It's Friday!!

I snapped this picture from our bedroom window last Monday. Since then, the ice has spread across the river. Makes you want to hunker down and work on quilting, knitting, and maybe some cooking.
I am in such a good mood today since it is Friday and pay day and we are going to the ocean tomorrow. AJ is attending the Waterman's convention and I am along for the ride to shop. I have the day mapped out. Can't wait.

Scrappy and Lily

I have to include a picture of our dogs. They are very "scraggly" - epecially Scrappy, well maybe Lily too.

They are sleeping on a huge dog bed that is covered with a quilt I made. Lily does not like it when I take the quilt off to wash it.

I made the quilt back in September, 2003 during Hurricane Isabelle. I think it is the ugliest thing - I blame it on the low pressure - but the dogs love it.

Thrift Store Finds

I love going to the thrift stores on Saturday mornings. This Saturday yeilded some great finds:
1 box of angora/wool yarn - 8 balls brown & 8 balls black. The balls were made in France for Lee Wards and are 1/4 oz each. All for $5.00.
I also found a FireWare bowl, 2 Creative Circle stretch & stitch bars, 4 novels, & a BH&G Crocheting and knitting book, table clamps to use for quilting, a package of rayon embroidery floss, a hand calligraphy picture mat, and a Williamsburg apple form. The total spent was less than $20.00.
Love it!
This afternoon is going to be spent taking down and putting away Christmas decorations, quilting, and some knitting later tonight.
Most important - RAVENS game at 4:30 - a must watch.

Had to Post

Ta Da!
I look stunning.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year
I have been in such a good mood this year. I hope it lasts a long time. I started a knitting class! I hope I can get through the project.
My quilting retreat is coming up. I am going with AJ to Ocean City to the Waterman's Convention. I love my new office. Life is good.
I am still working on my resolutions. I will post them the next time I can squeeze out a few minutes.
