Life has definitely taken me to places I never thought I would go to....but nothing more exciting than where I am right now! Welcome to my world...

Christmas by the pool!






Ok, back in form....and raring to go. Have to sort packing but have at least spoken to a real live person on phone...who is passing me off to someone else....to set up appt. I hate layers of people to deal with! But it is the way it is. Have been working on dear daughters baby quilt...baby due in less than two months!All hand applique!Yikes...need to get with it. And I do have photos of dear baby....Chloe.She is 13 days old. I think she may be a blend...of dad and mom. We'll have to wait and see.


My husband got into the Christmas spirit..and we have always tried to have all family members wear some sort of silly hats...its a tradition for us...and we got our friends to do it also. Now I had to share the pretty awful photo of my white legs...just to show I did get in the pool. Our friends have a lovely home on the golf course....and that was a bonus...as our hostess had been saving hubby all the good golf balls that ended up in her garden or pool!What a treat for him! He kept going through the bag of balls....there must have been about 50 in the goody bag for him.Guess now he may understand how I feel about fabric! I did find a couple of little things to send my winner (50th post) ...will write out names tomorrow and do the lucky draw then. Thanks for signing up. I have been asked to teach a scrapbook class in the morning with the farm wives in Tarka, its always a good time! And they feed me lunch, so I get to try recipes out. Yum! Have enjoyed seeing all of your photos of Christmas...but this is a fun change for Christmas. I will miss the lazy days of summer when I come home in a month. Will post more later.....when I get more time. Have a lovely weekend. I am hoping to sew if I can fight through the stack of boxes in front of the machine! Enjoy your weekend! Colleen

If you can't have a white Christmas . . . then I think by the pool is the best and most delightful alternative *s* Baby Chloe is darling - whomever she takes after.

Chloe is very cute, good luck with the move. I'd avoid Crown removals - they moved us from Australia, and were a disaster...

Oh my goodness, what a beautiful baby!

Aahhh, that pool and green everywhere looks so good this morning as I gaze out my window to see dirty snow and ice.

Happy packing! and wishing all goes well with your trip back home.
