Another Great Christmas lots of news things as you can tell by the Chaos. Far more than we really need. Mom loved her Red and White Christmas Twisted Log Cabin and I loved the Double Wedding ring my husband bought me. Merry Christmas to all of you, and your families.

We gave my coworker Eleanor her retirement party. Lots of food, a guestbook, a beautiful photo album for her to take with her, a great ipod, gift card for music and the quilt. She was thrilled with all of them. Eleanor and I are the two in the office who watch coronation street religiously so I will miss our morning updates but I sure wish it was me who was retiring.

One of my co-workers is retiring, her last day is Christmas Eve. One of the gals at work talked me into making a signature quilt for her and I had thought it would be a small wall hanging size. However I failed to calculate the size, thinking I would wing it. Now it is the size of a small lap quilt.
I still have to sandwich and quilt it but believe me it will be very simple (in the ditch). I do not have time for anything else. As you can see it is all blue (my stash) and muslin with the exception of one Maple leaf square. Eleanor is moving to England on Christmas day and I thought the red maple leaves would remind her of Canada.
