Time for crafting

 I finished all the scarves for the volunteers that cover my lunch.
 I got to work on a piece from "Across the Pond and Around the Bend" This is Jan's piece that started with the stork and boat. It went to Elizabeth who added the reeds and Otter and then made it's way to me.  These two ladies set the bar high- let me tell you. Major intimidation! Jan and Elizabeth are amazing! I dug out every batik blue scrap I had and made the strippy ocean with the fisheys and reed. Jan's hubby is going to love this quilt. It is now on it's way to Brittany in Oregon and that girl has some mad talent.

Took a drive to Taos

 We packed up the family in the van and took a drive to Taos.
 We stopped for lunch,walked around the small plaza and then we
drove back. The best part was seeing the bald eagles near the Rio Grande gorge. Next places to explore is Ruidoso and Pagosa Springs

Modest but Perfect

 We decided this Christmas we were going to have a modest Christmas. We paid cash for all our gifts and put nothing on credit.
 Jack thought this was an excellent idea. We had many belly laughs, starting with Soulmate handing Riley a box of plastic spoons wrapped up as a gift. The look on her face was priceless.
 Both girls were on their little machines from last year with a newly purchased game. They are wearing some of their new clothes. Coats and boots and a few outfits for school.
  And as I write this they are still playing.

Merry Christmas

May your days be merry and bright! Merry Christmas!
