Finishing up last minute orders, shopping and Free pattern

Well, I have finished up the last 2 Raggedy Anne's of the year. Got them on the way to their new home. I was so happy to get them done. I don't want to sew for a week or so. Even though, I did get an order for a Santa and Gingerbread Annie. But I said, not till after Christmas. No close to Christmas to try to rush and get them done and not enjoy my holidays. Don't have to do chemo until next Wednesday, got it put off from this week.

I had one order for my Winter Magic snowman, got him also finished. He has already made it to his new home. She loved him. I am planning on do more snowmen next year, as this pattern has been really popular

I am putting another free pattern in the pattern share box. This is an oldie , but has always sold really well. Check it out and download. I hope to put a new free pattern everyday for the rest of the week, so please check by.

Well, my daughter Samantha, and future hubby came over and had dinner with us. Then Samantha and I made up our annual batch of rumballs. Turned out great. She took some to work. She was working on dipping pretzels in the white chocolate and sprinkling with candy sprinkles. Quick and easy. We worked unto after 9:00 on these. Still have some serious baking to do. I got a banana bread made today.

Carmen is on her Thursday to our house for Christmas. She is bringing her little doggie Bristol, some the dogs (Harley and Hurley) will have a playmate for Christmas. Buddy (daddy's little poodle) still won't get friendly and play with the other dogs. He just sits on back of the couch and growls. Got all their little toys bought for Christmas.

Can't wait for Carmen to get, I am planning on a big pork roast the day she arrives. "We are having turkey breast for Christmas, not sure what else yet. My hubby works Christmas day, so we are going to cook a "feast" then Samantha and Chris will be there will hubby gets home for work, then we eat and do presents.

I will post another freebie tomorrow and post what Carmen and I get up to.
