I will be checking in the next few days, but I may not have time to leave you a comment with the last minute things I need to do and I have started on a new baby quilt which I will be working on until I get it done. I am suppose to have approximately a month and a half before the baby is do. They don't know if it is a boy or girl. She has chosen the quilt with momma, papa, baby brother and baby sister bears on it which will work for either.
I have never kept track of how long it takes me to do one because technically I never really wanted to know . I just figure my payment for the labor was the love and honor of getting to make them a baby quilt for their new little one.
I thought I would show you a set of pillowcases that I finished. I think that it is a little late to list them in my shop, but I may in my Christmas all year category. I just like the candy cane design. They are queen size. I have started doing the queen size because so many of the kids today are getting queen size bedroom outfits.
My grandson has reminded me that my surprise is at 3 o'clock on Christmas eve at his house. I can't come before then. I got my idea of what it is.
I talked with my oldest when we were having our freezing rain and snow. He had 77 degrees and partly sunny. I asked him if he missed this kind of weather. He said not at all. He rather liked wearing shorts and t-shirts when he was off work.
We had black ice this morning. There was several accidents because of it. People don't drive with common sense when we get the first bad weather. I admit the streets just looked wet, but I took my time because of the black ice. They were telling you on the television and radio to please drive carefully. I am just glad we didn't have to go to the city.
We will be spending Christmas Eve at our daughters and she has invited us back to their house on Christmas Day. She said we might as well help eat up the left overs.
If you travel this weekend, please be careful. Have a wonderful holiday.
