I didn't get much done in the fiber arts- quilting department, other than a few cards & 2 more heart shaped pin cushions. My sister Em had another birthday (thank God), & my friend Ilene.
Friday we fianlly finished Christmas. We went over to our friends ZTrace & Dave's & had dinner & gave them their Xmas gift. I also finally took all the decorations that had been setting on the guest room bed with the door closed since January, & got them in their proper boxes. I had to wait for Warren to get the boxes down from a high shelf, as I was afraid I'd hurt the shoulder that I'm trying to wait until May for surgery on. Broccoli has been hanging out with me. Isn't he cute?
Warren has been working on his bar. I helped him finish the trim around the ceiling on Saturday.
Here is the front on the card I made for our friend John, for his 60th birthday.
& here's the inside. It's a picture that I took when we were at the Bakery in Girdwood, after blueberry picking, & John was enjoying a cinnamon role. They have really good ones there.
This is one of 4 cards I made, all similar. I sent one to Ilene & one to Em, & another to my friend Mary, who just lost her husband this weekend.
I made chocolate dipped strawberries to take to John's birthday dinner. The dinner was wonderful. Mindy made cornish game hens with a pomegranite juice with interesting spices & pistachios on them. They were the best I've ever had.
John's cake seemed something of a fire hazard.
I thought we might have to throw it out in the snow! Word of advice here, you really shouldn't cover the top of a cake with those candles that can't be blown out completely. We had a tough time extinguishing them without getting burned!
Here I have to show you the expression on John's face when he opened his gift from Dr Pete Schaab. Pete is Mindy's boss, & he decided to give John & Mindy both a special gift. He bought them tickets to fly to Hawaii.
Sorry for the low fiber content!
