Say, whatever happened to the idea of a New Year's Eve sewing party? Is it too late to get something going? Diana in East Tennessee, did Carolyn show up to sew with you?

Okay. I'm here, Nancy.
I'm not sewing as I have my 2 year old granddaughter on my lap.
She watched her first Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial tonight -- Jenny Doan doing a quilt as you go. I couldn't believe Isobel watched the whole thing right up to the last minute before she got antsy. We have a new quilter in the making.
The New Year's Party was a great success. Carolyn and I made it to Diana's and got lots done. We even managed to get Diana sewing and she completed a small top and is ready for borders. Carolyn did take some pics on her phone and I hope will post them once she gets home. Carolyn and her husband are headed back home tomorrow as well as I.
Well that's where you have been Nana. I tried calling you today
Nana, good to hear from you! The party is already over and done? Some of us are just getting wound up!
I didn't know that Diana needed encouragement to quilt. Has she not been feeling well? Tell her we're missing her!
For some reason....even at retreats...we have to convince Diana to actually set down and sew.....LOL
And she has all that gorgeous fabric!
About as close to sewing I'll get tonight is to open the door to my sewing room, see the tornado that came through when I was looking for fabric for my cat applique, sighing and closing that door.
I sewed today. But now I'm enjoying warming my feet before heading to bed. Happy new year everyone. May 2014 be filled with many wonderful projects.

Sorry so slow. I had a wonderful time sewing with Nana and Diana. Thanks very much, ladies for spending a relaxing, peaceful days with me. I am a terrible photographer but here are the few photos I got. Diana finished an entire quilt top despite barely touching her machine. I'm not sure how that works. Lol
love seeing the photos Carolyn.
Thanks Carolyn! Happy New Year!
