We are getting hit with a blizzard...wind gusts up to 40 mph....
I live about 15 miles north of Philadelphia...
The Eagles game was cancelled until Tuesday...
Philadelphia Mayor Nutter declared a snow emergency at 2pm today and told
everyone to stay off the roads...
My sister had a post-Christmas breakfast family
get together this morning...
as soon as we saw the snow falling (1pm) we started home...
visibility was not that great then.....
we made it home safe and sound....
no problems...
If you are travelling....stay safe....

Table runner Completed

I have finally finished my 2nd table runner....
this is a Christmas gift for another family member..
(I can't mention any names....)
This is the same QAYG table runner that
I made previously....
I backed it with the same material as I did with the first one
This one is also reversible.....


The colors are more burgundy than red....
Now all I need to do is wrap it....
....Merry Christmas....

Trying to be Jolly....

I am trying to be jolly...but it is hard since I had to do a system recovery on my computer...
6 hours on the phone with Gateway and still not finished....
I did manage to back all of the files...wheww!!! and my outlook express and address book....
another wheww!!!  I cannot image trying to remember all of this stuff...so please everyone
remember to do a regular backup of your system...
I have Windows XP and my computer is 7 years old...so now I have to update my computer
with 7 years of updates....eek!!!
I am trying to finish a table runner in the midst of all of this..
but I keep on saying...this too, shall pass..sigh....
I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season....

Finished Project

I previously blogged about the fabric I purchased and now I am ready to
 show you what I made...
another table runner....


this is a Christmas gift for a family member
this one is a little different from the one
I made for myself as I made it reversible..



instead of backing it with muslin like I did mine...
I backed it with a Fall/Autumn fabric
now the table runner can be used for a
few holiday months..

When I showed my "other" family member
the table runner, she admired it
and I think that was a hint that
she would like one....
don't you think?
Well, now I need to make another one..
and I thought I was finished...LOL...
back to the fabric store for more
fabric.....
I hope everyone is enjoying themselves
getting ready for the holidays...
there are so many gifts being made...giveaways....
and fun things going on in blogland...

Until next time....

Christmas Window Decorating


Yesterday I decorated our front window...



I made the ceramic Christmas tree (40" high)
many years ago and it is perfect
for a picture window...the little bulbs
light up at night...
the two dolls are Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus
Annalee Dolls...(sorry you are looking
at their backs) and the two large
Christmas balls overhead kind of fill up
the top of the window....
