The Mistle Toad

O.K. here I am better late than never. Last month I kept myself busy trying to catch up with my commissions and I managed to teach a quick dye transfer class in Columbus last month. Christmas came upon us so fast that I could barely get time to put up a tree for the holidays. The stockings didn't get hung.... come to think of it where were they this year? Probably in the dirty laundry! I seem to cut things down to the wire and even got my customer quilts done two days before Christmas. Whew!!! Now for a few days to relax and regroup again. My fiberart group in Columbus had a Christmas get together at an Italian Restaurant, Buca Di Beppo. My favorite of all was the Dolce with a sampling of a lot of desserts! We had Italian again the following week. My daughter and her husband took us to the ShadowBox in Columbus for a show and then we went to Easton to have a fabulous Italian dinner at Brios. Of the two, I can undoubtedly say that this one was my favorite! Afterwards, we did some last minute Christmas shopping, enjoyed the singing on the streets and the magic of Christmas with all of the lights. I only wished that I would have brought my camera with me to share some photos. Speaking of photos, I really didn't have much to share this time and it dawned on me that I haven't had one photo of me on the blogspot! So here I am decking the halls with the after effects of Christmas Cheer. With a few glasses of wine below my belt, I am able to sing any Christmas song I want and feel pretty good about it and of course kiss the Mistle Toad for good luck!
