This is so much fun, getting these great gift ideas and patterns. Along with a project there are recipes and stories of Christmas's past. You should go check it out.

Some Up Dates

Well I have been very busy getting swaps and gifts finished. Advent Swap to be mailed Friday 11/06 also I have to confess that I did not get to the post office with my last sticher angels package, sorry some family business kept me from it. It will also go out on Friday. I think maybe I bit off more than I could chew so a little crazy keeping up with it all. It was a very sad night last night at our house the Phillies lost, but they did have a great year.
My computer at home is still not up and running but hoping to get it back next week, so maybe some photos then.
It is getting into the season when my family comes home, which is always wonderful, daughter coming in from Alabama, son coming in from Maine and hoping that my sister can come from Michigan this year, that would be great.
I have started looking around for some quilting retreats or meetings that I can get to in my area, you would think that in a big city like Phila you could find some, but I don't drive so that makes it difficult, should get my drivers license.
I should be back to work, talk to everyone soon.
Happy weekend.
