The girls and I hope you all had a great Holiday Season, no matter how you celebrated. We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Eve hubby and I ushered in the New Year with a delicious lobster dinner with baked potatoes, corn, and Italian bread. Yummy! Of course, the only time we have lobster is about every other year at New Year's--too expensive for our strict budget, lol. But once in a while we indulge ourselves. Of course hubby never stays up to watch the ball drop, so the girls and I saw the New Year in and then went to bed in anticipation of the next day.
New Year's Day was spent with 6 of my quilt club girls at Ann's house. We sewed along with the Planet Patchwork NYD Mystery . Ann served us breakfast and a great lunch of baked spaghetti, tossed salad, garlic bread, and a yummy vanilla wafer pudding. Between that and the snacks, lol, we all sort of got behind in the clues. Jill was the only one who even started sewing the rows together to see what the pattern might look like. I think she had one row left to go when I had to leave.
Most of us got our blocks sewn, but with other dinner commitments that day, we all had to pack up and leave at different times, so we'll probably end of finishing the top at Joan's house on our normal Wednesday sewing day.
But what a lot of fun and laughter we had. And we got another to chance to say goodbye to our BFF, Diane, who is deserting us for the warmth of a Florida winter. Traitor! Just think of us back up here in the frozen North, Diane, while you're down there lolling around in your bathing suit!
Here are the pictures I took yesterday.
The last picture is of my blocks as I was almost done with them. I had a jelly roll from Kansas Troubles called Kansas Winter, so that's what I used for my blocks. I love their fabric and colors. I have several more jelly rolls, layer cakes, charm packs, and turnovers in Lynne's other lines. You should stop over at her blog and say hello.
Until next time...
Happy Quilting and may your New Year be filled with peace and joy,
from Sharon and the girls, Katie and Patsy Cline
