It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like....

the holidays....

well, except for the fact that I have no photos to post today because I have serious time crunch issues, as in...there is still not enough time in my day.

There is a 10 foot tree in the front room that will be getting massive amounts of holiday lights this evening, with the help of Russia and Monster.

I am bribing them with Pepperoni Pizza and Coca Cola.

I hope I will have photos to share.

It should be hilarious.

It usually is.

I have also been doing copious amounts of sewing and I am now convinced that there is a certain female ghost in the house that hates me machine quilting.  She never bothers me when I am piecing or straight sewing, but every single, blasted time I begin to machine quilt she comes over to my machine and wrecks havoc.  She must think that I should hand quilt everything.  Well, that is just not happening.  Seriously, I am not making this up.  Benjamin Franklin, the cat...can even attest to these happenings.

That is, if Benjamin Franklin could speak "people", but he doesn't.  It's a good thing too, because then he would know there are reindeer antlers in his very near future.

Benjamin Franklin makes me miss Thomas Jefferson so much.  It makes my heart hurt.

This is Home Girl and I wish you a blessed day.  (oh, and I hope John Edwards rots in hell. RIP wonderful Elizabeth.)

Maybe she thinks you should be hand quilting.
I need your address.

I think you need to talk to her out loud when that happens...just acknowledge her presence, but you are going to do it this way. I'm dead serious. Pun intended. Dog antlers are on the horizon here too. Dog under bed for days....

Good luck with your quilt! And also your tree, which I'm sure will be beautiful. :)

I agree with you on John Edwards.
