So proud!!! This is one of my students who made a strip quilt using all LSU fabrics. He pieced it. Had it long arm quilted , then he made bias binding and put it on. Machine sewn to the front then hand sewn to the back. He entered it in a 4-H competition and WON GRAND CHAMPION OVERALL DIVISION !!!!

Good Bye 2013!

As this year comes to and end I look back on what was (for my husband and I ) a rough year!! I do my best to only focus on te good things, there were plenty of those, too! I have a new grandson!
Red hair and blue eyes! Yes indeed!

My little daughter graduated from nursing school.
And this is what Santa brought me! EEEK! 

Kitchen Aid Pasta Press

Now, I think I'll go make some pasta! Maybe I'll sew tomorrow :)

This is the ship we were on. The Carnival Elation. I LOVE the 'cruise" part of the cruise. id not care for Cozumel. It's was too hot. I know, it's December, and it's not really hot like the Summer months, but still, I don't like HOT! I told my husband that I could not believe that I actually paid to go someplace hot!

However, cruising along....When we docked at Progresso we took a bus to Merida. That is where you will find  Merida’s Cathedral of San Ildefonso and Church of the Third Order of Jesus in Mexico. The oldest church in the Americas. Started in 1561 and completed in 1598. THIS was the highlight of the trip.

So, if you cruise to Progresso, Yucatan, Mexico, take the excursion to Merida, the capital, just to see this church. We were allowed to explore the church as well as take pictures and video.

Here's a photo that will give you an idea of the size of those doors and the church.

Ok, on the fun -on- board side, our cruise director, Hennie, was by far the most entertaining person on board. He was great! Also my husband participated in the Hairy Chest Competition. Yes, indeed, ladies. I am married to a man with a VERY hairy chest. Keeps me warm :) He would kill me if I put up a photo, but I can not control what goes on youtube ;)

Lazy weekend

This was a lazy no-sew weekend. I just could not get in the mood. I looked at a few interesting blogs. Played games on Facebook. Ugh! Such a waste of time, I know.  Reading a book that is going nowhere. I really need to get moving on a few projects.

 Getting ready for Thanksgiving. My oldest (military son) is frying a turkey this year. Hubby and I will drive up and have dinner with him and daughter-in-law. I am also bringing a surprise. SSSHHHH!!! My 82 year old dad is driving here Wednesday. Kids don't know that Paw is coming! They will be so happy to see him. Plus I get to have my dad to myself (sort of) for 3 whole days! Then I get to go on a 5 day cruise with hubby! God is good! I am blessed!!
