Visit with Wendi and Matt's family


Rielly, Alexis, Amelia

Alexis and Amelia


Saturday Aaron and I drove to Las Vegas for a short visit with the Lougy's. It happened to be Amelia's 4th birthday as well. Nice visit. We played games, sewed with Alexis and Rielly. Alexis made an apron and Rielly a cool pillowcase. We had taco's and chocolate cake, sang and Amelia blew out all 4 candles.

Well okay, this blog is more than about my quilting

Christmas Quilt, from Bunny Hill Designs, I chose not to do hand applique, but to machine embroider the characters of christmas memories. I plan to enter it in the Green Valley Quilt Guild show next March.  The recipient of this quilt is yet to notified, and so after christmas it will have to come back to me so that I can use it in the show.

I don't have a picture to post as yet.... but Adam and Marisa's baby was born on Dec. 2, 2010 at 6:15 PST in Olympia, WA.  I got a photo on my cell phone from Adam, but don't know how to download to the computer. Guess that will be the next technological event to learn. She weighed in at 6# 5oz. 18" long. She is doing well at this time, according to the reports from Daddy Adam.  I haven't spoken to Marisa as yet, but am planning on going up to help in a week or so. More to come when I have the photo.
