And the family is gathering at our house....Tri tip, crab legs, au gratin potatoes, and a few other goodies are on the menu. Grandpa is bringing home made pecan pie. Should be a feast! Games and good times will also be served......we're excited. We're trying the no hype approach to Christmas this year........Last year at this time we were in Ohio for Christmas and my heart still feels warm and cozy when I think of the candle lit service I attended with Erin's family. Life is an accumulation of memories....the only thing that lasts.....need to make them special.
Just had to share this picture of Tucker all tucked into Abbie's sweatshirt. He's a snuggler.
I love those little dogs.
Pine and Holly is a table runner which I made in 2002. It looks lovely out all during the winter season. The background is wool and beautiful Diamond Textiles, and of course the design is in wool.
I'm debating about making this into a bolster pillow.....it would look great on my bench. This pattern will be a giveaway today.....to the first two people who respond with their address.
firstname.lastname@example.org Wendy Held was the winner of the Quilt Mania magazine......I'm waiting for her address.

I'm wishing for you a joyful, happy hearted holiday time with your family and loved ones. I will return to blogging on Monday December 29th.
