New Year’s Eve Day


Yes, I’m still working on that cake pan full of triangle squares! I’m thinking I could add more fabric and use these blocks as a medallion center and keep sewing but nobody in my family likes these colors so why make a bed size quilt???
And isn’t this a bowlful of cat? Just a bit of “overhang” – ha!
Biscuit and Sassy are here until tomorrow afternoon and then I have a few days without boarders. The first week of January is full with 2 chows and one little house dog named Lizzie. It will probably be too cold to do anything except sew anyway – what fun!
Every day is a gift of time that I appreciate more than you know. Next week Connie and I are going to start working in the shop, sorting and pricing for the sale which we will announce tomorrow.
Sewing and college football – what a great afternoon!

    Instant kitty: just add water!
    You COULD make a bed quilt and sell it ??? Or sell it as a kit ???

    I’ve learn if you shash blocks with a color someone would like.. the colors in the blocks really don’t matter….but I like smaller quils rather than queen or even full…most tomes

    Happy New Years Eve Mary,

    Cozy contented cat! My black cat liked to sleep on the Bernina extension table when I was sewing.
    Fog rolled in sometime during the night so we didn’t hit 20 degrees for a low. 32 was it and there is sun shining now. Haven’t made my 1-12 UFO list yet; miss the shop’s monthly number drawing.

    Tomorrow’s my husband’s birthday. One year one of our Grands asked how many boxes of candles it took! Hope to watch the Rose Bowl Parade, game and sew tomorrow. Haven’t heard whether the grand-dogs may come stay during the girls’ snow day trip.

    Your pieced triangles look so good sewn together and would be good offered as is for possible borders, or the medallion center to some lucky shopper . Scrappy quilts are one of my favorites.
    Happy New Year tomorrow!

    Looks like you are having kitty cake. Chocolate !! Just kidding. Enjoy your leisure in your New year! I salute you and admire and understand how hard doing a farm is. Grew up on two of them in Utah during the 40s and 50s. Desert conditions and irrigation ditches . Lovely memories. Mormons are the best family people! Good quilters also. My Gramma made them by the dozens, and all hand work. Such an inspiration. I’m glad to hear from ayou, God Bless.

    Happy New Year to you and Connie and your families. I’m so glad that you’re enjoying your retirement. The shop is looking wonderful where you’ve ‘re-decorated’ and so lonely where you haven’t. It reminds me of when we moved…the house that I loved so much – and had put so much into – was just a shell of it’s former self. Can’t wait to see the shop when you’re done and it all looks like lovin’.

    HAppy 2015!
