Blog Abandonment.......At last, a reference from Kevin the Quilter!

It's been quite a while since last I posted here.
I promise you I am not a redneck that leaves his Christmas lights up
all year round.  Now.....if you do that......that's your business......I don't.

When my blogging pal Joy emailed me about abandoning my blog....
well, I suppose that was the jolt I needed to sit down (with what little time I have)
and post something!  Thanks Joy!

Big news!
Come visit me at Quilt Con in Austin!
I will be working in booth 404,
the Homestead Hearth/Sara J Designs booth!
I would love to meet you!

Christmas Recap 

I thank God for my family!
We had a wonderful Christmas together!

These little girls did too!
It wasn't the same without
Sophia opening up her presents this year.

Momma and Daddy are like little kids on Christmas morning!

Sis and her delicious Red Velvet Cake!

I was so happy to be able to visit my Aunt Flossie Sue
in her nursing home.

I gave her this flannel quilt I had made
and she absolutely loved it!
Giving quilts at Christmas time is so joyful.

As you all know, I take the last part of the year off using my vacation time.
When January rolls around, I am back at it.......but, this year......
after being based in Chicago for 19 years, I changed my base to Denver!
My seniority moved up quite and bit, and I am being reunited with old
flight attendant friends.

 Runway ready.......Airport runway that is.....

 Commuting friends......

Seriously, how could you not like this smiley guy!

I hadn't seen this gal in at least 15 years!
I am surprised we recognized each other!

You never know what you will find when
cleaning the plane..........YUCK!

My friend Sam and I completed another
year of recurrent training.......so we are good
to fly another year now.

On a sad note.....I did lose a very good flight attendant
friend.  Many of my flight attendant friends and I 
attended his services and placed roses on his casket.
So very sad.

February is birthday 
month around here!

Mom got some chocolate covered strawberries
from my friend Mike.  She LOVES these things!

Bubs is 16!
How can that be?
Mom is still 29 and holding......
It's so awesome they share the same birthday!

I can't believe how big he is getting.......he has always
wanted to be as tall as me......and he is almost there!

And Sugar Doll is interviewing at Veterinary Schools!
She has done so well with her studies.
Her birthday is later this month........

Some sewing.......

There has been a lot of hotel sewing for me.....
especially with the piecing of blocks for
Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mystery

This was pretty intense piecing.

 Her quilts are always so nice and scrappy!

Catching you all up!
Hope to do a better job blogging!
Thanks for all of your encouragement!
Keep on Quilting!
