Morning started well, I had my latte, I checked the internets and then I pulled out my Christmas Village and got it all set up.
Always brings such a smile to my face. I love looking at each individual building and imagining if I was that small, walking through this village, how I would feel.
Every little intricate sign, each street lamp or wagon. Just brings me joy!
By mid morning however, I started noticing that my husband was blowing his nose continuously, sneezing and starting to feel unwell.
The quiet, relaxing beautiful morning quickly began unraveling.
Within half an hour my Jasmine was sneezing, sniffling and blowing her nose. So I immediately put water to boil and readied a pot of tea.
I also, thankfully, decided to throw dinner in the crockpot, it was like I knew what was about to come my way.
With dinner taken care of, I started an assembly line of tea cups
Honey, lemon and cups being passed around, along with tissue boxes.
It seems the tea made everyone feel a little better, and soon hubby and daughter were off riding their bikes, while Nicholas stayed home with me.
I turned on the TV to the Hallmark channel and watched some more Christmas movies while finishing off all the cutting and block sewing for the quilt.
Once hubby returned, he sat with me on the floor and together we arranged, rearranged, moved, removed, switched this one and that one and on and on until we were both pleased with the end result.
And here it is....the quilt top.
By the time I took this photo my nose was running, I was the one running to the tissue box and sneezing like it was going out of fashion. Oh boy!
Needless to say, I packed everything away by row, numbered it all so I know what goes where and will sew all the rows tomorrow.
So thankful for taking care of dinner in the morning, as we were all able to sit down for a quick dinner
The rest of the night is going to be spent with my Kindle Fire. I've just finished "Captive Trail", it was a cute short read. And just started Livvie's Song.
Have you read any good books lately?
