Christmas was a quiet day around here but Ms. Pat informed me early that Santa had stopped. Terri, our daughter, surprised us with this beautiful glassware.
Ms. Megabyte2 didn’t want to get up, so she just stayed on her kitty quilt that Ms. Pat made for her.
Later she ventured out to Ms. Pat's chair with her lap quilt in it. She really loves all these quilts that Ms Pat is making. I was in the chair next to her with my computer on my lap and the TV blaring away. With all the bad weather they were showing, I was glad we were all at home with no plans to go anywhere.
Ms. Megabyte2 gets tired of watching TV but she loves to sit on my chair at the dining table and watch out the window.
Ms. Pat spent most of her day in her sewing room. She was looking for a table for her sewing machine and found this one in Wickenburg. Just what she wanted but it had this sewing machine with it. Well she talked me into going and hauling it home for her. WOW, was it ever heavy. I asked her why she needed another sewing machine, as she already had a really nice one. She answered “Why do you need more than one gun”?.................Hmmmm, the defense rests!
The new machine is a Pfaff and is all set up for “small jobs” on this little table. Ms Pat says she can take this machine to her sewing classes and not have to take the other machine out of the sewing table.
Here she has her favorite machine, a Bernina, set up in the new sewing table behind a “new” project she has been working on. I asked her what the project was and who it was for but I didn’t get much of an answer. Hmmmm, looks interesting.
Wow, all these parts and pieces, all sewn together one by one. Gee....this quilting is a LOT of work but Ms Pat loves it.
I don’t know what this is or who it is for, but it sure has lots of Cowboys, Horses, Spurs, Boots and Sheriff’s Badges on it! Very interesting.......
Now the big pieces and the little pieces start coming to together……
These corners are complicated. Good thing Ms. Pat has lots of patience!
It's still on the "drafting board" and Ms Pat says it will be a real challenge to get all those little squares to match up but she is getting there. It's shaping up and I think it's beautiful!! Boy, I sure hope I know who this is for!!
In between all this work on the quilt, Ms. Pat cooked a beautiful Christmas “HAM” dinner and all the trimmings. She knows I love Ham and Man-O-Man, she cooked a beautiful one!! Plus, we still have a bunch left over!! I don’t get much Ham, so it was a special treat from my “special” lady.
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!
We are so thankful for all the many blessings we have as we paid tribute to our Lord Jesus Christ on His Birthday.
Thank you for stopping by and we hope your Christmas was as “blessed” as ours.
