Busy at Christmas

December has kept me VERY busy and I am glad that Christmas day will soon be here. This morning was spent wrapping many gifts to get ready for the kids to be here. The best part is watching their excitement. I have had a great season. Time spent with my best friends (you know who you are) and of course family. I'll have many posts in the coming days. I am out of the office this week working from home if needed and am enjoying some time just at home with Jerry. (who is also on vacation working from home). Have a wonderful and GREAT holiday season! Happy Sewing! Carole

Cooler Weather!

I think the summer lasted a little longer this year! I finally convinced my dear husband last week that he must turn off the air conditioner and sure enough, the temperatures have dropped low enough that today I "unbagged" my winter wear and put the summer t-shirts away. We drained the pool yesterday and it is in the process of being filled back up with fresh water. We even had a duck swimming around in there this morning. Not sure where he came from but Jerry made him leave. We had a problem with them once and they can really dirty up a pool. I bought a few sweat shirt jackets during the after Thanksgiving sale and could not leave them blank. I finished this one this week so this picture shows the front and back. I have a thing for snowman designs, so I'm not sure if this is quite done, but it is good enough to keep me warm for today. I'm off to my hoopsisters group this morning and then lunch with friends. Happy Sewing! Carole
