We had a super rainy day on Thursday the wood burning stove was going all day and my girlfriend Linda came over. I had made some ham soup and it was so tasty. I am not a soup person but when the weather is cold it's wonderful to have a bowl of something hot.Here are the pictures from our Christmas rug hooking party.It was a fun great time with my friends.
This is an antique doll Stephanie picked up on a trip back east
Look at the details of this little doll
Little boxes with antique material covering them.
Pam was busy quilting

Ladies would wear these over their skirts
It is very very old
I have small Christmas trees all over the house and he was enjoying taking off the ornaments and racing around my table.Grandpa was his favorite person of the day. I never knew a man's watch could keep a little boy so fascinated.Jack just kept touching his grandpa's arm and fiddling with the big watch. It was such a precious time with him and his parents.We were celebrating Megan's belated birthday.I actually made a knitting bag for her and call me crazy but I lined it!
Another of her presents was a long skinny bag I made for her for her long knitting needle.One of the days mishaps was a rookie grandma mistake.
I accidentally left a crystal light drink on the edge of the table and yes you guessed it Little Jack grabbed it and had crystal light all over him. Jack was howling and thank goodness for a change of clothes.Then it was time to have our time with Jack!
The parents were gone for about three hours and we had him all to our selves.When Jack left to go home the blocks were all over the place. Jack's rocking chair was upside down and every crock I had was upside down and contents turned over!
Maulie was tired of being stepped on and my back was aching but oh what a wonderful day! Jack did take a nap on me and I am embarrassed to say I fell asleep holding him.Hubby and I were watching a program we had recorded and when I awoke it was over and Jack was still asleep on me. What a blessing this little guy is!I am sure I am not the only one hugging their little ones a little tighter these days.
