Nothing says Christmas like a purple hippo

I finally received my replacement charger cable for my fitbit yesterday.

I have become very dependent on my fitbit and was suffering withdraw symptoms without it. I got my tracker charged up yesterday afternoon and went for my walk last evening. Since it get dark so early, many of the houses had their holiday lights on and this house has a purple hippo. Too funny!

Here are a few more homes lite up

After my walk I had a bite to eat then got to work on the pouches. I got two more made. The one pouch has a different fabric on each side.

We are having our company Christmas lunch today. This year's charity is the Salvation Army and they were asking for donations like gently used clothing, blankets, non-perishable food, and toiletries. I gathered up some items - toothbrushes, soap, etc. and I am donating these two quilts

The black, white, and red quilt has some bad memories for me. I have debated on what to do with it for years - destroy it was what I was thinking, but I never got around to it. It is hand quilted, 61" x 73", and I made it around 1996. It is time for it to go out of my life. I hope someone will get some use out of it.

I received a fabulous postcard from Vicki of Field Trips in Fiber. I am not sure I deserved getting one this year, but I love it!. I will hang it on my design wall with the others she has sent me. I didn't think about it until I hung it up with the others that Vicki sends me a postcard with an evergreen tree on it every year. Talk about keeping meticulous records to know this detail - Vicki you are amazing! I now have a forest! Look at them - aren't they wonderful together?
