The holiday season has begun and with it the fun and excitement of gathering with friends and family.
Friday night was spent with both. It was the last day of school and the last day of work, and how did we choose to celebrate? We took two dear friends (hello Dave & Sandy!!!) out for dinner at Earl's and then off to the Yukon Arts Centre where we spent a wonderful evening with Mr. Tom Jackson!!!!!
Tom Jackson was here, along with his band, and his show "'Twas in the Moon of Wintertime". It was simply beautiful. That man can sure tell a story. The evening ended with the entire audience standing in the dark, singing Silent Night. I have shivers just remembering it.
Saturday was a quick trip to the airport to send off hubby and oldest daughter on their Christmas present. What was their present? A trip to San Francisco and tickets to Monday Night Football!!! I tried to explain that the stadium holds about 40,000 people. How many are in the entire Yukon Territory? 30,000. You could put our entire territory into that stadium and still have room for a small city. It`s crazy!!!
It`s ok Santa, she`s already received a very big present...socks and underwear will be fine.
Lisa and I have been enjoying our time together. We baked bannock and cookies with my good friend Estelle. You may recall Estelle as my quilting buddy and ambusher of unsuspecting non-sewers. I love her, LOL...I believe her goal is to turn non-sewers into quilters, one ambush at a time.
Lisa also put up the tree all by herself, trimmed it, and built a gingerbread house. Man that girl loves the holidays!
I spent a day sewing Christmas gifts...sorry can`t show photos just in case!!!
I can however, show you a small wallhanging I finished last week. Here it is hanging in my work station.
(if you look closely you may see my Bent Creek cross stitched piece...sorry so small!)
I still have a bit more sewing left to do tonight, tomorrow is a staff pizza lunch followed by our Secret Santa exchange (thus the last minute sewing). Yum.
Have a great week everyone, thank you for stopping by. Merry Christmas, Vivian
