Friday night sewing with Heidi and Bobbi and Christmas celebrations.

I had planned on sewing and getting my Crazy 8 quilt top together. I did sew on it but I didn't get it all together.  It's still laying on my kitchen table and I'm still sewing on it as I walk through..

I just wasn't in the "mood" to sew.  I had the TV on and wanted to watch some of the Christmas shows on...I'm a romantic and the Falalala Lifetime shows are just my cup of tea sometimes.  Anyway, I did work on my Crazy 8 quilt top but I also started on a new knit pattern.  It's very easy and I thought I would get more of it done but I didn't...Yes, it's easy but I had to rip out a few times as I wasn't paying attention to the design and got off not once but twice...  I probably would have finished it if I didn't have to  rip out.

 Here's a picture of my Crazy 8 quilt in progress:

Here's the One Row Lace Scarf I started working on last night.  It's alot of fun.  One of the ladies at the Knitting group showed it to me on Thursday night and I really liked it. She said I could find the pattern on Ravelry and I can click here and get the pattern. It is on Turvid's blog...

Here's what I got done. 

I want to make several of these and give to friends and charity too...  I have alot of extra yarn just sitting around begging to be made up and this pattern is so sweet, a great combination...

Today, I went to my quilt guild's Christmas tea.  It was alot of fun and I got to see several friends I don't get to see very often.  We have a daytime group and a night time group. I go to the night time group,  as I still work.  The ladies in the day time don't all come to the night group and we only get to see each other on these special parties or get togethers.  It was a wonderful time and so much fun to be with these special friends. 

Tonight, all of my family, kids, grandkids,husband and all are getting togethe over at my MIL's for dinner.  Just a get together, not Christmas.  We just haven't all been together at her house for a long time and she misses that. So, we will go over there and visit her for a short time..

Tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to a Christmas open house. This is my favorite place to go at Christmas time and I love going. My MIL will go with me and she enjoys it too. I'll take pics and show you.  My friend and her husband decorate their house and bake all kinds of wonderful desserts and make all kinds of cute ornaments and invite everyone. She's an ex quilt shop owner and is still teaching quilting at a LQS and she invites 250-300 people.  Every room has a tree and is decorated with quilts.  It is always the hi-lite of the season for me.  I see alot of my friends and enjoy looking at all the beautiful quilts on display.  I'll show you the wonderful pics tomorrow.  til next time....happy sewing,
