Christmas STUFF -

Yesterday BOB did a post -

All about abbreviations -

And for those who were wondering -

EIEIO is a reference to the children’s song -

“Old MacDonald Had A Farm - E - I - E - I - O”

Dang it - a joke’s not funny if you have to explain it - ;))


Anyway -

On to today’s post -

As you all know -

Because it’s mostly all I have been talking about -

This past week -

Linda - of Linda quilts and I pulled out our Christmas STUFF -

And are going to have a little “Race” -

And - boy - do we have STUFF!! -

We have STUFF we forgot we had -

We have yardage STUFF -


Panel STUFF -

Lots of STUFF - ;))

We posted photos of our STUFF -

And then the emails started flying back and forth -


Linda -
OMGosh!! If this was a race to see who has the most panels.... girl you WIN!! HAHAHA
I love the red cardinal fabric. Even if it is OLD!!

ME -
Hahaha - yeah - I may have more panels - but you will probably get more stuff done - so girl, you WIN!! - ;))

Linda -
yeah well we'll see. I'm going to have to speed up a little or I'm not going to get anything done.

ME -
NO speeding allowed - I don't DO speed - I'm a Slow Poke Quilter. For me this is going to be a leisurely turtle race. NO stress - NO hurry - ;)) My life tends to get in the way - so what gets done gets done - I'm not going to stress myself out - and I sure hope you don't either!! This should be a fun - friendly - leisurely - let's just work on Christmas stuff "race". I still want to work up some more LHQSQ blocks - do something Halloweeney - and maybe Autumny - don't know yet. I want to leave some room for "squirrels" - haha. Maybe we should rename our race to something like "Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas With Squirrels Allowed" - something catchy - what do you think? - ;))

Linda -
Ooh I love that title!! I'll never remember it all... But I love it. Yes, you rename this on your blog and I'll pick it up from you. Thanks! Now I can go back to taking a nap in the afternoon.

ME -
I'm glad you like my title!! But - oh, crap - my timing sucks - BIG time!! BOB has a post scheduled for tomorrow all about abbreviations - and here I go wanting to rename our race - come up with something catchy - that will probably be long - probably need an abbreviation so that we can both remember it. I repeat - Oh, crap! - haha - And on top of all of that - in about 10 minutes it will be time for MY nap - BOB and I gotta have our naps - ;))

Linda -
Hey no stress remember! We have all the time we need. No hurry.

ME -
I'm not stressing - not really - just admiring the timing is all - haha.

I LOVE your line - "We have all the time we need." Maybe we should just call it our "Christmas Wish List" - not the stuff we WANT for Christmas - the stuff we WISH we could get DONE for Christmas - I have too much "stuff" already - ;))

Linda -
I so agree. That's why I called my list my "Hope" list since I hope I get some of it done.
I still like your "Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas With Squirrels Allowed" That's so cute and so catchy. I think it fits us don't you. After all we're cute and catchy!! Hahaha

ME -
And we like squirrels - ;)) So if you like LTRTCWSA - is that right? - we can call it that - ;)) I'll try to work something up for Saturday - BOB is the guest blogger tomorrow on LHQ - hehe - ;))

Linda -
sounds great to me.


So there you have it -

She has a “Christmas Hope List” -

I have a “Christmas Wish List” -

And we are both entered in the -

Leisurely Turtle Race to Christmas with Squirrels Allowed - ;))
