Procrastination Fever and Happy (Harley) Holidays!

The quilt is done. Why do I chose the last few days before Christmas to complete all the projects I've been working on all fall? I guess I have a serious case of procrastination fever. At least Beamer enjoyed sleeping on my lap as I finished putting on the binding. I've got a few other things in the works too, but can't write more about them right now:) Maybe a post next week will show the details! I think my Christmas shopping is all but done. Just a few more packages to wrap and some baking to do. Procrastination strikes again. I think I work better under pressure anyway. If I did finish up early, I'd just find more to buy ( or bake, or make!) . We lucked out again with the weather. After a few flurries yesterday, the rain came and washed the little snow we had away. But it is pretty chilly today. (No, I'm not complaining here as I know some of you in Kansas are now digging out of the snow in addition to the ice!)
The Louisville Harley-Davidson store was having a grand opening of their newly remodeled store so we made a quick trip down to check it out. Their Christmas tree was really pretty. The bronze, orange and brown decorations on the tree were very tasteful and not overly "Harley". I wish my photo had turned out a little better. We drew coupons for 25% off all clothing purchases so we bought ourselves a couple of early presents. Guess I should wrap them up and put them under our tree. Afterall, the bike won't fit and that's Dennis' present for the next several years! The other 105th anniversary Ultra Classic Electra Glide that we were originally going to buy was on the showroom floor. The color of this one was Copper Canyon and Silver and we both agreed that we like the color of the bike we ended up with so much better. After a quick stop a Lowe's (stay tuned for future posts on our home makeover project!) and an early supper at Cheddar's, we came right home and got right back to work!
Countdown to the arrival of all the kids - 6 days! Happy Holidays!
