This week has been a warm-up after the cold of last weekend. With all the relatives coming to Minnesota for my MIL's funeral, it has been nice that the weather cooperated. There was one morning that was picture postcard perfect. 


Well, I am now on my private quilting retreat in Fargo, ND.  SIL and DD left this morning for the Dominican Republic. They will be gone for a week. I have already finished ten cancer bags for the Coborn's Cancer Center in St. Cloud, MN.

On the way up here, I stopped at The Old Creamery Quilt Shop in Randall, MN. Found some fabrics for the Farm Girl Vintage club project. I think I now will have a nice variety. Picked up some fun textures and can't wait to start on the blocks for next month's meeting.


The plan for this week is to work on UFO's. It sure would be nice to get some projects done. The project I am currently working on was a "Buck Block" program from last summer. The blocks were made using a Missouri Star book. Now I am putting sashing and cornerstones on.

BooHoo!! The Minnesota Vikings lost. Everytime they get so close and then lose it. Each time this happens, we begin to hope for next year. Oh well! It is only a game.

On December 31st, my youngest daughter got engaged to a very nice man. They are so cute together. Brenda is 39 and Scott is 41. Neither have been married and they have waited a long time to find someone. His only drawback is that he is from Wisconsin and a Green Bay Packers fan. It is fun to have the border battle going on during football season.

I joined a new club at Colorz Quilt Shop in Brainerd, MN. Colorz just reopened under new ownership. The club is "Farm Girl Vintage." It is not my usual type of fabric, so I just had to purchase some new stuff because I really liked the look. Makes me think of a combination of 30's and 40's.

Cute  fabrics purchased for club. 

Book required for club.
After club, it was fun to go sew at Irene's house. Another friend, Maureen, joined us for sewing also. It was a fun afternoon of eating, sewing, and talking. We are going to try to get together for sewing each month when I drive up to Brainerd for club.

Step one of Allietare (Bonnie Hunter's 2015 mystery) is completed and I have started on step two. Still need to finish piecing Grand Illusion (2014 mystery). I hope to get a lot done on both of these quilts while house and dog sitting for my daughter that lives in Fargo ND. This always becomes private retreat time. Eat, sew, read, sleep whenever I want. Wonderful!

Part one of Allietare
We had sad news on Saturday morning. My mother-in-law passed away. She made it to the tremendous age of 103 years. 

Hoping to catch up with what everyone has been doing. Make sure to hop over to Patchwork Times to see what others are doing.

Well, another new year has rolled around. Time to start the stash report with a clean slate. Goal for this year is to whittle the stash down in size. I realize that I will sometimes need to purchase fabric just to complete a project but do hope to mainly use from the stash. 

 Looking forward to following how all the rest of the stash reporters are doing. 

Let's all have a great Quilty 2016!!
