    I've cleaned up the sewing room and put everything away. I have to get all the quilts I have done/ready for the abuse center to get them delivered. Maybe next week?? My sewing area is now ready to put up a tree and get the festivities going..

    And I have made a mess at the kitchen table... getting Christmas Cards made for this year... I spent my Birthday down in bed with a flu bug... but I'm recovering nicely. Love those vitamin drinks.. Emergen-C. I know some of you have your tree up already but mine is still packed away with all the other decorations.. Will be decorating next week..
    (Have I enough "next weeks" to be ready for Santa??) I sure hope so..

    Are you ready yet???

    I have zero decorations out yet. We did not get our tree yet, we get a real one. Our view resembles yours--and currently snowing like mad. Was going to sew today but DH has a blazing fire going and my sewing room is in the back of the house, too far away, so I am alternately checking all the Sunday newspaper ads and the Forum. Tomorrow I am going Christmas shopping all day with my sister!! So now I am making lists. I might be a little behind but somehow I will get it all together in time!

    Our tree is up and decorated. What little shopping we do is done. I'm writing cards a little at a time. We try to keep Christmas as simple as possible.

    Same here, house is decorated and trees are up trying to keep it simple and stress free to enjoy it. Sewing the favors for our Pilot Club holiday benefit, (mugs rugs) that are very simple so no stress there. I have to make 30 of them already have a dozen or so done. Will start baking cookies next week and put them away. Have a few surprises to get in the mail next week. Starting to think about the Christmas dinner menu have 12 coming for dinner. Thinking a pork roast with an apple glaze, sauerkraut, and roasted potatoes.

    This may be the first year we don't decorate for Christmas. I still have two whole floors of the house torn up with the floor remodeling project. The contents of all three bedroom closets are in the living room on the sofa and chairs. The china cabinet and contents are also in there. The dining room is full of boxes of hardwood. If anything can go wrong, it has gone wrong and the project is still not complete. The contractors are supposed to be here for the next 4 days getting this done. We will see.

    Our youngest is the only one still at home, but he's 17 and understands we may not get through with the project in time to get the tree up. The older two and their families are trying to figure out how to plan around this because they always come here from Christmas. We'll know better this week what to expect, but we are hoping for the best. I haven't done any shopping yet and couldn't begin to guess where my cards are.

    We thought we started this project in plenty of time to be done by now, but sometimes you just have to roll with it. I'm thinking of playing Christmas music all week for the contractors - maybe they get the hint!

    Like Joceyln........we have no decorations out yet. Maybe tomorrow. Trying to force myself to do the quilting on my Grinch quilt today ......maybe Elf on a Shelf could finish it for me. It's been raining yesterday & today & probably will tomorrow.

    It has been raining here since last night. We are all happy to see it. Hopefully this will finish putting out the fires in the Park. The situation in Gatlinburg is about the same. 13 dead, 80 injured and 1000 structures damaged or gone, mostly gone. The clean up and rebuilding start tomorrow.

    I haven't started Christmas decorations or cards. We usually don't decorate since we go to FL on Christmas Day or the day after. No more trips to FL, so I guess I had better get upstairs and see what I have! I'm about finished with DDIL's elephant, and that's all the sewing I have to do before Christmas. We've had our contractor out all last week doing some handy man type jobs for us. We're getting new windows about mid January. Our double panes have leaked, and I can barely see out of them. A new shower door and we'll be back in business for another year. Mike built the house for us, and comes by about once a year to do repairs. He is a treasure!

    You are in Central Illinois and it's snowing? Ugh! So it is probably headed this way. Not ready for snow and ice and cold...can we skip winter and jump right into spring? Christmas decorations? Nope, not up, not sure they will be put up. Just not feeling it...plus, I hurt my back a couple of weeks ago, so it's harder to do things.
    LIVE well, LAUGH often, LOVE much

    Hugs, Pat

    Tree is up with a few gifts under it. Hubby went shopping on Friday. I did some shopping on the weekend but not for hubby yet. I need to get to the city.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Our tree is up and decorated. My dh and I made Christmas cards yesterday and had a lot of fun. Some of the shopping is done; I'm still nagging certain people to update their wish lists. None of the wrapping is done.
