Another Ornament Runner

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas this year and got lots and lots of goodies, especially quilting goodies. I did not get one quilty thing. I guess my family decided I had enough. LOL! Never!

Here is a picture of another Ornament Runner that I made........this one in Christmas fabrics. I really liked how it turned out.

I took this whole week off as vacation time and this morning, I am so glad that I did. I am tired after the last few days. I got up yesterday morning at 6:3o to get started on Christmas dinner.We had to eat right at 12 as youngest dear daughter and new hubby had to go to his family after lunch. I had gotten a good head start on Monday.......I made 2 pumpkin pies, one pecan pie, 5 pounds of fudge, pecan pralines and had a lasagna together waiting to be cooked. The lasagna was for oldest grandson, who loves lasagna! However, I needed to bake a ham yesterday morning. I got my coffee and got woke up and got started. I got my ham in the oven and got all the ingredients out for the cherry sauce. I then went and got my shower, dried my hair and about that time oldest dear daughter called me. She was nearly hysterical. I could hardly understand her. I finally got her calm enough to tell me what was going on. They had received a phone call from her mother-in-law that her father-in-law was unresponsive. Sandra could not wake him up. Anyway, they needed to postpone our Christmas as they needed to meet Sandra at the hospital. So, I called youngest dear daughter and told her to go ahead do her in-laws first and we would play it by ear for ours. So, my husband and I finished dressing and drove over to oldest daughter's (40 minutes away) to pick up her children. We brought them back to our house. But, everything turned out okay. Stefani's father-in-law was diagnosed with too much ammonia and was treated and sent home! That is a miracle in itself. So, everyone finally got to our house about 6:00 and we had a Christmas supper instead of lunch. Then we did presents and visited for awhile, watched RV again which oldest dear daughter and family just love and snacked on all those pies and candy I made. Thank God dear daughter's father-in-law is okay and having a delayed Christmas celebration turned out okay too. I bet all my grandchildren were asleep before they got off our road last night!

Everyone have a great day!

Glad everything turned out all right, Jan, but what a scare! Your ornament table runner is cute!

Thank you, Jan. Yes, it was a bit scary, but thank God the doctors found out quickly what was wrong. I think I am going to try to make a couple more runners for gifts for next year. They are so easy!
