"Twas the night before Christmas ...

When all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. ... Well, except for Chantal who is always up, and is silently sewing. :^D

Aaahhhh! It is soooo relaxing to just slowly stitch when all is done. How can one not sit and stitch for a while when the stress level is high?
marked a few blocks in anticipation of some sewing time
I have a few more batches of cookies to bake. They will adorned (for a short time, I'm sure) my in-laws' dinner table later tonight.  The baking will start when the boys finally wake up and they will bring it to their grandparents' place. My in-laws celebrate Christmas and we don't. We have our gift exchange on New Year's Day. The boys always knew the long and short story about the why and how. Anywho!

I had a relapse a while back and I've been off work. I am scheduled to get back to work on December 27th. And that is my biggest stress right now. I'm trying not to think about it while the needle goes up and down on the quilt. Instead, I think of all of you, my readers, and pray you have a safe and joyful holiday season. So get the eggnog out and enjoy some time with family and friends.


Stitching on the Dark Side. :^D 
Joining Kathy at Kathy's Quilts for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Come see the beautiful stitches made by some very talented quilters. Kathy also have a wonderful giveaway today.

P.S. We had a snow storm last night. It makes everything so bright this morning. Beautiful!
Unfortunately the new landlord didn't cut the weeds last Fall so we have to look at this all winter long.

It looked much better last year with the other landlord.

Oh well! I can always close the kitchen's curtains. :^D


  1. Deep breath and keep stitching...and good luck going back to work next week!

  2. At least the snow makes everything look clean and white out your window! Enjoy a lovely, relaxing day and some stitching today, Chantal!

  3. J'ai cru comprendre que tu ne fêtais pas Noël alors bonnes vacances avec beaucoup de petits points...c'est tellement relaxant !
    Gros bisous Chantal. Prends soin de toi !

  4. This is the perfect way to reduce stress... stitch it away with those lovely feathers! Take good care of yourself and relax!
