Merry Christmas

Hope everyone has all those Christmas projects completed and all wrapped up...As for me, lets just say I still have one more day!  You see I don't stress so much anymore about the Holidays...I look forward to time with family. We all will gather on Christmas Eve at my Mothers house, when we all arrive with spouses, children, and grandchildren it is a FULL house.
Our traditions have changed a little over the years. We now have a traditional breakfast meal of country ham, tenderloin, biscuits, gravy, fried potatoes, and fried eggs...yum! yum!
Then when the kitchen is all clean we get to the gifts...which is mostly for the little ones & Mom of course...She loves having everyone back home...And she loves getting gifts.
Sometimes we walk up the street to the neighbors house where we spent a lot of time as's so good to see Ms. Doris & her family...Love them all!
Whatever your plans are this Christmas I hope that you have family and friends to share it with and remember the "Reason For The Season" with Joy in your heart.

May God Bless each of you and keep you safe..

Becky and Rick

A Quilter's Day Out!

This weekend the CEO and I took the day off and had a little fun...
We left early Saturday morning and drove down to Oak Ridge.
Where we met up with the Silver Threads & Golden Needles Quilt Group for lunch.
They introduced us to "The Soup Kitchen"  where the food was wonderful..Homemade soups, bread, salads & desserts...We will certainly be going back!
Next we presented a Trunk Show of a few of my quilts. 
They were all so wonderful. Then they surprised me with a gift that is perfect.
Thank You Sew much ladies..I Love it...

From there we came back to Rockwood  where the city was having their Holiday Tour of Homes!
Our first stop was the home of a quilter....Not just any quilter. But my friend Shirlie.
Her home was so warm and inviting...Oh! And there were a few quilts..
How cute?
Thank you Shirlie!
Then we went "antiquing" where we found a few treasures...
I love theAluminum trees....then I found a topper that I had to have...
Mother had one of these when we were kids...and it even works..on the way out the Carolers were coming in...
It was a great day...and now I'm inspired to do some decorating of my own...
