Finally did it!!!

The last few months I have had trouble with the truck I drive. Fuel pump, water pump, flat tires, etc. My DH and I have went back and forth on whether to buy a new vehicle. It has been 4 years since we have had to make a car payment and really don't want to do that again. But the time finally came last week when the starter began to have problems. So to finish off 2007 with a bang, this is what we purchased this past week.

This is our new 2008 Dodge Caliber. I think I am going to like it, all except that payment each month. lol

Some things that have been going on!

It has been a while since I posted but I have a good excuse. I have been working so much!!! Actually between 60 and 70 hours a week. This is the first weekend I have had off since October and I really needed it. I was suppose to go with my DH to his family Christmas dinner tonight, but decided I just wanted to stay at home. It has been so long since I was able to just sit and relax at home. He didn't mind.

I have some really neat things to share (I think, anyway!).

I have been working so much that I didn't even decorate for the holidays. My son kept telling me I needed to put up a tree but I just didn't find time. So Christmas morning, when I came home from work, I was so surprised to find a tree sitting on my dining room table. I had to take a photo of it. My son is always coming up with something like this. He keeps me laughing! Don't you just love it! lol

Charlie Brown would have been proud of him!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I also received a wonderful gift from my Secret Sister in our Quilting In Indiana group. I really love the apron. I have been looking at patterns for aprons but just haven't had the time to make one. She must have had an inside connection with Santa on this gift. I love it!!!!

The wonderful apron-------------

Sharon, thank you so much for a wonderful gift!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully tomorrow I can post more photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Santa Arrived!!

My Secret Santa anyway! lol
I got a wonderful gift from my Secret Santa in the Quilting in Indiana Yahoo group. Joni Tracey sent me such an awesome gift! The FQ's are just spectacular! Thought I would take a photo of her gift and let everyone see (rather be jealous)!

The picture doesn't do the FQ's justice! They are absolutely gorgeous! What a wonderful Secret Santa I have this year!!!!!
Happy Holidays!

Round Robin Blocks

These are blocks that I did this week to add to a Round Robin quilt. The quilt is now heading back to the owner in Wisconsin. I hope she likes them! I would show you the rest of the blocks for the quilt but I don't think that would be right since they are other quilters work.
The patterns for these blocks are done by the Quilt Mavens.
