is being made.  I'm caught up on Bonnie Hunter's mystery Easy Street, the tree is up and the baking is done. I'm NOT doing any more!  Gifts are bought, and half of them are at their destinations.  Good enough!  Now DH wants to play Wii golf!

Twisted Tulips

DH bought me these gorgeous red tulips--well, they were they're twisted and I think I like them better now!  (And that may be 'cuz I'm twisted!)

Friday Fun

After all that whining, guess what I did all day?!?  Clue # 3 is almost done--just have to do about 2/3 of the last block--adding the large turquoise half square triangle, pressing and trimming them.  It's too cold to be out splitting wood, and I can procrastinate the rest with the best of them!!  I am loving this mystery!!  So tomorrow they should be done, and them I MUST (read should!) do something Christmasy.

Unprecedented and Unheard of!!

I am caught up with Bonnie Hunter's mystery and awaiting clue # 3!  However, DH comes home tonight and we have much to do:  I haven't even THOUGHT about Christmas decorating (well, maybe a spark flew in and right back out of my brain), and we are almost out of split wood (did you see how cold it's been here??? 20 below!!) Christmas baking, shopping, cards to be addressed and mailed.  Did you notice how I've made excuses for not keeping up on the mystery?!?  Am I setting myself up for failure? or blaming DH.  Hmmm, I think I'll go with that one----he's used to it and I don't want him to feel neglected!

Monday threads

are happening on my dining room table--I am actually doing Bonnie Hunter's new mystery, Easy Street.  I usually wait til it's revealed, gather the fabric, print the pattern, and relegate it the the herd of swine.  But this time the colors appealed and I bit the bullet!!

I have one more side to bind on a baby quilt and Christmas baking to do, and.....
