Opera Company of Philadelphia "Hallelujah!" Random Act of Culture

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. I certainly did as I was able to share it with my family. I must say we experienced a very white Thanksgiving in Spokane. It was beautiful and gets one in the mood for Christmas which is now just around the corner.

I found this UTube video on the internet and was touched. I hope we all take time out as we prepare for the coming holiday to remember the real reason for the season, and I hope you all survived Black Friday , Small Business Saturday , and tomorrow ...Cyber Monday.

Busy weekend in the sewing room.....

 I was able to quilt two quilts this weekend, which feels like a big accomplishment.

   The first one was a quilt made by my sister Jill. It will be given as a christmas gift.
    I don't have a picture of the other one yet, but I'll post one when it is finished.

                   and then I am finishing the binding on this little table runner,
                             just in time for Thanksgiving.
                                        Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Quilt Retreat

This weekend I went to  a quilt retreat with my sister Janet. What a great time we had sewing, chatting, laughing, sharing, sewing, sewing and more sewing. I did manage to get quite a bit done. We went into town for a little shopping and I picked up the cutest pumpkin table runner. My sister got one too and we got our tops done. Mine even got quilted and bound! What a great time!

                                           This is Barb our fearless leader!

Sewing, sewing,sewing.......

                                                  Busy sewing and chatting.....

Barb had a project to share/teach...

and even a knitting lesson!

                              This is the cute table runner kit I put together.

                                                     My spiderweb quilt .

Several EYE SPY quilts were under construction...

                        This is Nikki's beautiful quilt top. Those are 1 1/2 inch strips!
