'Twas the night before...

.....when all through the house, this creature was stirring and busy as a mouse.

She was not altogether ready and wanted to sit and stitch, but tomorrow is the Christmas party, a quilt evening not to be missed...


As you see, my progress on the Santa banner is poor indeed.


I took it along this past weekend but we were busy helping our neighbors as some of their trees were taken out. We now have alot of work ahead of us to get this wood they gave us into firewood.

But finally, my tree is up and ready...
I have almost all the gifts wrapped for tomorrow night...
The newsletter is finished and just needs printing...

The pickle is in the tree waiting to be found by one of the ladies...

...who will win this extra gift...

My Christmas cards are waiting to be passed out...

And I even had time today to mail a package to Joni as a belated birthday gift and sew the last set of coasters for Barbara...

She asked for red, green and white. Barbara is a big snowman fan so what else could I made but snowmen!

I will be up late tonight doing more things for tomorrow. There is little sleep for elves at this time of year!

Well, it looks like you made a lot of progress. The coasters are really cute. Good for Barbara. The cards look to have very cute little ornaments attached. I can't wait to hear who finds the pickle. Tell the ladies good luck from me. Have lots of fun at the party.
Love you, Mom

Heidi, you never stop! How busy you are, and how lovely the things are that you make. I have finally finished my Christmas patchwork, and there is a photo on my blog.

Hi Heidi, you certainly are a busy bee ... sorry elf! in making all these lovely things. We enjoy your coasters so much! Thank you very much for your lovely Christmas card. I hope to write ours this weekend, which is rather late, ahum! Too busy here. But today we decorated our Christmas tree as well. Fleur (she's an angel) put the lights in again! Big relief to me.

Take care & hugs, Carolien

My goodness Heidi you have certainly been busy. Hope you all had a marvelous time last night. What a great idea to have a pickle search.

Wishing you and DH a Blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy 2009.
