It's Raining, It's Pouring................

Rain again, and boy do we need it! It's so nice and cold, and yes my trees are still changing colors! Amazing. Usually by December they are bear naked, but this year they just are holding on to their leaves.
Spent yesterday and today decorating. As I told my friend Carol, it looks like Christmas has exploded here! My friend is here helping me again, but now she just poses......I've created a monster :-)! It was nice, when she was done posing she gave Santa a bath.

Tonight we are doing one of our late night sew-ins, and the world famous ball of cheese is already wrapped in the fridge and ready to go! Honestly, I can really make something besides that.

Only 5 more days till the drawing for the Christmas quilt. I'll be up early Wednesday and have it all boxed and ready to go as soon as I here from the winner! Later alligators!!

Love the quilt you used as a tree skirt! It's been raining up here the last couple days but finally cleared up. Good thing too because I want to get out on the patio this weekend and pin a quilt! I'm happy to see you seem to have gotten over calling your Friday night quilt group your "Monday" night quilters--you were scareing me for a while there! LMAO! Are you feeling better?

Boy, all of your rain is coming our way. I have a feeling it's going to turn into snow tonight!

Love the tree skirt. I've been wanting to make one, but can never decide which pattern I want to make!

Love the red/white tree skirt. That is so pretty and I love your little helper there. I think you have a new BFF!!! A four legged one.

It started raining here this evening - had lots of wind all day. I'm hoping it'll rain all week end.

Love the red and white under the tree! Very, very pretty.

Love the picture of your tree and 'helper'. Quite the poser, isn't she?
I would love to go to one of your late night sew-ins - it sounds like such fun! And, the world famous cheese ball - who could ask for more?
