Have You Seen This?


For all of you book readers out there, I wanted to mention that Jennifer Chiaverini has a new book out. My friend Eileen mentioned something to me about it before, but I thought she was talking about last year's The Christmas Quilt. All I can say is that I'm SOOOOOO glad this is The New Year's Quilt because I sure don't have time to read it by Christmas!

Although yes, I DO have the Christmas spirit now, I'm looking forward to winding down a little after Christmas and before the New Year--time to relax and enjoy just doing whatever strikes my fancy, whether it's laying around all weekend in my jammies and reading the new Jennifer Chiaverini book or working on the mystery quilt my online Thimbleberries group will be starting right after Christmas.

How about you? Are you ready for Christmas? I can't claim that I'm quite ready yet, but I've finished my shopping (my stop at Borders today netted me the Chiaverini book!) and it looks like I will actually meet my deadlines on all my other Christmas projects. Tonight I'll work on binding that red and white quilt. Tomorrow night we have my office Christmas dinner to attend. After that, I have a quilt to quilt for my husband's aunt--and I CAN show you that one because I'm sure she doesn't read my blog! But I'll post photos when I get to it.

Thanks for taking a little time out of your busy holiday schedule to stop by and visit with me!

Ready for Christmas? I've barely even started!

I recently read the book - it is a quick read, and helps us remember some stories from the past books.

I just picked up my copy from Barnes and Nobels today. Plan on starting it right after Christmas.

Geeze, I've had mine copy for weeks not but haven't taken the time to read it. Seems like a good Christmas week project. My halls are decked and I'm almost ready. :)

I love that book series, but I am far behind on reading and purchasing those books, so now I have another one to add to the list!
I'm glad you have a handle on Christmas - it feels good, doesn't it? I'm not quite ready, but I'm gettin' there!

Luckily, in our book club, we're reading a Jennifer C book. I still haven't read any of her books. My bad. I'm looking forward to getting this one. I might have to buy a set!
