Merry Christmas!

It is almost here...and I am just about ready! Tomorrow is the cooking-Swedish coffee cake and Swedish meatballs. Tradition for me since I was a little girl. My mother would do every Christmas Eve. She would gather the ingredients, mix and let the dough rise. She would put the bowl on top of the radiator. I haven't seen an old radiator in many a year. I have to struggle to find a warm place for my dough to rise. This year I will be baking and cooking with Laur. One of the girls better know how to do this-I won't be around forever!

I have to wrap a couple of gifts but I need tape. Tomorrow that will happen.

Here in the Atl, there is a chance of Christmas snow. Not too exciting for me as I really HATE snow but it would be a treat for the kids. Laurie's B & B is open so I am good to go!!

I have finished Step 5 of RRCB mystery quilt. 600 half square triangles. They went together much faster than I thought they would. It took me longer to get step 3 done. Tomorrow the next step is published. I can not figure out what the pattern will be yet. Maybe tomorrow it will be a little clearer.

So to all my blogging buddies and all my friends, near and far....MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!
