A Very Merry Christmas to All

Exciting time

Seems every day is exciting to me in some small way. Guess I am just one of those people who is always happy to see another day. Yesterday brought smiles when I heard Emma calling Red..she hasn't been all that interested in him..perhaps because of the pain..maybe because of the pain killers, but yesterday  her sweet voice was music to my ears. She is still very lame in the one hind leg, but she is trying to walk more and seems to enjoy those hot soaks. I think I might try some holistic methods, it certainly couldn't hurt...the first will be burdock since it is so available (I normally hate that weed) heating the leaves and wrapping arthritic joints helps people..reduces swelling...how could it hurt?
Then Happy Mail came...It was the last quiltie in a swap that has gone on for 26 months. How's that for a successful swap? For 26 months we have made quilties depicting the letters of the alphabet..The quilties are 6" square and  each one was a work of art. I hope to get them into a book/books for others to enjoy. I will have to take some pictures and post them.
I did manage to get Karen's purse cut out yesterday, well most of it. Never saw anything quite like this..darn thing has like 60 pieces. Hopefully I will get time to make it. I do not do well with distractions and let me tell you...My DDIL (Ilove her) plays a game that has all sorts of noise, ditto for my DGD. Then we have three phones going off most of the day...each has it's sound, then we have text messages each having it's own sound...Gosh I'm glad I'm not that important...I have my cell phone with in in case of emergency...when I hear a voice the next thing I hear better be telling me who died or who is injured...I can't even imagine people tracking me down while on vacation to "chat"...really?
Let me share a pic of my Leanna...The doll Cherie sent to keep me smiling...and she sure does.
I'm off to make some sausage gravy and biscuits...not the healthiest breakfast, but my sons favorite and it's his last full day here...Wishing everyone a great day!

Note the pretty face and the broach  with a Butterfly (you  know it's mine)
