Tick ... Tick ... Tick.......

No it's not a bomb, unless you call Christmas a bomb, I think the phrase "It's the Bomb" went out of style a while ago. As I type I can hear the clock ticking down the days, hours. minutes and seconds that are left to get my projects done. I thought I would put up this post and not revisit until Sunday Stash Report. I spend entirely too much time on the computer and time is getting short. By Sunday evening I will need to complete 3 crayon bags, a table topper and a pillow case. Hmm, we'll see what I can do. Yikes, I have a dentist appointment in between now and then too! The placemats were a success, all of the recipients seemed pleased as were the tablerunner recipients. I made a huge pot of vegetable beef soup, ceasar salad, french bread, cranberry oat bars and pumpkin pie cake. Let me tell you there wasn't much of anything left over!! Oh except salad, I bought too much, so somebody brought chicken in the next day and we had chicken ceasar salad and french bread for lunch! Not much to write about tonite. This may be strange, but in the category of "Things that make you go HMMMM?"........ The little tin in the picture came from Joann's filled with cookies. I think I bought it last year on clearance, it could have even been the year before. Check out this year's "Christmas Past" line, it's a perfect match!! Kinda like what came first, the chicken or the egg? Ok, now this one isn't as close, but it is ribbon that again I got on clearance at Joanns last year, and it sure reminds me of the Holly Jolly line. Ok, now that I've given you something to think about, I'm going to get bizzzzy, where's my Starbucks, I'm going to need gallons!!

I guess you are still recouping from all your Christmas prep. I really liked your table runners, very different. Nice catch on the "creation" of new things, lol.
