Christmas Comes Early

It’s been a whirlwind of activity here at the Willow Ridge Press family studios.  Thanksgiving was a gourmet feast, as my husband and I both love to cook.  He made Emeril Lagasse’s turkey recipe from his new show Emeril Green, and I made the traditional cornbread dressing, made with whole grain cornbread.

Then it snowed on Dec. 1st!  I’ve been Twittering almost daily, and I shared about our turkey sightings, snowball fights, and hot chocolate.  Now the news is there’s a mountain lion in our midst.  Yikes.  That’s almost like having a bear in our garage, which we really did about five years ago.

I was gone all day yesterday on a business trip.  I played with fabric all day long, looking through the best and most current fabric samples from major manufacturers, all headed your way in beautiful designs you’ll be seeing in the near future.  Had a great ladies lunch, drove three hours home to hugs and kisses.

My son asked me this week if I was excited about Christmas coming.  Wow, what a loaded question.  He anticipates all the magic and joy, and we moms/wives/sisters/daughters anticipate the work!  Well, I am excited, and I’ve been working hard with my friends and asking them for the most wonderful gifts for you.  Yes, you!

If you subscribe to my newsletter you’ve known about this for awhile, and the time is here!  It’s a Quilts & Creativity Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway!  Starting next week, Dec. 8, I’ll be giving away gifts for you, and all you have to do is comment on this blog.  I’ll randomly choose one comment each day as the lucky winner.  And the gifts?  Great stuff like fabric, books, notions, threads, and patterns.  So don’t miss a day.  Santa’s filling your stocking early this year!
