Can you believe that it is almost 2009 already? Seems we just had this discussion not long ago for 2008. My how time flies when you're having fun! And that's just what has happened since the last post.
We've had Christmas here at the new house with the grand kids, met new friends and neighbors, and now tonight, we are having a little game party until midnight with a couple of dear friends - Byron and Darlene. I have planned dominoes, scrabble, and we'll all try out the new Wii! Chili is on, fresh bread is already out of the oven, and the dips are sitting in the fridge. What a way to bring in the new year, eh?
For the first time ever, we live in an area that doesn't forbid fireworks. So, both Hubby and I stopped at different times (unknown to each other)when the fireworks tents were being taken down last July. Let's say that if you look to the center of the US around midnight tonight, you might see our display. We certainly have enough to last a little while, I think. We've already warned the two neighbors we have that have horses, so their horses won't be upset with the noise and/or the lights.
I've got a few projects on the wall to get going on. The Bonsai tree is next, and I've got all the fabrics pulled and auditioning on the wall, as well as some bindings on a couple of quilts from last year to finish. I've been contacted by someone about making another commission quilt. We need to finish up the details on that before I commit, but it might be a nice bit of unexpected pocket change in 2009.
No quilt pictures today; the round robin quilts are slowly making their way home, so you should click through the RR bloggers web links on the right side (click next). In the meantime, but I will leave you with a celebratory picture of hubby and me. Have a happy and safe New Year!
