'Tis the Season

to be busy, busy busy! I know that I haven't posted in a long time, but this has been one of the busiest social holiday seasons that I can remember. There was a two day overnight trip to see the Brandywine Museum, Long Wood Gardens and Winterthur....spectacular! I have been on a day trip to NYC to spend the day, see the sights, dinner at the famous 21 Club and a Broadway show. Took a trip to Hartford to see the Governor's mansion all decked out for the holidays.....fabulous! Saw Amahl and the Night Visitors at the local college, the Nutcracker at the local High School, out to lunches and dinners and cocktail parties and more to come this week. Of course I did the usual decorating (I do a LOT), gift shopping, wrapping, baking, etc. Whew! I'm not complaining because I love to be busy and I love to get dressed up and go out. But it's left me little time for the studio. I'm not one of those people that can work in 15 minute spurts. I like large blocks of time to immerse myself in a project. I did make a small art quilt this week and I will post a picture, maybe tomorrow.

In the meantime, enjoy this jolly little Santa from my Santa tree. I put up three trees. The one in the family room is just 4 feet high and it is decorated with red Santas of all kinds, some glass, some fabric, some wood, etc.

I hope you all are enjoying this wonderful season.

What a delightful time you have been having! Amahl is a MUST every year if I can be so lucky. After five parties in two days with five different groups, I'm happy to be a homebody again!
