Well, we made it happily through Christmas. No travel problems and the gifts arrived on time. We played some games and even fired up the Wii for a lesson in tennis and in bowling. John finished the wedding gift quilt. I tried and tried to embroider a label for the quilt and finally called the Bernina 200 a bad name. So that project is still to be done.
John barbecued outside even though it was 10 degrees; the barbecue wasn't heating up so he wrapped it in an old demo top quilt. That worked good and the roast was ready on time! I wouldn't let him bring the quilt back inside until we were sure it wasn't on fire.
Well, I'm off to debone a brace of ducks and make sauce out of a pound or so of butter; Not!
