We have a big field at the end of the neighborhood, the kids love to go there and run wild. The husband enjoys running around with the kids, so I sat on the hill and watched.

As some may remember, I have been working on this quilt for Eric for I don't know, like a million years. Ok, in truth I started this bad boy in September of '09. You can see the full thing without any quilting here and when I started hand quilting here. But recently I realized that I'd only finished 3 squares and I still have 22 to go, so I have to figure out how to get this thing on the machine. I did at the beginning of the month and I now have 9.5 square done. I have really sped through the thing now. The bad thing is that my basting method, while fine for hand stitching, is not holding up for machine quilting, the t-shirts have stretched some. This is not going to be the flattest quilt, but it won't take me 25 years to finish! I guess I should re-baste. But, here it is so far, well actually I have another shirt almost done, I am working on the diagonals now.

We were pretty excited to have visitors for New Year's Eve. Gwen was really excited, she wouldn't go to the grocery store with Daddy and she wanted to decorate the driveway.

Gwen and I were invited to a Mother-Daughter tea on New Year's Day. (this is why we had the big practice tea party with Grandma). Gwen was super excited and decided to wear her Christmas dress and I asked her if she wanted to do her hair in the hot rollers. She said yes! She wasn't pleased with the length of time the curlers were in her hair, but I tried to keep them in for as long as possible. One thing I know about my hair is it starts out big and then falls, was pretty sure Gwen's would do the same.
