I won a giveaway! and No mom please don't make me sit on his lap! and a finish for CCQC!

Monday I picked up a parcel that I knew was from her! Unfortunately I had to get a battery for my camera before I could take a picture! I am so excited to have won a giveaway, and very excited to have won this one. It is a honey bun in the Nostalgia line, which I love and she included a packet of Looking Back 2 1/2 inch squares. I am going to have fun with both of these!

Thank you Michelle! Thank you!

That battery came just in time too. I knew it was going, flashing at me on our weekend trip to California, and it totally conked out right here...

Luckily I had the new one in my pocket! These are GD2 and 3 and they did not want to sit on Santa's lap! The two year old however was very chatty from three feet away. Hi HO HO! (that's what she calls him) I want a ball, and a doll and a choo choo train! See my pretty dress, and look I got painted nails just for Christmas! and on and on. Then the drama of getting near him. Afterward, she wanted to go back and show him the picture of her with him. But no sitting on the lap or anywhere near him. She just wanted to talk!

So far I have one finish for Charming Girls Quilt Club. I finished my table runner that I made experimenting with different combinations using a 60 degree triangle. One more to go, those darn prairie points, but I still have another week to get upstairs and get it done!
Merry Christmas to all!!


  1. What a fun gift from Michelle! And, I love that table runner -- VERY Pretty! Your tree is gorgeous, too! And, what sweet little grand-daughters. Maybe next year they'll be ready to get a little closer to santa??!!??

  2. Congratulations on your win! I love the colours in the table runner and thanks for sharing the funny story, it could all be different next year.

  3. That is so cute,and very funny! Another Christmas memory to file away! Your table runner is beautiful.

  4. Oh Can I ever relate! I have a little talker who can't wait to see santa...until it is her turn! Actually this is the first year she didn't cry & hopped right up there...I actually like the screaming their head off pictures :)

    Your table runner looks great! Wow! I think someday I would love to is a little too crazy right now....but someday!
