As Good as it Gets...is Still Good

 Queen Bee Christmas...Love
Lynsey will be 11 in February, Dylan will be 10
Yet...denial and fancy thinking persist.
They just had to put out  cookies and milk and crack the fireplace door so Santa could get in.
Lynsey woke me up at 4 am to tell me that she did not think Santa had come...
Below, our Christmas Eve family picture...a little like the Krantz  *%%
Children acting out, folks missing, Oh, well...this year things were slack.
When my children were little...I made everyone wear a red or green shirt...
That is over!!  No one dressed for the holidays but Dylan.
It is OK...Times have changed, so have priorities.
Ava and her mother.  Everyone loves 20 month Ava!
So proud of my daughter in law.  She is doing a mighty fine job.
The large mug rug I made my son from his favorite fabric.
He was surprised and pleased.
Eamon's mug rug backing.
Trying to relax tonight...a tough call for this old lady.
My mind goes 24/7.  It always has.
Calm arrives thru rope bowl creativity.
Today was a one friend sewing day.
Linda sewed a very clever zippered pocket
into an existing bag...
A present from me to me....cat pens...love.
Bowl cozies I made for Christmas presents.
There we have it for the Boxing Day roundup!!

It looks like a joyful family gathering. I really like the fabrics you used in the mug rug.
