What I have accomplished today!

This morning we had a late Christmas get together. Just didn't seem to work out that we could get together before now. We had a great breakfast together then exchanged a few gifts. Jan, my SIL, gave me something I had been wanting for a while.

These are the paintsticks she gave me. I had been reading up on some of the things you can do with these and fabric. Here is some good reading if you are wondering.

I hope to be able to give them a try the first of the week.

I have also been wanting to put my quilting frame back up. I have spend quite a bit of time the last few days moving things around so I can accomplish that. Well, today was the day.

Jan arrived about 2 and after we got our necessary chatting done we started to work on it about 3. At 6 we had it this far and Jan took off for home. I got a few more things to do to get it ready.

It's ready now though! The machine is even threaded for some practice quilting. Tomorrow I plan to try and get some muslin loaded and do some refresher quilting. Hope it comes back quickly even though it has been a few years.

DD Jill heads back to college tomorrow. Might be kind of strange with Tater Tot gone off the couch!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
