I finally completed the jelly roll quilt, "Dreams and Wishes". The colors were not my favorite, but I won the jelly roll and 5" squares at my quilt guild. It took me a while to design something that I thought would show off the colors as well as making them more interesting.
We had our children and their families meet us at Seagrove Beach in Florida in June after everyone was out of school to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time just watching everyone enjoy the sun, beach and sand.
Remember the tiny little kitten we got last August 2010--well she got HUGE. Hanging over a bit on my window sill, She likes walking on my computer and opening new programs to surprise me when I come back to work. Georgia believes she owns the house.
We had a great trip to the Black Hills and Colorado in September.
THANKSGIVING--we had a houseful. Our oldest son and children and our daughter's family made the trip from Texas to celebrate Thanksgiving with us, our son and his family who live about 4 miles from our home and our daughter-in-law's mother. (yes, there is some Christmas showing.) I decorated before Thanksgiving because the Texas families never see Christmas at our house.
With 15 people, there was not enough room at the big table. The four youngest sat at a small table beside the rest of us. The two blonds belong to our youngest son and the dark haired to our oldest son.
|Our three children catch up with each other.|
|MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR|
