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.

There's still a week left . . . .

There is still a week left if you want to throw together your own Christmas in July party.  Just call a few friends, grab a Christmas project (either a decoration or a gift), add a few Christmas DVD's and you're all set!

I told some peeps that I would be back with another post last night.  Oops!  I finished what I had planned but not until midnight.  I finished all the embroidery around the "Let it Snow" quilt.  Now just the quilting, buttons, snaps and binding.

and I finished the tote bag I made for The Married One.  The handles are wide webbing attached with some older pink buttons.  She loved it!

The Married One packed up before I had a chance to take a picture of her pillow tops.  She still has to do the machine work.  She doesn't procrastinate as much as I do so maybe a finished picture soon.

The Wild One started on a Prairie Schooler Santa that she (meaning me) will make into an ornament.  I think she is going to make 4 of them.

No, she didn't get far but most of it was prep work ..... counting, fray check, finding the right colors.  Now that she has started, she should just whip right through these - I hope.

It's too hot out to do anything else, so why not stay inside and dream of a White Christmas or at least a cooler one!

Blessings, Cathi
