Getting close to the big day



One more day of work and then four glorious days off!!!! Tomorrow is dedicated to making Swedish coffee cake and Swedish meatballs for Christmas Eve supper. These are the traditions of my childhood. My mother had other "Swedish delicacies" that I never developed a taste for but I cherish the ones that I continue. After church and the Christmas pageant, we will meet at Kris and Tyler's to help Alice celebrate her first Christmas. She will probably sleep through most of it. Christmas day will be spent with Sue and family-Sarah and Emma will not be doing much sleeping!
I am still playing with Carolina Christmas and my border for it. I think it is not as busy as Bonnie's design. This quilt will hopefully adorn my bed next Christmas!

I like what you are playing with for the border! Karmen

You are cooking again! I think you better give that kitchen a rest. It may start to think it should be used for something other than storing fabric:)

Merry Christmas, dear friend! Have a wonderful holiday with all your girls! Your border is looking good. Like what you've done with this project. Wishing us all lots of sewing time in 2010.
