Christmas Quilt - In

image from Graphics Fairy. 

Since moving to St Louis, the holidays haven't been the same.  To be more precise, my ability to mentally prepare for them has not been the same.  More years than not the weather is beautiful here.  Fall comes later and Spring comes earlier than I am used to. St Louis is warmer than our last address which was a bit North of here.   Here it is Thanksgiving and the weather is just starting to feel like I should be getting ready for Halloween.   I have found myself shopping for Poinsettias in sandals.  I just haven't made that transition.  

This year I am attempting to make a mental shift early enough to enjoy the season.  I'm making a quick Christmas quilt and I am playing the all Christmas Music radio station on my computer.  Join me on my Sunday night Christmas quilt in.  The coolest thing is that you can be listening to the same music at the same time.  How cool is that?  (OK, the internet has been amazing for quite some time now, but once in a while it become obvious to me.) 


  1. Thanks for the link to the Christmas music! I will check it out. I've been feeling "Christmassy" for a while, as I've worked on a Christmas craft swap package. Looking forward to seeing your quilt!

  2. Oh gosh Char. I know exactly how you feel. This year, the kids are going to Indiana between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Pedro won a Fulbright Scholarship and he has an obligation for two months of research - so of course he's taking the girls with him. (3 weeks now and 5 next summer). I'm missing the US like nobodies business and with Bear in Afghanistan, well...it's just not gonna be the same. BUT...I can and will be happy.
