This blog is the collision of my hobbies (scrapbooking & quilting) as well as my professional interests.

Counting down the days
Well it is getting close enough to start counting down the days until Christmas. That means I have to finish a bit of baking, binding sewing and house cleaning. We had a fiasco with the steam mop the other day, so washing the floor is the biggest job of the housecleaning that remains to be done. I think I will have to get down on my hands and knees to do it since the other options beyond the steam mop don't seem to work very well. Needless to say, I am not too keen on it. While the marble floor looks good, its a pain in the butt to clean.

I spent some time last night putting out the rest of the Christmas quilts. Since moving I still have quilts packed up so I needed to do a bit of a reconnaissance to find all of them. But the search was worth it and they have added a finishing touch to things. Now if the flower arrangement (s) I have my eyeballs on at Michael's will go on sale for 60% next week like I hope for, I will call it done. What about you? Are you ready for Christmas festivities?
