Just a short note!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Can you believe it? We got snow for Christmas!!! Never mind that it was the day after Christmas because Christmas is a season not just one day, right?
I'm working on another snowman wall hanging and I'm ready to get back to quilting my grandson's I Spy quilt. I bought one of those bags of fabric candy from Connecting Threads and I'm anxiously waiting to open them up and decide what to do with them. I'm not going to open them until I finish the wall hanging though. My New Year's Resolution is to finish some more of my UFOs.
I'm reading Cruel Intent by J.A. Jance and of course it's a great read! I don't want to put it down!
I'm also reading a new book by Alison DuBois called Secrets of the Monarch: what the dead can teach us about living a better life. Actually, I haven't gotten past the intro yet but it looks like it's going to be a great read too.
I better get on to something else now!

Oh my gosh! I'd ask if things could get any crazier but that would just be asking for trouble! Does anyone know what sleep is? I'd sure love some right now!!!

I finished the snowman wall hanging for the volunteer that helps me keep the children's books shelved at the library. Here's a picture!

We had our quilting Christmas party last night. What fun! I got a bingo game and we played for fat quarters, we had a lot of good food, hot chocolate and tea in gorgeous porcelain tea cups, and lots of good chocolate (we used Hershey's kisses for markers in the bingo game)!

Now I need to get all the presents wrapped. So much for the Christmas cards again this year! I feel glad to just get the tree up and decorated!

I'm anxious to get back to quilting my grandson's I Spy quilt but that will have to wait till after Christmas now.
I'm listening to the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull. I'm really enjoying it! Fairies and pixies and strange creatures are just fun!

I just finished Salvation In Death by J. D. Robb. Very good!!! I also just finished A Giant Problem which is #2 in the Beyond the Spiderwick Chronicles trilogy by Tony DiTerlizzi. I love his books and the illustrations are awesome!

I'm going to start Cruel Intent, the newest Ali Reynolds book by J.A. Jance when, if ever, I get home tonight!

Gotta go for now!

What am I doing?

I'm very new at this so this is a short practice run!

I love reading and sharing what I read with others. Soooo, right now I'm reading Salvation in Death by J.D. Robb. I love her characters! When I pick up a J.D. Robb book I have a hard time putting it down!

I'll have more to add later.
