Happy New Year!!!!

It's a New Year and it's time to start my year out doing some of my UFO's.
Jennie has sent me some of mine so I have no excuse for not working on them. I meant a lady here in the park that is a quilter and she belongs to the quilt gild here so we are making plans to go. At last I have found a quilter!!!!
I will post a photo of the one I will start in a few days.
It was a very quiet New year's eve here. DA and Al gave up around 11:40 and went to bed so I saw the New year in by my self.
Everyone here in Florida sets off fireworks for the New Year. It sounded like a war zone for a while then by 12:05 it was silent.
Happy New Year to every one!! Flicsha

Yes I am feeling very happy . My Dear Sister Donna sent me a gift of 2 doz. mixed roses and the small box of chocolates that I consumed immediately. The photo isn't very good but they are beautiful. The chocolates weren't bad ether!! My Dear friend Debby sent this book of where we lived and grow up. It's just full of photos from the past and present.
Everyone in my life has been so thoughtful this year. I am just overwhelmed with it all.

Gift for Aunt

I was making book covers for Jennie to give for gift's to her co-workers and my DA loved them so much. I made her one. She loves pink and yellow.


What would I do with out my family that sent me wonderful things to brighten up my Christmas away from them? They are all so thoughtful and good to me. Some of the nice and perfect gifts from my sister Sue. It was so much fun to open the box.
Yes my slippers fit! thank you Sue! Jennie sent me this stack fabric. What more could a quilter ask for?

A bag to put them in! I just love the fabrics she used to make this bag just for me.
They have made me fell very special and blessed this Christmas. Their thoughtfulness and good wishes were just the thing for me here in not so sunny Florida!

Playing with my machine

I got this pattern from Embroidery Library for $1.00. I love this sight on the Internet. They have 1/2 price and $1.00 sales all the time. it makes it very affordable to but designs. I like one color embroidery.
I found this frame at the $ General Store near me for $2.00. I think it is just perfect for this embroidery.
I got all 3 frames and will do 2 more for gifts.

It makes gift giving a fun thing when it doesn't cost you a arm and a leg.
