A Quilt for a Friend

I am starting a new quilt that is a collaboration with another friend. The center of the quilt is from a pattern that she has wanted to make. Since it wouldn't be big enough for a lap quilt, we are adding borders like those found in M'liss Rae Hawley's Mariner's Medallion book.

A Glorious Victory Over The Hated G-Men

With the Cowboys losing to the Chargers Sunday afternoon, Sunday's game between the Eagles and Giants loomed large. First place of the division was at stake. It was an exciting game with lots of bigs plays. None bigger than the 2 TDs from my favorite player Desean Jackson. Only he can get away with with a body slam to the coach (Andy Reid).

It's Christmas Time At The Day's

Everyone loves Christmas here. The decorations are up and presents are being wrapped. The kitties enjoy all the new toys. Wrapping paper and new boxes (empty of decorations) are favorites.
