Merry Christmas!

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas! This is a shaggy quilt I made for Christmas. That Australian sun is awfully bright. The colours don't look anywhere as rich in this photo as they do in real life. I just love these quick shaggy quilts. The one I made a couple of years ago is pressed into service almost every day - even in summer. I would like to make a bunch more for my house one day. This one went off to Christmas at Mum's house, which we always celebrate on Christmas eve. I wasn't able to go because I woke up in the middle of the night last night with a tummy bug. I'm hoping to feel better tomorrow. Grandson started the tummy bug earlier this week and he is an excellent sharer because his Mum and Dad have both had it as well as Mr 9 and myself.

This year has really rushed by, but I am really glad that it is nearly over. I love the whole ending and beginning thing. The whole new start thing. I never really made any goals for 2009, just couldn't get my head around it last year, but I feel that 2010 will be different. So, I have a week or so to ponder about and set some goals for 2010. Enjoy your Christmas break!

That was a shame, that you couldn't go yourself to deliver the quilt. Hope the bug has flown away and doesn't catch more family members ;-).
Enjoy your Christmas!

Hope you're feeling better today. I haven't really thought about goals for 2010 just yet, as you say something to ponder over the next week.
Hope you and your family have a Happy Christmas and a safe New Year.
take care

That is not good unwell at Christmas. It must be a very sharing bug as my niece and her husband have both been unwell with it. Love the shaggy quilt.
