My Distraction....

Sweet Scout is our houseguest this week - he arrived yesterday. What fun he is! Cooper never leaves his side. In fact they are constantly playing, rough-housing, wrestling, and playing tug-of-war with their toys. The dog hair is flying! Mickey is hiding out under a quilt - trying to stay out of the way.

And so my sewing schedule may be a little off this week, and that's fine with me!

I did do a little hand sewing yesterday, but that's it. This morning I hope to machine quilt a bit...

I also wrapped Christmas presents yesterday - except for one - I realized I bought the wrong size - ugh! And so one exchange needs to be made, hopefully today when I go to my hair appointment.

Have your quilting projects been put aside until after the holidays? For the most part, mine will keep going with little family breaks here and there. This is a quiet Christmas for us. I miss baking Christmas cookies, but there is really no point. I did buy some Honey Baked Ham for us - that will have to be our 'treat'! And I'll be making some egg and sausage rolls for us to enjoy over the weekend for breakfast. Hubby and I decided we need to do something special so we're going to a movie on Christmas Eve. Any suggestions?

I've already been on a nice hike this morning. The weather is cold, but with a coat, hat, and gloves it's not bad at all. At least the sun is shining!!!

Have a happy day!


  1. projects are all packed up and in the back seat/floor of the SUV! We leave next Tuesday, kids coming Sat. and Sunday so it's just surfing the web and reading for me! Happy holidays!

  2. I enjoyed "Allied" but not enough action for my husband...

  3. Happy Christmas and a creative and safe 2017.
    Thank you for writing your blog, have enjoyed it immensely.
