this moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. Soulemama

Babes Get Together

Finally we had a BABES get together at Jane's. We all gather at her house, walk to downtown and have brunch, get chatty catch up and by the time we are back at her house, it's usually time to sit and knit and catch up some more! But this time, it was craft time at Jane's. We talked about it long ago, getting together and doing a different craft at each other's house. It just never came to fruition for one reason or another! The BABES just haven't been meeting enough, for one reason or another. This must stop!

I invited the BABES to Christmas lunch one weekend before Christmas for the BABES CELEBRATION! I won't be able to post what I have been working on, but I will say, I have been in the sewing room a lot lately. Not only do I have the BABES coming, I am hosting a Cookie Exchange for friends up here and also having some other Charlotte friends up before that! They are other knitting friends. I have no clue why I am doing all this but this just seems like the year to do so. I have had some lifestyle changes, gone thru empty nest, established new friends, keeping old friends and had a few other issues which makes me want to celebrate with everyone in my life!

So here are pictures of what I did today! Thank you Jane, Susan and Suzanne for still being my BABES WITH BALLS.....

oops, forgot a pic!

Susan's work / Shalom Sweater

Susan sends me pictures of her work and I post them. I love this sweater! I know she knows how to use the blog and post to it but yet she still sends it to me. There would be a better description for all her beautiful work is she was to post. Come on, Susan!

A Little Late / Remember this / Blue Monochromatic

Finally!!! Over three months late but I have (almost have) the blue monochromatic quilt top done. I looked back and it was July's quilt. That must have been where I stopped trying to do the challenge. While this one is rather small, I like the border. I have no clue where I got most of the blue fabrics but that is why I joined the challenge in the first place: to use up my stash. I can't believe how much stash I still have.

Anyone want to do a scrap exchange???

The border fabric might have been something an old friend gave me years ago when we first got back in touch. She shared some of her stash with me. While it is louder then what I usually use (remember: I am the fruit and vegetable girl) I LOVE the border!

Should I give it as a donation baby quilt or give it as a gift for Christmas?

Tomorrow, I get my new iphone so I can retire this camera that has been struggling lately! YAY, to my iphone! Even a bad picture still shows my mistake. Oh well....

Here is my July Monochromatic!

I have a few other things to do today, so I will sew the borders on later in the day!

I just looked back at some old pictures of this quilt and realized that there is another row floating around here somewhere. Geez!! Where might it have run off to?
