Monday with sunshine

Well we survived without Caro to help us do the quiz in the morning newspaper.  That had become our habit while she was here and it was quite fun.  Of course, her knowledge of English and trivia was very impressive.  She sent the creator an email, so it will be fun to see if she gets a reply.  We were able to Skype with her (morning, our time, and supper time there) and do a quick catch up.  And, as predicted, her husband was mighty glad to have her back home.

Yesterday, as it was the first day of Advent, there was a church potluck breakfast.  (of course!)  So we made some mini-muffins as a contribution.  There was lots of fruit, multiple breakfast casseroles and an "over the top" apple-caramel bread pudding.  Now that was divine!

I was able to find a bit of time to add the borders to the 1600 quilt top that I finished recently.

(gold and dark blue).  Next to get it to Alayne for quilting - after I figure out a back.  Our house is so quiet these days, so last night during Sunday night TV time, I started a couple of little embroidery projects.  Not sure what will happen to them, but made some button covers and started a little strip piece to be added to something.  Hmmmmm.  More details as they develop. 

Weather man is predicting sunshine, but C O L D!  That is only a worry due to not having the RV winterized yet.  We do have an appointment (the first we could get) on Friday.  Finger crossed and I may need to go to the storage lot and run the generator and heaters for a bit.  Maybe fingers and toes crossed is what is required. 

Happy Monday, y'all.


  1. Hope you will get the RV storaged before winter really arrives. You are so quick making another cute quilt top.

  2. By the way, you can tell Elaine that the calender is much fun. I showed Dieuwke how to install it. Thanks. Caro

  3. I very much like your 1600 quilt with the little red squares! It is very dynamic with the lights and the darks and all the colors!
