Christmas has quickly come and gone after so many weeks of planning and preparing for its arrival. As always, I like to ask the kids what their favorite gift was. Each one gave me their answer and then I thought what was mine?? I would have to say with no hesitation that it has to be the "Cassidy Calendar 2009 Edition" made by Neil's niece and nephews, Jack (14), Simon (12), Iain (11) and Robinson (9) that we received all the way from Nova Scotia, Canada. The drawings are computer composed with lots of color and creativity. I am so thrilled with my calendar (because the kids took the time to do 12 drawings, printed them, made into a calendar and sent in the mail in time for Christmas. As well, apparently there were also some goodies that Rachel sent along but some how was consumed very quickly by Neil but that's another story) that I would like to share with you each month from now until the end December 2009. The first one, for January of course, is "Snowfort" by Jack. I hope that you will enjoy along with me the upcoming year of monthly drawings!

If you will recall from an earlier posting, I had been working on a center block for a Round Robin that I was participating in. Here is the end result!! I can't take all the credit. Margaret from the USA added the 1st border, Alicia from the USA attached the 2nd border and Wendy also from the USA did the quilting and binding. The proud owner is Laila from Norway. I am very pleased and honored to have been part of this exchange. Thank you goes out to Margaret who is the hostess of the Round Robin. A job well done for organizing the exchange.

Here is yet, another sneak preview of something that I'm working on. It's Christmas time and you're not suppose to ask questions! I'm trying to get it pieced and then off to my friend Tammy Spencer for quilting. When it's completed, I'll post a pic.
