What is Rudy Day ? .....

I've always enjoyed Christmas. The decorations, the flurry and, of course, the real meaning but always felt let down on December 26. It was all over in a flash. All the planning and doing was gone in a minute. Finally I found the OC ...not the tv show but the Organized Christmas website which led to the Magical Holiday Home Forum. I don't even know how I found it but I did. And they had this wonderful thing called Rudolph Day....Rudy Day to most of us.....that lets you think, plan, dream about Christmas at least once a month on the 25th. And the best thing was I found more people out there just like me ! Crazy about all things Christmas. Well, almost obsessive. But to my family and friends that think I'm nuts half the time, I just want you to know there is no cure for it so don't try to find one. I wouldn't want the cure if you could find one anyway.

So far, so good . . . . .

Jennie just left and we are taking another breakfast casserole break.  Thought I would post a few pictures.
The Wild One working on some new cross-stitched Christmas gifts.
Jennie is smocking the yokes for her granddaughters' Christmas dresses.
The Married One is outlining a snowflake pattern that she will be appliqueing onto cable knit wool pillows.
Me? I've been fussing over them mostly and making sure they have everything they need.  I have sewn the binding on the tote that I showed the other day.  I have a few more words stitched on my "Let it Snow" quilt.

We've watched 2 movies so far.

Picking movie number 3 next!

Blessings, Cathi
