Blue Northern blew in!

Hi all,

It is down right cold here in Central Texas today!  It was... wait for it... 80 degrees yesterday until about 5:15 then the wind perked up and it got cold!!!! Was in lower 20's and felt like 3 this morning:( UGH!!!! High today is 43 and tonight down to 19:( Then a nice warm up again. We were lucky we had no moisture in the air or there would of been snow and ice. I tried to catch Baby but she was not cooperating so it was a cold night for her... she still wouldn't play nice this morning so she has been out the whole time. She is feral so I guess she has a place to go?

Since it is now my time to quilt for me I was busy this week! I got 5 done but they were all panto-graphs. I have one loaded for tomorrow that will start the custom quilting:) I am hoping to get 8 done so there will be 8 left in the closet... there is always next year:)

Here are the pics:

I fell in love with this fabric and waited till I found the perfect pattern:)
Love the way it turned out. The quilting…

Merry Christmas!!!!!

What a fun week!!! We had our Lunch bunch cookie exchange and my Bee sock exchange:) Always SO much fun and lots of food!!!! Then yesterday the grand daughter came over and helped decorate cookies:) There were sprinkles everywhere... lots actually made it on the cookies and into the gdaughter:) haha!!! I am SO in the Christmas Spirit!!!!

I am finished with customer quilts for this year and also all caught up on Project Linus... so now it is time to quilt some of mine:) YEA!!!!  will open back up for customer quilts after the first of the year:)

So this is what I got done this week:

Lots of dreary days......

Well the wintry like weather is here or at least the dreary part of it... feel so tired without my sunshine!!! We only got an inch but it drizzled/rained for 3 days so far:( UGH!!!

My daughter was not on campus Monday when the guy drove over and stabbed those students at The Ohio State. SO glad she wasn't there!!!

My BFF from TN has been getting smoke from the fires and rain from the storms but nothing serious! She lives in Knoxville. She say the ski ride we rode last year is gone in Gatlinburg:( We do have pictures to remind us of our great day!!! Poor TN!!

I did get some quilting done this week:) Only 2 more customer quilts and then a few Project Linus quilts. Then of course a few of mine and then I will shut down until next year... sounds SO far away doesn't it??

Here is what  got done this past week:

This is Brenda's Charm Square Christmas quilt for her Sister.
