If I start this now ….

Then it does not count as a new year’s resolution and should mean that I keep it updated. Well that’s the theory….
Last weekend before Christmas I had a mad spurt of energy and tried to finish some projects before the holidays, I made a nice cushion, Xmas table runner, 2 sandwich wrappers and a snowman soup sack. Have not completed my place mats and additional stockings though. Ah well there is always next year.

Sunday night we had friends to dinner and we had slow cooked tangy chicken with couscous, it was a great evening and we rounded off the meal with some very decadent cup cakes from culinary creations.

I have spent the past few evenings trying to complete the binding on my Hunter Star quilt, I seem to have more holes in my fingers than stitches in the quilt but I will persevere. I have yet to find a thimble that works for me. Went to Quilters Attic in Pine Bush and they had oval sticky pads for your fingers, They worked very well and I was at last able to finish the Hunter Star. I could enjoy the holidays knowing I achieved most of my goals
