveling with a baby easier than 25 years ago! But maybe they should have had the directions.....


Grandpa could hardly wait for Mason to get here, he's busy singing to him!

And I got the Christmas quilt done. Did you know those blocks started out as POTHOLDERS! I got the idea from Pat. But I didn't want to finish all those corners so it became a full size Christmas quilt! I cut the blocks in half and set them in strips like Chinese coins. Since it was so busy, I put a plain Kona Royal blue in the strips. It's finished quite simply, old fashioned, plain blue on the sides, and no top or bottom borders. I used Keryn's Limetree panto, it's simple and I think it fit this quilt perfectly. I still have lots of Christmas fabric, I think next I will use them in a Courthouse Steps quilt.

I'm off to finish frosting the cookies and make supper, I think we will have company tonight. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful Happy Holiday Season!

Strippy worked out nicely didn't it? Much better than the pinwheels. Ken and Mason have exactly the same head shape, too cute. Where's Ruby?
