Quilt Therapy Thursday

When my oldest grandson was visiting us years ago I was in the middle of doing some physiotherapy sessions and didn't want to stop so I went to my sessions twice a week for the 3 weeks that he was with us.  He was probably 6 or 7 at the time.  YKW told him that I was in therapy and he asked "Is grandma going crazy?"  We explained that therapy was a short form for Physiotherapy and to this day still get a chuckle when we think of that.

I have decided that our Thursday Group is now "Quilt Therapy".  The 4 of us quilt on our own but get together once a week for "therapy". 

Yesterday was a fun day catching up since we hadn't been together as a group for about a month and we did manage to accomplish a few things.

Pierina is still working on her trees, and was excited at the end of the day to say that she had only 5 to go.  She has about 24-30 trees to do for this quilt.  All the red are finished, and now she is working on the green ones.

This is how she keeps it organized.

Two of her trees with green background.
Next week she will be trimming them to size.

Joyce was quilting the cushions
to match her bed scarf.

Maria is ready to quilt her paper-pieced
star burst.

I am working on a BOM from
I am going to make mine scrappy and give it as a
donation quilt when it is finished.

Another Ipad cover

New Years dinner was at my house this year.  My daughter and her family enjoyed fresh ham, scalloped potatoes, cream corn and green peas.  My son had to work as he had Christmas off.  I had my whole family here for brunch on Christmas minus two of my grand-children.  Maybe one year it will be a complete whole family.

My oldest grand-daughter got an Ipad for Christmas and when she saw the cover I had made for mine she decided that it would be a good idea for me to make her one also.  She picked the fabric from my stash.  She chose green fairy frost.  I guess that is typical for a young teenager.

Happy New Year

Well, it is that time of year again when we wish
health and happiness to our friends,
 neighbours and others.
I'd also like to say Happy New Year
 to all my blogging friends and wish you all a great 2012.
I had to post a picture with fireworks,
since I was able to stand in my home
and view some beautiful ones
last night.
There is a school yard behind my home
and a neighbour was there
lighting off a few for all to see.
I am not going to make any resolutions
for the new year but I will continue
to quilt and maybe this
year I will make a few donation quilts
for our guild.
I always have lots of leftover scraps that I am
sure I could put together and
come up with something.
