Hi everyone, I have been bizzzzeeee lately working on upcoming projects and doing all the usual holiday stuff. The photo below shows what my kitchen has been looking like 90% of the time lately. A mess!! The countertops are piled with baking goods and freshly made cookies, waiting to cool and be frozen for holiday cookie trays. I think I've made 9 batches of cookies and candies so far in the last week. I had them all stacked neatly in containers in the deep freezer....that is til Eric got his 10 point buck. He decides he wants to get the deer head/rack mounted....so guess what's in my deep freezer now? Yep, a deer head with antlers poking out of a black trash bag. Niiiiiice. I took everything out that I could and dispersed the items between two other freezers. I'm a little grossed out that my freezer is now a frozen cemetery. I'm sure that if you're not a hunter's wife,you're totally gagging right now. And I'm definitely sure that if you ARE a hunter's wife, you can totally relate to my story. Okay, onto the quilting. My sewing machine has now taken over the dining room table because there's no room for it yet in my craft room. I think I'll make the girls share a bed and I'll just take over one of their bedrooms for a sewing room. They would LOVE that.......not! Below is Jordan's little Christmas fabric stash that my mom gave her. I told her no more fabric than what would fit in a shoe box. My mom used to be a crafter and has TONS of fabric. I knew she'd try to send the entire stash home so I set the shoe box limit. Jordy came marching in with a Mudd shoebox packed full of Christmas fabric!!
Okay, that's all I have for today. I must get back to some photo editing and baking and find time to take a shower in there somewhere. Josey has a basketball game and I am psyched up for it. Love the basketball.
Note: If you have any quilting storage tips, I'd love to hear them! Especially for those long rules, I've already nicked two corners on one because I dropped it in the parking lot at the quilt shop. Dang.
