It Has Been Awhile!

With the month (and the year) about to end, I thought I would do a little catching up on my blog.
This picture was taken 46 years ago!!  Today is our anniversary...we are going to spend a very quiet day at home..the weather outside is awful...we are in the midst of our third snow storm this year...and although it is beautiful, we think we can enjoy the day staying home just fine, thank you very much!!

Christmas activities galore...first, a Christmas party with my Guild.  Each year the board decorates tables for everyone at our meeting place; everyone brings goodies...a real feast!  And we don't have a guest speaker; we just have a massive show of all the quilts, etc that everyone has been working on all year!

This is my table...we also have "favors" for the ones who sit at our table...usually a fat quarter and whatever else.  I found these cute Christmas mugs and added a hot chocolate packet and candy with my fat quarter.

This is the quilt I had ready for show and tell.  I made it for a friend of mine who is Hispnanic so I named it "Salsa Snail".  She had admired another quilt of mine which I didn't want to make again so this is a somewhat lookalike to that one.  I gave it to her yesterday and she seemed really pleased.
And we had EIGHT deer on our side lawn this morning...to help us celebrate our anniversary...I think they are from Santa, on vacation...resting up from their journey last week!
