Keeping on keeping on...etc

I have a decision to make.  Should I make this zigzag quilt modern or mix it with these trees...Help is needed because I cannot see it today...Maybe I should just put it all away until next year.?
 Then I am making some log cabin blocks...Why??  Who knows?  But, it is fun and relaxing...Fun wins out every time.
 Before my girl went home, we went in to JoAnn's big sale of all sales.  I saw this doggie flannel and knew right away who would love it.
 This pillowcase was delivered to the friend and her hotdog last night:)  Yup, it was a success, she loved it.
Mr. O'Quilts is sick.  He told me last night that he is too weak to put up the Christmas tree this year.  He cannot put up the big 7 foot fresh tree that we always have had for 33 years...He cannot put on the lights and he cannot put on the decorations.  The end of tradition. 
 I cried. 
 And, then...I moved on. 
 Looking now for a funky white artificial tree that works like an umbrella...push a button and it comes alive...lights and all...A woman just has to do what she has to do...Friends, please point me in the right direction...

Sending you a big hug Diane. I hope some one knows of a white Christmas umbrella tree, that sounds like a great idea. I really like the zig zag mixed with the trees because it's fun and different.

Christmas lives in the heart so I know you'll find it despite the tree. The umbrella tree sounds like a good solution. Christmas music also fills the house with the spirit.
Love your string trees! fun with the zig zags!

My heart is with you.
Traditions, like rules, are meant to be broken. Start new ones: a forest of white, ready-lit trees (I got mine at Kohl's last year), spaghetti or boiled shrimp for dinner, or pancakes!
Go with the flow & keep the moments in your heart -- I know you are doing the best you can.
I love the trees with the zigzags! Your new Holiday cuddle quilt!
