On our way to Chicago to see our daughter, Amanda graduate from Navy Bootcamp!
I don't do cold very well, so this will be quite the adventure.......
Christmas was fun, although I sorely missed my baby! Darkel was on leave, so I got to spend some time with him and Melyssa! We had some GREAT dinners together!
I know, terrible pictures, but the only ones I took!
Can't wait to get all pictures of my quilts that we're give away this year, everyone promised me pictures (hint, hint), so I can post the recipients with them!
Sherwood and I both worked Christmas, and it was a rough shift, but we made it through!
Looking so forward to our vacation!

Stockings for the new twins, a doctor's new son, my boss and my brother!
A pillowcase for my sister (since I convinced her to get a "My Pillow")
A reversible table runner for my niece (who loves cowboy stuff):
Went through all my Christmas fabric, hoping to use my stash for a quilt for our home, ridiculously, I don't think I have enough "matching-ish" fabric to make one, but I will try:
Starting a scrap Christmas quilt using present stash!

I enjoyed my 55th birthday so much! I was teased about now being old enough to get a "senior citizen's discount". Not funny (even if it's true!)
My birthday morning started when my husband presented me with an iWatch! It will probably take me until my next birthday until I learn all it's capabilities!
Shortly after that, my best quilting buddy, Theresa picked me up and took me to our favorite fabric store, M&L. On the way I got to unwrap several gifts from her, including a gift card for a massage, many, many buttons for my button collection (she has been collecting them from as far as Japan).
We did some major damage there!
Went to "TAPS" for late lunch with Melyssa and Sherwood!
Then, as I requested, home to relax for the rest if the night!

I'm finishing up the 4th and 5th quilt for Christmas!
Red and blue for Trenton:
Next up is the last quilt for my nephew in Vacaville! He rides a "Harley", hence the motorcycle themed quilt!
And then.....I can start MY Christmas list!!

Is still going! I've got 4 out of 5 quilt tops done and the fifth is halfway cut out! The fifth is a similar one to the 4th, except I exchanged the green strip for red! I will also embroider their names on their quilts. The binding will be the opposite color, so they are simian but able to tell which quilt is theirs from a distance!

Working on Christmas orders! Want to have them all delivered by December 10th at the latest! Hopefully then I can get some of my presents done!
Had a little break, made my 18th block for my "Anniversary Quilt". My goal is to have this quilt finished for our anniversary this year and also to enter it into the Orange County Fair.

Made two autumn cosmetic cases this evening! One for my bff (will give it to her tomorrow) and one for myself (need a JoAnns coupon holder for my purse.
I also made a Wonderwoman/Batgirl/Supergirl cosmetic bag for my daughter, Amanda!
