Tidying Up

 It's been raining non stop here for days and since I ran out of gingerbread to sew (finally!), I decided it was time to clear up the mess in the sewing room. That table was covered with boxes and scraps yesterday. Now I have a spot to sew on.

 I went looking for a holiday project and I didn't have to look far. Daddio's last quilt, his wonky Christmas log cabin quilt was sitting in a corner waiting patiently.

 I intend to spend my evenings sewing away while plowing through my vast Christmas DVD collection. I added The Man Who Came to Dinner this year.

I love Monty Woolley and not just because of his name. The guy was hilarious.

While I'm watching, I am going to put together a wonky border hoping to use up Daddio's giant stash of Christmas material. It's hard to believe this time last year we were drinking tea and sewing together. What a difference a year made. Sigh.


  1. Hooray the gingerbread is done! What fun to pull out a Christmas quilt already filled with memories. Sending a hug.....

  2. That's exactly what I need to do with my studio. I love that you still have projects that you and Daddio worked on together. That quilt is so much more than just a quilt.

  3. Hugs to you ...hard year. Hope Santa is extra sweet to you. IM ready for ELF and Christmas vacaton that's for sure

  4. I love that you are gonna finish the quilt at Christmastime. That can be your gift to each other. :-)

    I hope you can think of good things while working on it.

  5. Oh I love the idea of a Christmas Log Cabin quilt. I like those colors with the frosty blue and of course the red and green. :) I think my favorite black and white movies this time of year are the nick and Nora Charles Thin Man series, are you familiar?

    1. I love the Thin Man movies. I just watched several on TCM. I want a dog like Asta.
