Happy New Year!

Our holiday is officially over and it is time to get back to work. My three entries for the quilt show are registered, and now I need to finish the big two! The top to the spoonbill quilt is ready for quilting, as is the paper pieced one, so it's a mater of finding the time to do them, now. My daughter, Carolyn, left yesterday, so we are getting back to the regular pace of life here. I hope everyone had a swell time with family and friends and is now looking forward to a happy and healthy 2009. See you on the flipside! Susan

Tim's Christmas quilt

Hello again! I forgot to show you Tim's finished Tee Shirt quilt. He seems to think it's pretty special! Susan

Christmas is over...back to work!

Christmas is officially over and the New Year is almost here. I have been working feverishly on my show quilt so I can have a photo of it by the registration deadline of Dec. 31! All the branches and birds are appliqued down, and today I added the leaves to the mangroves. Now I need to do the thread work and then the trapunto before getting it ready to quilt. HA! I know I can do it if I really try!
Molly has been so pooped since Christmas that she is caught snoozing on the couch without even knowing it. Poor thing. Her new squeak toys are a hit and she runs herself ragged playing fetch with them. Skipper can't be bothered with such things and spends his time lounging or begging for food. Ah, the dog's life...
I hope everyone had a fun holiday and has a prosperous New Year. Susan
