I have been so busy!!

Well, this is one of my busiest months in a while.

I'm working extra shifts this month because I'm doing a lot of training.

To top that off, it's almost Christmas and you know that makes it busy on its own.

I went to my guild meeting last Wednesday.
We had our wonderful Christmas dinner.
Our guest speaker was Joan Reives of Belleville, Ontario.
She makes art quilts.
Her show was just beautiful.
One of her quilts won an honorable mention at Quilt Canada's National Juried Show of 2010.
It's called Peggy's Cove.
The link to see it is here.
If you want to see more of her quilts here is her website.

I also managed to get my Christmas tree up on Friday night.
It was fun to put up with the kids and my husband.
We decorated it together and I was even able to celebrate with a glass of wine.
I don't do that too often.

Today, I was up at 5:00 am. My son was in a wrestling tournament.
We had to be up early and at the school first thing this morning.
The whole family went to cheer him on.
It was the first time I was able to attend one of his tournaments.
He won all his matches and got the gold medal in his weight division.
I was one proud Mom today.
It's so hard to get this one to smile in a picture.
 I had to trick him to get him to smile.

Well, hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get some sewing done.
I'm too tired tonight.
I hope you all have a great weekend.

Hugs

Ariane

I love your tree with all the homemade ornaments. Miss those times with the kids. I sent your blog to my daughter - a teddy lover. I know she will love this tree - we had lots of teddies when she was little (and older), some are now with her family. Glad you got family time.

Delighted for your son...I absolutely hated watching my boys wrestle...as a mom I found it difficult and was so amazed at moms that watched that sport and rooted their boys on! Good job for that one!!!
Merry Christmas to you and yours
