Reason to Wake Up in the Morning

I'm an early riser and so many mornings I am puttering about and glance out the window to see something like the above.   It always takes my breath away.

I finished up another project for my art quilt group.  The theme was Hardware Store and the quilt was supposed to be 12 x 12 inches.  I outlined how I did it on the Baker's Dozen website and you can take a look at that if you want to see a bunch of photos of the quilt, in progress.  If not, here is the final deal:
I've been putting up Christmas decorations for the past couple of days.  I decorated wreaths for the front walk and put them up, yesterday:

I also put a bow on our Christmas Coyote that sits on the mantel, year round:

Been enjoying some nice Baileys in the evening:
And taking it easy in front of the fire:
While at the grocery store, today, I bought some whipped creme for the Baileys.  So now, I think I will go fix me a drink and pack on some calories. 

Happy Quilting, Penny, Evelyn and Pearl

Sounds lovely!! Have you tried the ChocoVine which is made in Holland from red wine and chocolate? Very similar to Bailey's in taste. Haven't tried it in coffee because I'm not sure how the wine part will react, but it sure is tasty all by itself!!
