December Happenings

As a Quilter...

Piecing, piecing and more piecing.

Going out for breakfast.

Enjoying each other around the fire.

We spent a good part of Christmas day playing progressive rook. 

While everyone played rook I watched the grands.

Enjoying every minute being a Grandma.

Autumn made coasters to match cups for
 some special hand made gifts.

Rebecca made Lattes for the employes at 
Patchwork Plus.  Such a treat.
