I also finished three stockings and they are now hanging on the stairs in the entry with the rest of the stockings. It is beginning to look like Christmas around here!
I'm trying the 2011 UFO Challenge by Patchwork Penguin this year - my friend Linda said it really helped her to finish a lot of her UFO's this past year - and I started Quiltville's Roll, Roll Cotton Boll mystery - so I have plenty to work on! I never get bored! If only I had a couple more hours each day!
Hubby worked on the playhouse for the grandkids today - he is putting the door on. We need to do a little more outside painting once he gets that done, and then we'll tackle the inside painting and finish the inside trim. Hubby has to build the steps to the loft yet, but he has them designed. My youngest grandson said he wanted to pick the inside colors - he wanted Granddad's favorite colors - red and black. (My husband is a graduate of Texas Tech - those are the school colors!) You can be sure that those colors will somehow be incorporated in the decorating scheme - what grandson wants - grandson usually gets from granddad!

My daughter and son-in-law and family will be here next week - we are very excited. It has been a while since they came for Christmas. We have plans for a family portrait to be made and for lots of fun "Family Game Nights" while they are here! Can't wait! I'm stocking up on easy to prepare meals, and trying to catch up at work so I can take off a lot while they are here.
The annual Christmas party for my quilting group is tonight and I'm getting ready to make some graham cracker praline bars to take - they are yummy. The food is always wonderful at this party - these women are such fantastic cooks, and I enjoy their company so much. It will be a relaxing evening.
