Christmas was quiet, filled with excellent food, not too much in the way of gifts. I made my husband a reservation at Alinea in Chicago, and that's his gift. I guess it's mine too, although it's honestly not my thing. Still, a world class restaurant is not to be sneezed at, so I'm grateful for the chance to go.
This is more my thing:
Our new kitten, Larry. Larry was rescued as a newborn from a cat hoarding situation: sick, starving, covered with fleas. He was bottle-fed, given antibiotics, de-fleaed (twice), and is now healthy, happy, and very people loving. He thinks he is a person, I'm sure. Our other cat hid for two days, stalked around in fury for several more, and now just stares at him. He is completely undisturbed by anything she does; he's seen it all. We're hoping they will eventually be friends, but peaceful coexistence may be as far as it goes.
On the quilt front, I've finished Interpret This! (reveals January 13), pieced one more quick charity top, and quilted and bound this one:
the last finish of the year.
We're going to Chicago for New Year's with my son, daughter-in-law and the twins since we couldn't see them Christmas. I can't wait!
Everyone: have a safe New Year's Eve, full of whatever sort of celebration you most enjoy, and a good 2011.
