I survived!

I just realized that I have not posted since the beginning of December.  It has been a really busy month!  I got all my customer Christmas quilts done a little early.  Yeah!  I probably could have taken more then I did, but knowing that we were going to Disney, I wanted to make sure that I could get the ones that I committed to done and back before we left.   I got them done the week before we went so that was great and I got to relax while we were there.  I did take an additional quilt it that I did between my return from Disney and Christmas.  I had a little open space and and she need a quilt done by Christmas so it was a perfect fit for both of us.  I am hoping to get a little time this evening to post some pictures.   I quilted quite a few first quilts for different people.  It is refreshing to get to know new quilters, they are always nervous to give me the tops, but so excited to see their quilts.

The new house is progressing and I will try to get some pictures up of it as well.  The outside is painted, the drywall is in and the driveway and sidewalks were poured last week.

The current house is putting up a bit of a fight.  The oven quit working last week.  We went out and looked at new ovens and then called GE to see how much it would be to fix the current one.  The repairman was out today and we got a new glow strip installed.  At least now I don't have to buy a new range.  :)  I do have to buy a new over the range microwave, the repair took one look at it and said replace it, it will cost a lot more then a replacement for me to work on it.    I thought I had blown up my vacuum on Sunday.  It was just a case of it sucking up something that didn't agree with it.   Matt fixed it... I so love that man!  He could not fix the new flat screen TV with will no longer turn on.  He called Samsung and it is still under warranty.  They are actually sending a tech out to the house to fix it.  I was sure that I was going to have to pay to have it shipped to a service center.  What a nice surprise.  And before you think there is something up with house, Matt's truck is trying to die as well.  I think we just keep things too long.  :)

We had a wonderful Christmas with Matt's family.  His sister and brother-in-law rented a house in Duck, NC, on the outer banks, and invited his parents and us to come with them.  The twins are doing great and we all had fun spoiling them.  We are all looking forward to next year when they will be a little older and able to open presents.
