Christmas is for children. But it is for grown-ups too. Even if it is a headache, a chore and nightmare, it is a period of necessary defrosting of chill and hide-bound hearts. –Lenora Mattingly Weber

Right about now I'd like to be sitting on a beach in Hawaii {wearing a giant sun hat, sunglasses, SPF 50 and a swimsuit cover-up to my ankles} with Mr. Bug, sipping a fruity drink with a little pink umbrella while reading a good book and listening to the sound of the waves hitting the sand. Sounds very relaxing, doesn't it?

What I'm up to is the very opposite of a day at the beach. There's still too much to do for Christmas. I've trimmed my list considerably, trying to keep it realistic, but I've got so many ends to tie up before the 25th hits that I'm passing myself coming and going. Mind you, I'm having a marvelous time putting it all together, but I wish I had more time. I hope to have a few finishes to show tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy this lovely Christmas greeting from the sandy beaches to you.

I've decided next year to just start in October, and totally ignore the junk from folks who think it's too early to decorate and stuff. I love it, I should enjoy it!

We will be in Hawaii in two weeks! I can't wait! I played this song for my husband and we giggled. :)

I have quilted my last project that I will get done before Christmas; I've got one that will be late. :-(
