Happy December

Just noticed the time and yup, it is December, the first to be exact.

So, where have I been for two months, eh!?  
Well, around.  Went on my first cruise!  And no, I was not on the cruise ship stranded at sea.  We were on the same cruise line and the same route, just a couple of days ahead of the sister ship. 
Our experience was just the best!
And yes, I did take my embroidery with me.  
My tan is fading, 
and I am having a hard time not reading all the ads for cruises now ...
December is looking like a fun filled month.  We are home for the holidays and gatherings.  This Friday evening is  the Quilting Books Club December Pot Luck and gift exchange.  It will be extra fun this year because three of our ladies are bringing their award winning quilts from the River City Quilt Guild Show a couple of weeks ago.  Saturday is our "Circle of Friends" and we are meeting at Kim's home - and she is teaching us how to make tamales.  
I want to be the first to wish you a peaceful holiday season.  
It is my hope that it is a time filled with the joy of being with family and friends and reflecting on the Light of the World.

I was wondering where you took off too...was hoping that Kim hadn't gotten you in trouble and left you in a jail someplace...
