Post-holiday chill.

In the wake of the Holiday there comes quiet.  THIS is my favorite time.  It’s almost like getting up before anyone else is awake and taking a few stitches to start your day.

I enjoy that sigh of relief.  The travel is done.  The food has all been made. Leftovers are now being shared and savored.  Everyone is sated with gifts, love and goodness.  There is peace and pleasure.

Now, I can really look at my gifts.  I can spend time touching fabric, turning pages in a new book, reading directions for a new gadget, trying on that red sweater. I will bask in the love that the gift was given.  How thoughtful.  What a meaningful gift.

The magic of the Holiday season continues in our home, but without that frenetic undercurrent.  I can sip tea without making lists…and checking them twice. I hope your home is peaceful too.

Here are a few snapshots of our Holiday…

Progress continues on my Flower Pots quilt top

Lock and load!

I’m READY to go!!!  I think?!  I have everything I need packed.  From tuna fish to Thread Heaven and LOTS of stuff in between.  Lord have mercy!  If I forgot it I can either do without it, borrow it or buy it, right?!

I finished prepping my travel sewing…this is what I will be working on…at the airport, in flight and at the hotel.




I do not expect to have internet access while I am away.  I can barely use my cell (Trak) phone much less Tweet or anything else.  I’ll ‘see’ you when I return and I’ll post then!!!  ; )

Here I GO…

Piecefully, Pam
