Fiona, My Awesome Christmas Gift!

Let me try this again....I wrote a post last night, couldn't find the spellcheck icon on the updated BLOGGER bar so thought maybe in PREVIEW? NOPE. Then don't know what post poofed into cyber space. Looked in edit tab...NOPE. Hhhmmm.

SO my treasured gift for Christmas was an adorable 2 yr old orange tabby my kids adopted from our county shelter for me! Fiona is a little peanut. She has made herself at home and all the other pets seem to have accepted her.

Much visiting and overeating accomplished in the last few days. All went well but glad it is over. I have really simplified where I can to relieve the stress of the season. I cherish time spent with people I care about, chatting, playing games and being in that moment.

Creating has taken a back seat, only able to whip up a few pillowcases for gifting in the last week. I need to make a bag for a friend today. CQ stitching here and there. I like this twisty SRE flower I added to my challange CQ for ME due Feb. 1st. The Kaffe Fassett fabrics my friend Christy picked up, literally, off the floor (what a pal!) are making an exciting CQ piece!

I have learned:

  1. BLOGGER update has me confused. Where oh where is spellcheck?
  2. Reading The Help. So far really good.
  3. My son just read Bill Bryson's The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, A Memoir. Laughed out loud. I have read Bryson before and love his sense of humor. Next on my list.
  4. Barbra Streisand wanted Elvis to play John Norman Howard in A Star is Born, one of my favorite movies because of Kris Kristofferson.
