We are having a WHITE Christmas---this is Kodiak loving the snow this morning. We are to be going to our son's for dinner but will have to shovel the driveway before we go. One minute it looks like it is stopping and then it blows harder.
We have added a new kitten to the family, her name is Kallie
Waiting for the next step in a Christmas Mystery---only doing a wall hanging so I am quick on this one.

I have almost finished wrapping gifts, what I have made this year has been 3 fleece blankets for the Gkids, 2 sets of 4 place-mats; 1 set goes to DS#2's GF and the other set to my neighbor next door. I also made a journal cover, 4 coasters that match place-mats, knit a washcloth and crocheted a pot holder.
I just pulled fabric for a Christmas mystery from one of my groups----It will be a fun wall hanging as it has a card theme as the main fabric.
Need to plate up some cookies that DH is wanting to eat, so will do that before they are gone and deliver to friends on the street before the snow gets to heavy out there.

Well it doesn't look like much but I recovered the seat of the chair. Old fabric on it was wearing thin in the front and tacks were coming through the top, also 2 springs on the underside had come out so I had to repair the hooks for them. It isn't as puffy as it was before but did what I could. Also in this room the dresser has plastic runners that the drawers glide on. Second from the top drawer the runners on both sides were broken----so figured I would just replace the runners----WRONG---couldn't find the same runners so replaced with a set that goes on the drawers and the inside of the dresser. First try on one side was off so took off and raised it and it is still off just a bit, but when you push in the drawer you lift and push in and it looks fine---but no picture of it.
This guest room is mostly in blues as all the pictures have a water theme, even the 2 other items in the room have to do with water----picture has knots a seaman would use and the barometer looks like a captain's wheel.

So far it has been a good day---I had 2 GKids sing to me as soon as I open my eyes and had the present open shortly after I came down the stairs. As I told someone they are more excited about my birthday than me. Well it is one of those birthdays that you can't turn the numbers around to say you are younger---it is the same no mater which number is in front. We will be going to dinner somewhere as with two kids need to find someplace kid friendly and not a drive through.

I can remember back when we owned the liquor store, I had to call in some orders. Most of the time I spoke to a person right away and then there were a few companies that had automated systems. It would be press this number, then listen to the menu and press this number and so on. Now we can't phone any business with out the menu to listen to----have you ever just not pressed a number and waited for the operator of the business? I found sometimes it worked better.

This last week I have joined the Lamoille Women's Club, a community service club that meets out in Lamoille. Beautiful little town up against the Ruby Mountains. They have meetings once a month with a nice lunch before the meeting. Well they have many groups that are working on service projects and activities---one is a sewing group that meets on Tuesday at the club house, I went yesterday and was welcomed warmly. I have been looking for a group to join to just sew and talk to women----and I have found it. I do have to drive 20 miles to get to it plus we have a pot luck lunch.
Well we are getting some ugly looking clouds and expecting some thunder and lighting so better get going.

A little about me---well I am a retired business owner, really 2 business, but the last one was in Beatty, NV. DH and I ran an RV Park for 12 years and then we both retired and moved to northern Nevada. I am a "Jane of all Crafts" as I like to dabble in assorted crafts. The one I have hooked on to the most is quilting and have stayed active for the last 10 years. I did a little back in the early '70's but then got married and had a couple of kids, got into the liquour store business, cub scouts and kids in sports so quilting was put way back on the activity level. Yes I have 2 grown sons with families of their own, raised a DGD from the time she was 5 until she turned 18 and she is out on her own and also have 3 other GKids, 2 girls and a boy from my 2 boys. I have just joined the Lamoille Women's Club to get active in some community activities. They meet once a month with a luncheon before the meeting which lasts about 2 hours. They also have a sewing day once a week that I might join in on maybe other week and then a small group that just got started with a couple of other ladies here in town.
Well lets give this a try and see if it shows up.
