I just finished reading There's Something About Christmas by Debbie Macomber. It's a quick holiday light romance read with an interesting fruitcake theme (I finished it in 24 hours) . There are three recipes for fruit cake and I have saved them all. Have any of you read this book and made any of these fruitcakes? I would love to have a review if you did.
Yesterday the quilt patterns I ordered arrived.

I have a big pot of chili simmering on the stove so I now have the remainder of the afternoon to putter around in my sewing room. I am going to make a snow- covered tree trivet pad for my SIL as a hostess gift since we are going there for Christmas brunch. I made a few tree blocks last week that I am going to use as a border with the snowman block. I don't think I showed you these (if I did, please forgive me. I can never remember what I posted at which blog)
I am planning to make a different one for SIL. I am short of fabric for these blocks and I need quite a few more blocks for the border.
What is everyone else doing today? Getting ready for Christmas? Cooking? Wrapping gifts? Napping?
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
