A week until Christmas?!!!

We made it home safely from our little trip to pick up Brandi and visit with some of my kids at the same time!

Brandi stayed Sunday to Wednesday with us…. but she was sick with stomach issues a good bit of her visit!

Molly enjoyed her visit and she split her sleeping time between the mattress and the recliner nearer the fireplace! πŸ™‚ She was enamored with the fireplace πŸ™‚

While Brandi rested I finished remaking her wallet to her specifications….

Above and below is a change purse I made to coordinate with her wallet… she loved them both! And had moved most of her items to her new wallet before leaving Wednesday!

Here is a link to the change purse on Youtube…. it is an easy make and so useful! And that is the only near Christmas finish I have to share….

Once dropping her off with a friend to go back home …. I was anxious to quilt! I shared this recent rolling shot with you last week…..

Some close ups of the cross hatching pattern I am quilting in the heart above and beside …. and a look at my set up at my quilt frame and where I am actually at right now below!!!!

This week I hope to finish a project for my daughter and get that in the mail to her. But today, Sunday…. I will quilt on the Boho heart quilt and work on this little project too ❀

Linking up this fun hand quilting with my slow stitching buddies at Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching linky ! <<<<< Come see what others have linked up too πŸ™‚

A little Christmas around our cabin….

testing the snowman…

And then showing off the snowman outside πŸ˜€

Above is our little tree that looks MUCH better decorated…. I love the train along the right…. and the nativity along the left side of the tree!

And the fireplace mantle is the perfect place for our 3 Christmas stockings….

I finally remembered to order our wall calendar where I keep track of birthdays and dr appointments etc….

Here is what the calendar looks like inside….

We have tried “winterizing” our ferns… here are 2 of the 3 in our front bath hanging on a extra shower rod and rarely watering…..

Look at all that new growth!

Then I saw this posted by a friend on Facebook… I had to share here!

Have a blessed Christmas y’all! Thanks for visiting πŸ˜‰

    So sorry Brandi wasn’t feeling well during her visit. I love the fabric you used for the wallet and change purse. Your quilt is looking great! That is a big snowman! It looks great outside your cabin. Merry Christmas!

    your house is like ours when company stays – air mattresses all over the place – such is life in a little house. Sorry your daughter was sick most of the time she was there – good luck with wintering the ferns – I never have luck with that
