When all is done, or nearly done

Cookies either made or dough is chilling.
All gifts sent, delivered or wrapped.
 Cards long since mailed.
 Decorations done.

Son to arrive in hours.
What to do?
Make a little white house.
Lots and lots of itsy bitsy stitches.
Lots more to add but I'm 
happy with the direction it is taking.
Next come flowers.

Helps pass those long hours waiting for 
both children to be back under my roof.

Happy White Wednesday all!

How cute! I am so impressed that you are just waiting for your son and for Christmas. I'm still pondering my Christmas cards. Maybe New Year's cards...

Happy WW,

June said...

I love how you pass your time Z.
Your daughter is beautiful.
I remember sleeping with my hand in the bassinet for weeks with my first one. My husband thought I was nuts. It's weird, the difference between mamas and dads.
Merry Christmas to you and the loves of your life.

Faded Charm said...

I wish I could get as much done in a day that you can get done in a few hours. You must really enjoy busy work....and your very good at it. Cute little house.

Best wishes and enjoy your children this holiday season.

Suzan.....well I've been up for several hours this morning, but all I've managed to do is move from one sofa to another until my neck started hurting and ended up here on the computer.

Love your little house, very creative and original (and those tiny stitches....you can definitely see the quilter in you)!

Have a wonderful time with your children and Merry Christmas!

from me to thee......... said...

this is too darn cute, it is amazing what you get done when you just have a bit of free time....I would LOVE to see when your all done, but I LOVE it just the way it is....maybe you should sell some?

Claudia said...

Oh, what cuteness! By the way, I ended up making a coffee filter wreath because of your post! I really love it. I posted about it a few days ago.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

I thought I heard the news today about the rains near you but I was still in my morning fog. Hope everything is ok now. Good thing the plane didn't take off without the repairs.
