    Tuesday


    Good Morning Folksies!
    It's been really really really fun and as always C-R-A-Z-Y around here. I thrive on chaos, so all is well.
    Still have some chaotic days left until the official holidays are over for us. We have some friends that are staying with us the next day, on their way to Massachusetts to visit their child, one of my cousins arrived down at Mom's last night on their way back home and we have a few other relations coming in for the New Year.
    Here is my post Merry Christmas to you and a most excellent Happy New Year. See you soon!
    Sewing mends the soul.

    Good Morning to All.

    Blondie, so glad you are getting to enjoy family and friends from far and near. Have a wonderful remainder of your holidays and blessing for the new year.

    Back to the grind for me today. It's supposed to be warm today and then get colder and snow tonight and tomorrow. We did have a white christmas at our house but by the time we drove (about 1 1/2 hrs.) to BIL's there was no snow.

    Hope everyone has a great day.

    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

      No white Christmas here in Luxembourg, gray and rainy. But the chaos in our house is similar to all the houses, where some 20 people went in and outn the last couple of days.
      Doing the laundry and ironing today, but we'll go for a walk later on. That 'll do us some good, to DH and me.

      Nice day to everyone from Luxembourg

        Hi Blondie & Everyone....

        I guess this is back-to-the-grind day for most of us. We had a wonderful Christmas, very tranquil, good food, lots of calls from family and friends. DH was off yesterday but is back to work today.

        My plans are to begin organizing and cleaning my sewing room this week. I also have end-of-year bookkeeping to do for our business and getting us set up for the new year. We still have plenty of holiday leftovers, so cooking won't be much of a chore for a day or so.

        I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and that your are looking forward to a happy and creative New Year!! Talk to you later...Barb

          Hey everyone!
          Well much the same here. Lots of family and friends in and out. Fun times had by all. Today thought back to reality. Must take the Christmas decorations down today. Then off to the sewing room to continue to put the BOM quilt together for the guild! Hope you all have a great week!
          Hope You all Have a Happy New Year!

              Hi everyone,

              My DH is back to work and I am picking up the Christmas day debris today. I will be sewing, though! I made three quilt tops for my three granddaughters and they must be quilted this week if possible. Please go and look at them on the forum under show and tell, Three quilts for three granddaughters! I thrive on feedback and you guys are always so encouraging.

              As my neighbor Nancy says, it's warm here today but weather is coming in the next few days. You might get snow, Loonwatcher, but we might just be stuck with wind and rain. Yuck.

              On to a bit of cleaning interrupted by some sewing! No, that's not right! It has to be the other way around, doesn't it?

                Good morning -- I'm lucky to be off work until January 3rd. I hope to bake a fruitcake today and work on my DS quilt that I have to have pieced by mid-January to drop off to be quilted. Happy Tuesday to everyone!!

                  Blondie, enjoy your crazy times with your family. We are here when things settle down and want to hear all the news!

                  I have the week off from work so it will be cleaning up from Christmas, and simply just enjoying some down time. On New Year's we do a rotating dinner. Drinks and hors d'oeuvres at one house, soup/salad at another, etc. We got dessert this year so now i have to find something creative for that. hmmmm. This is tough because I can't and hate to cook.

                  Hugs to all and have stellar day today!

                    Definately not a white Chrismas here. Yesterday I was out in a sweater and felt quite comfortable. Not typical December in the snow belt! I go back to work tonight. I enjoyed having a couple extra nights off, I could visit with family without having to cut out early to go in to work. We had a lovely Christmas, nice dinner with DS and DIL Christmas eve and then taking gifts around to the GKs on Christmas Day. took a plate of kalacs into my mom. she really enjoyed it, it was her family's recipe.
                    i've got the cookies condensed into one container and have the others washed up to pack away. I was very good yesterday and didn't buy up any more. I like to pick up tins and plates afterwards when they are marked down to nothing so i have containers to use as gifts for next year. after going thru my box i found i still had a number of new ones left from last year. i did splurge and buy a new box for the tree ornaments. The one I've been using is cardboard and held together with a lot of packing tape and prayer!

                      hi Bella
                      i suggest a sylabub, takes minites, is light and FAB. Is an Elizabethan recipe and can be done in a flash.

                      Here is my recipe for lemon sylabub:-

                      To serve around 8 decent portions.....

                      A pint of double cream (do you call it thick cream?)
                      quarter pint of white wine
                      two tablespoons of sugar
                      zest and juice of 3 lemons

                      Slop everything into a bowl and beat until it makes peaks

                      taste in case needs more sugar (depends on the lemons)

                      spoon into nice glass dishes or wine glasses
                      chill
                      done

                        I'm headed over to England to share some goodies with Ms. Daisy and family. Back sometime . . . after I get my fill. Besides, my British friends don't put ice in their drinks - because it waters the booze down.

                        Got to try this, sounds great. I did make a trifle for lunch when my bro and sis were here before Christmas. Everyone loved it.

                        it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                            Hi Everybody!
                            The chaos has settled down for a bit here. We will have one more round on New Year's day with Mom's side of the family. So I have a few days to figure out where all of the new stuff that the youngster acquired will fit in. I now have a barking remote control dog and a HotWheels garage in my living room, along with a lot of other stuff.
                            I need to swamp out the sewing room too. I need my cutting table back! I'll squeeze that in around the laundry and the vacuuming.....

                            You all have a great day!
