Sew Connected 2

I am part of a virtual quilting group. Their are 16 of up and we each get a month over the next 16 months to send everybody a bit of fabric for them to make into a quilt square. Then all the squares are sent back to that months person and they get to assemble all the blocks into a wonderful quilt for them self. January is quiltinkimmie's month.

This is what I came up with.

I hope she likes it.

Next month is my wonderful friend Katy's month.

Sunday Stash a day late.

I am a day behind. We were at Hubby's Christmas party for his work Saturday night. He was awarded a nights stay in the hotel the party was held at. Not having family around our munchkins got to join us. We had some friends girls come watch the kids in the room. I think they terrorized the hotel. Oh well, we were down stares pretending to be grown ups. But anyway we were out part of yesterday, then when we got home I spent my time cleaning. Fun Fun. With the house almost picked up and most of the laundry finished and put away here is my Sunday/Monday stash...

Birthday fabric bought with a gift certificate to one of my favorite online shops. It was from my Mommy, Daddy and Grandma. It is always good to feed the fabric addiction.

I love cold weather. Winter is my favorite time of year. But I am a California coast girl. Winter is cold, but there is no snow. Well maybe every few years it sprinkles down a bit but nothing sticks. So I have lived California winters for 27 years, they are mostly the same. I have now entered my 3rd Texas winter. Holy crap, they are all so different. You have no idea what the next day will hold. Our first winder there was a freeze. The entire city shut down. The next winter you hardly needed a sweatshirt. Now this year it is just plane nuts. One day we are in the low 80*s then the next it is 31*. I don't know if I am hot or cold most of the time. Today is cold. I guess tomorrow is going to be spring time weather. Ack.

Ok, that is enough weather ranting.

My 30th birthday was last Friday. Hubby took the day off work. We went to lunch, got my slice of Chocolate Cheesecake, picked Maddie up from school and then did a bit of Christmas shopping. We got the kids an air hockey table. What a hit that has been. There was no way to hide the giant box so it is all set up and the puck is flying.

My mom, dad and grandma got me a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. So I did a little shopping. And the wonderful Katy sent me an amazing sewing box full of goodies.

Back to sewing. I have a few things to finish up before Christmas.
