I have four items completed for January's OPAM Challange. I made a tea cozy for my sister, a wall hanging that I wanted for Xmas but never got to. The doll quilt is for a friend of my daughters little girl and the journal is for me. Found a nice little book at ACMoore(craft store) for 1.00 and could not resist it . I will have photos Friday as I did not bring the right cord to work today. I think I am going to try and compelte one small project every week from now on. Finally got the sewing room in order, over the holidays it was the dumping ground for things no one was sure where to put.

There are a lot of things planned for this year, work around the house to be completed, trips to the seashore with the family,trip to Seattle to visit my Aunt and loads of sewing projects.

I have dug out some old patterns from when my children were small to make Elias(grandson) some summer clothing, forgot how much fun that was.

Also trying to think of something to make for the Spring Swap.

Well talk to you soon, with photos.
Well I had to put something here for you to look at.

AQD Quilt Show/Lancaster

This is a repost of something I thought about attending, if anyone on the East Coast is interested please let me know. I would love to go but the rooms are a bit high and thought maybe a few of us could bunk together. I can only go from Friday to Sunday arriving Thursday night. There are special rates for the show.

AQD Quillt Show in Lancaster, PA
Just saw this and was thinking of going, also wondering if anyone else on the East Coast near Pa would be going. It might be fun to get together, check out all of the beautiful work, lunch and of course shop. I know it is a little ways off, but something to think about.General InformationAQS Quilt Show & Contest - Lancaster, PennsylvaniaLancaster County Convention CenterMarch 24 - 27, 2010Welcome to the 1st Annual Quilt Show & Contest - Lancaster, PAFor more information about Lancaster County and things to see and do, please visit The Pennsylvania Dutch Convention & Visitors Bureau.General Info Pages

2010 OPAM Challange

I know I haven't been around much , still no computer at home but soon. The holidays went well, first Chirstmas for Elias and it was fun. My daughter came up from Alabama with her boyfriend for a week and it was great to see both of them. Had the Clarks over for the pollyanna(secret santa), and my son cooked another fantastic Christmas dinner. I will have photos soon of all the wonderful gifts from my Advent Swap partner in Italy. Also some very nice ornaments received in swaps.

I have joined up for the 2010 OPAM Challange the Kris and Peg are running, hoping to keep me on track for 2010.

Talk to you soon
