Christmas in Review


It's been a very eventful and busy week here!  We celebrated Christmas with our daughter and her family on Christmas Eve and had a delightful time.  It's always so much fun to watch the kids open their surprises.  :-)  Once most of the gifts were opened our daughter and son in law had to take our little Shaye (23 months old) to the ER. Won't bore you with the details - home with antibiotics and hopefully she'll be 'all better' very soon. 

Christmas dinner with friends- relaxing and fun!

I spent the next two days in bed with a tummy crud that appears to finally be gone.  Ugh! 'nuf said - LOL
  Before Christmas I scrambled to get gifts in the mail but discovered that I missed mailing one - dagnabbit!

Morsel - pincushions sent to blog friends!
 December Another Year of Schnibbles project :-)

Such wonderful gifts - each one's a treasure. As for those pincushions - I LOVE them! I just saw one on another blog & went and bought the pattern. I'm thinking its a conspiracy to get me to make one tomorrow.... and its working.

Hope everyone is on the mend - take care!

Wonderful gifts and friends!!! Wishing you blessed new year!!!

Quilter Kathy said...

Your pincushions are adorable!

Tammy said...

Wow, what wonderful gifts. For your text in red with a link, you must have used them before in your blog and it remembers that and instantly assumes you want to "link" up again. It's actually nice if folks don't know who these bloggers are; they can go right to their sites and "check 'em out!" :-)

Hey Darlene, I just received an email from you, and I don't really think it's 'from' you. Your email account may have been spammed.

Here's hoping that you and your sweet grandbaby are soon feeling like spring chickens again. Those pincushions are adorable...you have been one busy stitcher. I KNOW you must have been at the top of Santa's 'nice' list and you deserved every one of those wonderful gifts. Special gifts for a truly special gal!
