And let the holidays begin!

Well, FIL ended up showing up yesterday, he called and told us mid morning that he was going to be here earlier than he thought. Yikes! It sent us in a flurry to get groceries (After being gone for a week, the cupboards were bare!) and getting the house in some sort of order, laundry done up, the spare room somewhat tidied up, and the guest bath cleaned from ceiling to floor! Phew! It was crazy! and our room is still in piles of laundry (both dirty and clean) that either need to be washed or folded and put away!
But, he showed up and we went out for lunch, and had a great visit. He will be with us until probably Friday sometime. I didn't get any stitching in at all yesterday what with trying to get things ready for our visiter, but this morning I was able to sit down for a bit with "Love, Joy, Home" Which I need to post a photo of. I am really happy with the progress on this one, and I'm at the point now where I am towards the end of a project and that is all I want to work on in order to finish it, because I can see the end in the near future. Given I have time this week to devote to this piece, I will probably have it finished by the end of the weekend. Keep your fingers crossed for me! And here is my progress:

Ps: Bethann! Thank you so much for the beautiful scissors!!

Sounds like you were also bossing around the dust bunnies! Yikes ... and you accomplished that in ONE DAY? Good going. I spread it out over a week -- that way, I'm not exhausted when the big meal is served.

Happy belated birthday, too
