A moment on Monday with Nancy

My oh my!  Where has the time gone?  I've been so busy getting things ready for Christmas I haven't even had a chance to check in with all of you.  But then y'all may not have had a chance to check in with me either.  I truly do love this time of year.  More so this year than in times past.  Must be that getting older helps you to look at things a lot differently.  There are times when I actually believe I know whats really important and let everything else go.  Which brings me to my next paragraph!

You all know what the holidays are like.  You have a room (or two) thats falling down around you and you are oblivious to it because you are focussed on what is really important.....Like making your first ever....wait for it....SOCK MONKEY! I have had so much fun making this one that I am convinced that the next ones will even be better because I won't have such a time restraint.

Ready to wrap up for grandson in Colorado. :)

I know that sock monkeys aren't the most important thing in life, but yesterday for me it was. The time I spent making that monkey brought me real joy. :)

Here's to hoping you all the Merriest of Christmas's!!!! 

My best to you all,
Happy Quilting,

A Moment on Monday with Nancy

Whew!!!  What a whirlwind Thanksgiving!  We made a big circle visiting kids, grandkids and even a sister!  And boy did I have fun!  I even got to visit a quilt store in Albuquerque!  So much fun but it went way too quick!  My mother used to say that her kids are catching up to her......well I now really know what she meant.  How in the heck did my kids get so old?  heheheheh

While in Oklahoma I was able to visit with a sister.  That doesn't happen often at all.
Here we my sister and one of my daughters
(even captured my two year old grandson)
How fun it was to see everything through the eyes of a two year old for a day!  He gets around at top speed and reminded me why a momma needs to be young!

I sure am anxious to get back to the shop tomorrow. Teresa is back and I can't wait to hear about her travels.  Plus, it's always like Christmas there after I've been away for a while. So many new things to look at.  I'm working on a new project at the store and I love the layer cake I'm using.  It shouldn't take me too much longer before I'm far enough on it to share pictures.

You know, as much fun as it is to go and visit relatives, it always feels so good to get back home and back to a routine. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  

My very best to you all,
Happy Quilting,
