Coming down the other side of the mountain

Busy, busy!  Still working on the 2 quilts but making progress.  We expanded the train platform and added so many new things to it, a Ferris Wheel, ice skating pond, mountains...just too many things to tell you about. I should be able to get it together enough to enjoy this year but my son will have many things to add to in the future. Right now the sewing room and kitchen are a mess!!

Sewing room. Adding the lace to  quilt #2.
 New houses being assembled on foam board

 New expanded platform and flowers for the office and me
 Houses are the background to the German Christmas Market. I still need sidewalks, town tree and market stands. I'm hoping to get that much done today.

I'm trying not to be in a race for time but the truth is showing it's nasty head. I think I have made that trip to the top of the mountain, was given so many extra days to enjoy my family. But, I'm getting signs that the end is near, my ability to do things is coming to an end. I think the next 5 days will be putting this all together, having the trains running on the tracks and having one quilt under the needle getting quilted.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving so everyone is coming back for Christmas.  That too has changed. My son had an attack. Tomorrow he'll be having surgery for a stomach ulcer. That changes the menu! I haven't put that together entirely but I'm hoping for on line help from all the best cooks! For the past week he's only eaten cereal so he's looking forward to this dinner.

That's what's happening at the Gibson home this season....hope everyone is also getting their holiday together!
