The Day Before, the Day Before Christmas!


How’s everybody doing, getting ready for Christmas? I have to admit that I haven’t been too shabby in the getting prepared situation. DH and I managed to get all the shopping done early last week. On Friday, I got EVERYTHING wrapped, labeled and ready to go!! And on Saturday I managed to bake Christmas cookies.

Yeah baby!! I think I’m ready for Christmas!!

The plans for today include giving the house a good once over before the craziness starts. Woo-hoo – you all know how much I LOVE to clean house!!! 😉

Yesterday was the big day at our church, which turned into a not so big day. On the Sunday before Christmas our church sets out paper bag luminaries. I showed you last year’s picture:


Well, this year, due to expected rain and high winds, the luminaries were cancelled. We still had our evening service, which was very, very nice, but there were no lights. 😦

Anyway, since I wasn’t nearly as busy as usual, and I needed to keep busy with something, I managed to get all the foursies sewn for the Celtic Solstice mystery quilt!!!


One of the 120 needed. I haven’t got them all pressed yet and I still have to sew the pinwheels from clue #3, but I’m catching up! I’m not likely to get much sewing done for the next few days (HA! That’s an understatement!!) but I might be able to squeeze in the pinwheels sometime and then I’ll be all caught up on the clues. Of course, Bonnie will be sending out another clue on Friday, so it’s hard to say if I’ll be able to KEEP caught up. But I just have to remind myself “It’s not a race!”

Oh, I put a few pieces up on the design wall, but I really have no guesses on how these clues are going to go together.


But this is what is on my Design wall. Click HERE to go to Patchwork Times and see what is on other design walls>

  1. Oh, I like the right block idea for the Celtic Solstice quilt. I’ve seen lots of stars floating out there, I wonder what the real design will be? Lovely colors. So bright and happy.


  2. Your softer colors are very pretty. I have not taken the time to play with designs yet and I’m still not ready for Christmas. Guess it is just a last minute Christmas for me this year – simplifying lots!


  3. Your design wall is really nice, I like the way you are putting together those blocks. I wonder what Bonnie thinks? Have YOU solved the mystery?


  4. Oh, how nice. I like the softer look to the colors in your quilt. Yours are what I usually use, but this time I used the brights that Bonnie used. Yours is really different from the others. Won’t it be fun to see how Bonnie put the top together?! Very nice.


  5. I saw the Quiltville link-up and noticed your 30’s prints, so I had to look at your blog! I’m doing mine in 30’s too, but using peach/apricot instead of pinks. I really like how all the 30’s play together!
    Yours are looking good! I don’t have a photo posted anywhere yet of mine.
