More Christmas photos

We had planned to have left-overs in the way of French Dip sandwiches yesterday.  Pat was even here with his new doggie, Lucky.   (Beau was pretty well-mannered - I'd give him a "B".)  HOWEVER, like all good plans, we had our kitchen drain back up and so...Pat bought In & Out burgers and fries for everyone and they took the left-overs from Christmas  home to enjoy!

Here are some photos of the group.  Nan enjoyed her day with all the busy-ness and then we had a quiet evening. 

Today I finished up Part 4 and Part 5 of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, Grand Illusion.  It's in honor of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan.  There are NO motorized vehicles allowed on the island, so everything (including people) are delivered by horse-drawn carts.  I must add this to my bucket list.  I've been close.  Anyway, I'm looking forward to the reveal - when the top is finished I'll let you see it.  Colors are turquoise, yellow, pink and green with white and black accents.  I think I'm going to like it!  I decided NOT to make this one scrappy, instead using one fabric of each color.  I hope it's not tooooo boring!

Actually, I have about 5 or 6 quilt tops waiting to be quilted so after curtains are finished for Carin's living room and Mindy's restaurant, I plan to get started on nothing but finishing up quilts!  Wish me luck!!


  1. I look forward to seeing your quilt that you are making in honor of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. I grew up not far from there and have been to the island a few times.

  2. Thanks for the spelling correction Judy - I should have looked it up, knew it was different - but spellcheck let it be!!????? I'm happy for Mike and Peg leaving in the morning - they will definitely enjoy the visit in NJ - checking up on Nicole. AND I hope you'll enjoy visiting with them before they finally make the trek west to see us!!!
