Okay Winter arrived last week and fall/spring is back this week:)

By my title you can tell it has warmed up and we got rain:) We did have a lovely very quiet Thanksgiving with pizza:)

We decorated for Christmas today:) Of course we were hot and melting but got it all done:) Used almost everything I have kept over the years:) I did a big purge a few years back. No real tree or even a big tree anymore. The babies... Jax and Gemma and even KoKo have never seen a Christmas tree. So we will keep up the tradition of a small tree with indestructible ornaments:)

We also started no grownup gifts last year... sure makes the season SO much easier and happier!!! No stress!!! Of course I have a few items for good friends and the granddaughters:)

In our Bee we do a sock exchange. You buy a pair of really fun socks and stuff one with goodies:) We had SO much fun with that last year!!!!

In our lunch bunch group we do a cookie exchange so I have to bake 6 1/2 dozen cookies next Sunday for that:)

Did you buy a lot of stuff on Black Friday? I found the Insta Pot for a…

Winter arrived!!!!

Wow we had 69 in the morning on Friday and by afternoon the North wind blew in! COLD!!!!! We made it Friday night without the heater but it was on Saturday as we had a light freeze last night. Kitties were warm all over our beds! Poor Baby still won't come in but I guess she's used to the weather:(

Well it was a week of lots of downs:( First I got the stomach thing back that I had in Houston... went on a very bland diet and it took almost all week to get back to normal... good news... lost 8 lbs:) Of course I know they will find me fast enough!  So that meant no Guild mtg and no Thanksgiving meal with MIL:(

Then to add insult to injury ..so they say..  Dazi broke:( I was changing the thread and the tension spring broke:( Of course ordered one right away but don't expect it until Tuesday or later:( So that has halted all quilting:( But the good thing is I got a lot of of my projects finished and my cutting table is free of piles:) It also means if the spring arrives before …

Almost Thanksgiving!

Hard to believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner! We will go to MIL assisted living and eat on Wednesday of this week and then just have pizza and watch football all day on Thanksgiving:) Simple!

Have been quilting  a lot!!!! As you will see... I even worked on Sat and Sun of this week.... need to finish.....
Dot made this cute baby quilt for her first great grand daughter:)
Just loops and hearts all over:)

Marylyn made a scrappy Pinwheel quilt.
Just stipple all over.
Leftovers for backing:)
She also made this adorable snowman quilt.
They are all SO cute!!!
I did feathers in the border and different ones in every block of log cabin:)
This is her BOM.
All houses or buildings and snowmen. She needs to add buttons still.
Lots of swirls and feathers:)
Can you see the feathers in the border?
I stitched each building different.
And swirls in the snowmen.
You can see the swirls in the background.
More buildings to see:)
And the backing:)
