Janurary Progress and a Formal.

I have been quilting the Carolina Christmas Mystery. The quilting part is not my favorite but having a completed project hanging on my wall definitely is.
The sunlight in my Quilt Shack is perfect this morning to show the quilting progress.A good friend of mine gave me a box of goodies for my birthday. I am just thrilled. I will and have used every single thing in this collection. She included 3 packages of bent safety pins because I recently bought safety pins at the dollar store and they were so dull I couldn't get them through the fabric. She thought I should have the real thing. I was just about to buy a new pair of little snipers because mine were getting dull. Thank you so much Lynnann.

My DS#1 went to his first formal dance last night. I was almost as excited as he was. I never went to any high school dances when I was in high school. Being 6'2" in high school I was not the most popular girl. So now I am living vicariously through my children. Is that wrong?

I was not nearly as excited as she was. That smile was a permanent fixture on her face. Very sweet, they had a good time.
Kendra was so nervous she could not even pin on the boutonniere. He was afraid for his life. Just like his father when I am anywhere near him with sharp objects. I don't know why, I am usually pretty trustworthy.

What sweet photos. I remember those awkward high school days. Glad that I am waaay past that now.

Your quilting looks wonderful. It will be a spectacular finish.

The quilting on your Carolina Christmas is looking terrific. I just love the way that quilting adds to much texture to the finished quilt. It is always worth it when then end product emerges. The dance pictures are adorable, they look like they are having a great time.

That quilt is looking so pretty! It is my least favorite part, too which is why I have so many unfinished quilts. The picture of your son are great! I bet they had a good time.
