Christmas Eve is here!

Good Morning Everyone!
Merry Christmas!
It is so cold out there right now that I don't want to leave the house, but I do have some errands to run today and then its home to get ready for our family get together tomorrow. I can't wait, this is one of my favorite days of the year!
Thursday I finished my Christmas shopping, then I treated myself to a haircut and got my nails done. I also found out on Thursday that at the beginning of the year I will be working a 40 hour week for the post office for about 8 weeks. I haven't worked a 40 hour week in about 3-4 years. So this will be a change for me, but I can do this! If you don't hear from me for a while you know why.
Yesterday I got to spend the day with a sweet little girl - my nieces little girl. Her name is Amaya. I should have taken a couple of pictures to show you, but I took some on my phone and now can't figure out how to get it on my blog. Some day I will figure out all this technology.

I have been working on American Flag Quilt Sampler this past week. I thought that I would get bored with it and go back to We Three Kings but I am still enjoying it so here is my update of the past week.
Finished New Jersey on Wednesday  12/18/13

Finished Georgia in the 19th 

Finished the Star on the 23rd

What I have completed as of  yesterday morning.
I started Connecticut last night, and I should have it done this evening. Only 8 more states of the original 13 states added to the Union. Then page one of four will be done. They do stitch up pretty quickly.

Well its time to jump in the shower and then get busy with some cleaning and my errands that need to be ran.
Hope everyone has a Blessed Christmas!
I love spending time with my family!

Happy Holidays
and
Happy Stitching
Denise
