Sewing with my sister

Over the Chrsitmas Holidays my sister Greta came from Missouri and spent six days with me.  We had a "sewathon".  We spent one entire afternoon shopping for fabric for her quilt and then she spent most of the next day washing and ironing it.
For some reason I have the same look on my face as I do when I light birthday candles.  Every single picture in which I'm lighting birthday candles!  Weird!

I finished this top while she ironed.  It's for the daughter of my friend who passed away in November.
She was my first friend in Texas so all these fabrics represent something about Texas.  I'm working on a second one for the other daughter.

This is what Greta accomplished while she was here.

Happy New Year

Don't know if there is anyone out there who still reads my blog, especially when I'm so sporadic about posting.  

We had a great Christmas with lots of company afterwards.  I finally got all the decorations put away a few days ago.  

Here are two quilts I made for my daughters and their husbands that I couldn't post before Christmas. They were surprised and happy with them.  They're just utility quilts but they needed them.  It's been really cold here!

My friend Cindy was here from Reno.  She brought this quilt to bind.  Isn't it beautiful?  Remember she was working on it while we were with them on their sailboat in The Bahamas last January.

My sister was also here over the holidays.  We sewed.  And sewed.  More on that next time.
