ARE WE READY FOR-----



YEP--TOMORROW IS------"CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY"!!!!!!

OH--DEAR---IT'S A GOOD THING--I HAVE SOME MORE!!!!




So have some fun and bake a chocolate cake today!!!!



WELL---I am either "one" month late---or--"eleven" months early----
But here is a finish---

My Christmas Wish--bom by Gail Pam is all finished==

I hand quilted a feather type design down each column--in a multi colored thread of red/green/white--


I hand quilted around each of the letters going around the outside of the letter--in an off white thread---


and then I added a bow and a button at the top of each square--which makes it look like a package--I think!!!!



My girl-friend, Anne. came today for our quilting time--then we did go out for lunch--we each had some homemade soup today!!!



then spent the rest of the day hand quilting on Maddy and working on a couple projects--so kept busy!!!


What did you do today??????



HUGS, DI&CO.
