Everyone's gone....

Our Christmas is over. Everyone started for home yesterday morning and have all arrived safely. That's a relief since radar showed some weather that they had to drive through to get there.

It's really quiet around here now. I'm trying to get my thoughts in order and the house cleanup started. I'm doing much better about the house. (my thoughts, however, are swirling)
Laundry has been started and I've gotten several loads complete. Lysol sprayed (trying to conquer the cold and flu virus) and whether I'm doing any good is debatable .... but I think I am and that's what is important after all isn't it.
Actually the house is in really good shape since Deb did such a good job of cleaning up after everyone. Thanks! You have a backbone of steel girl!!
We still have a lot of leftover candies but what Scott doesn't finish off I'll stick in the freezer to enjoy later.
I think today the decorations (what few I did put up) will be taken down and packed away and I'll then be done with my domestic chores for awhile.

The quilts I made for everyone were all a big hit. And a surprise to a couple of the boys. I've got three (no four) more quilts to make for this year and then my immediate Must-Do list will be complete. I want each member of the family to have a snuggle quilt from me.

I placed an order for some fabric yesterday (gotta love clearance) and as soon as it arrives I'm going to start on a couple of baby quilts for the hospital. Our guild keeps the nursery supplied with baby quilts to be given to each newborn and they are in need of several for the first couple of months of the new year. So our guild needs to crank some out in a hurry.

Then I plan to put some of my UFO's on the frame that need to be quilted. I love piecing the tops....but they really need that next step to be finished.
Maybe I'll make a New Year To-Do List and challenge myself to see how much I can get finished this next year. Not that I really do better with challenges....but it's a thought.

Gosh I miss those sweet faces already......


  1. I am glad you all had a great Christmas. The picture is so cute and I definitly would miss them too - just the minute they left! Good luck on the UFO list I need to do that as well!!

  2. The kids are just darling! I'm glad you had such a nice time with your family.
