It's time to start sewing!

I did it!  I finally finished prepping the last two squares for my Block of the Month from The Quilted Moose.  The BOM was titled, Le Jardin by Bunnie Hill.  Here's the last two...

Once again, it's upside down!  Don't know what I'm doing wrong, but you get the idea.  I'm off to do some hand sewing.  Happy Saturday!

Girls Night Out

On January 8, six of us went to see "Love, Lost, and What I Wore", it was a great dialogue.  The main character was Loretta Switt who played 'hot lips' in "Mash" years ago.  We all met at AZ88 for drinks and munchies before the play, we had a good time and saw a great play.  Just check out our smiling faces....
This is Rose, Janet, and Becky.

Jamie and her fun Mom, Toni. Toni enjoyed her Cosmo x2!

Rose and I.
Thanks girls for a fun day!

A quick sewing project with friends

Yesterday I was sewing with two of my quilting buddies, we made cute thread catchers.  I know, I'm supposed to be working on my applique project.  Anyway, here's what we did...

This one is mine and I'm using it for a gift, so shhhhh.

Then we had a yummy, healthy lunch.
Okay, back to the applique project.

I have been working on projects

About two years ago I was in the Quilted Moose quilt shop in Gretna, NE; if you're ever in that area you better stop!  Anyway, I saw this beautiful quilt, never mind that it had applique, and I decided I needed to make that quilt.  So... here it is about two years later, I must say I had worked on three of the nine blocks last year; it's time to get this project completed.  I worked all last week using the P3 method for applique and prepped four blocks.  Just look at what I did.... 
Can't figure out why it's upside down??

Here's another one, up side down!

Anyway, you get the idea.  I have two more blocks to prep and then I'll be ready to sew.  Guess this is going to be the year to get projects completed.
