Civil War block and a few more Morris Garden blocks.


I have been back to work this past weekend – two night shifts!!  So today I finally got to sew up the second Civil War Block – yay! 

I have also been working on the Morris Garden quilt and I made 15 more blocks last week.  I quite like the new ones!  That brings me to a total of 50!  So I am half way there.


A couple of Christmas pictures….. I didn’t take a lot of pictures and my sister’s son Carter got the camera and took a few – good thing for Carter or we might not have any Christmas pictures! 

This is the three sisters  -- together for Christmas dinner for the first time in 20 years or more – probably more.  It was certainly a fun time – we haven’t lost our ability to consume a few bottles of wine.  Pretty informal bunch aren’t we!!


Pam – Sandra – Sharon


Here is a picture of Jim and Jenny on the way back to Vancouver after Christmas – the roads were pretty bad on the way home – this spot is the highest highway in Canada.

Jim is busy right now – he has decided he needs to make Caesar Salad dressing from scratch so he is Googling and planning – so I have a bit of free time before dinner!  I am not working until next weekend – so more sewing …………………oh he’s calling……….

  5. That's such a nice quilt! I so into repros now, which is good since I don't have any and need a stash of that! lol You guys need to stop hogging all the snow. lol We have very little snow. All of the major storms have by-passed us. Sigh! I am so due for a good snowfall! Thanks for sharing! Cheers!
