Holiday Table Setting

My holiday table setting. Those yellow/gold pears do not photograph well. They are not nearly so bright as they appear here. I have gold stockings with elves hanging on each chair. My husband and I had a romantic breakfast here yesterday morning.

Snowman Quilt

Christmas Quilt
I put my Christmas quilt on my bed. It is thick, warm and oh, so snuggly on a cold winter night. The center snowman block is made from Christal Carter's book, Holiday Happenings. It is fun to play with log cabin blocks. I think I may make an Easter Bunny one next.

I have not bought one Christmas gift yet--not a single present. I probably should drag myself out shopping today. Yesterday I baked some cookies--chocolate thumprints filled with caramel. I made 4 dozen, which took about two hours. Last night my husband accidentally knocked them over and spilled every one onto the floor. Now I have no cookies as he threw every one in the garbage. There is no way he would eat anything that touched the floor. I am feeling just a tad discouraged.

I am also discouraged because NOBODY is reading my blog! How do you get readers????
