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.

I think I did pretty well today.  I stayed off the computer as much as possible, finished all 11 blocks and started putting rows together. 

I watched all of "White Christmas" and most of  "Christmas Vacation". I had to stop at the part where Uncle Lewis set the Christmas tree on fire with his "stogie".  Love that movie!  Anyway, I should be able to finish the movie up in a few minutes and maybe another row or two.  Had to take a dinner break!

Hope you all had a productive Rudy Day, too!

I changed my mind about what to do today.  I've decided I NEED to finish a project without starting another one.  I am determined to get this top finished today.

It's been hanging around much too long.  As of this morning, I had 11 blocks left to make.  I have finished 4 already.  I decided that I would set the timer in 45 minute/30 minute intervals.  45 minutes to sew and 30 minutes to do other chores including blogging.  So with 20 minutes left until I can go back in the sewing room, I better get the floor swept and some cleaning done.

I hope you will find something Christmasy to do today.  Will post more later!

Blessings, Cathi

Yes, It's been a month already.  I am enjoying an Easter weekend at the in-law's house but with an eye towards Monday.  The next Rudy Day. . . .

During the last month I put together the rows of my "Thoughts of Christmas" quilt.  I still have the border to go but I think I will save that for another Rudy Day.

This Rudy Day I will be making a snowman doll that I have had the pattern and fabric for more years than I want to mention.  The pattern is at home so I can't show a picture yet.  Join me on Monday to get another little piece of Christmas finished.  You thank me later!

Blessings, Cathi
