    It IS New Years Eve!

    Well, HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!

    What's everyone doing tonight? Some have already celebrated - our friends on the other side of the world and some of us are just starting. I'll be home and signed up to do some online twitter party with the Stitch In Heaven party. Sounds like fun. I never twittered before so I'm sure it will keep me busy and maybe I'll win a prize or two! Wouldn't that be cool!

    Last night I worked on a table runner - got the binding made and sewn on - need to hand sew that down today. I'll post a photo when completely done. It's for a gift so might have to wait until it's been delivered.

    Have a great evening everyone - maybe next year we can talk Jenni into having a party right here!

    Hugs,

    What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish

    Happy New Years to all. DH and I are suppose to go out for dinner and dance with friends but I'm not feeling great and would be happier sitting at my sewing machine! LOL Have a good one!

      NYE...again already?? What happened to 2010?
      Woke up to thunderstorms and almost all the snow is gone! Yea! 50 degrees will be 25 tomorrow morning so it is short lived.
      Can't wait to see pics of your table runner Trish! The Twitter thing sounds fun. I have never used Twitter, maybe I will try in 2011.
      Cleaning today and not sure about tonight. Hate when the BF won't give me a definite plan. We are supposed to go to friends for dinner and play some board games, which is okay with me, but so is staying home.
      After I get my cleaning done I am going to start on cutting out my blocks for the swap. I was going to do it last night but watched Eat, Love, Pray instead. Loved the book and the movie..both made me cry!
      Will check back to see what exciting plans everyone has for tonight!

        Quiet eve at home. Hubby has to work till 9. He is in retail. My son adam is still in so it will be just us most likely. Sunday will bring lots of company and we will be smoking a brisket for them all. Can't get a whole lot of sewing done since Adam is using my sewing room but I did manage to get my dresdan plates done and sewed on them while watching TV. Happy New Year to all and be safe.

          We're staying in and having fondue and cold duck (sort of a sparkling wine). When we first got married all we could afford was cold duck and now (40 years later) it is still our tradition. Happy New Year to everyone!

            My Joe and I always stay home. It's a long habit of staying home and listening for the fire tones to go off so we could respond to a call. It was usually quiet. I think through the 30 years we were medics and firefighters we had maybe 3 calls for drunks and 1 fire, and 1 fight at a bar that ended in injury. It was quiet especially after the "Don't drive drunk" campaigns that our county enacted. It served us well. It was always a quiet evening with no drinking as we were on call. Now we have a glass of Asti Spumanti at midnight and to see the New Year in watching the ball drop in NYC on tv. We don't take calls anymore. I think one year we had a party when we had coverage. Our friends didn't drink either so that was good. We sat around and either played cards or played music and sang. My husband and I play guitar and so do some of our friends. We drank coffee and sang all night. I liked doing that. You can have fun not drinking.
            We wish you all a better year for 2011 and pray for everyone to be healthy and happy.
            We pray that people recover from illness, get their jobs if their out of work and for those who need it to have peace. Love to all of you on this list. May God hold you in the palm of his hand and keep you safe especially those who are so far away from family and friends while you fight for freedom and to protect us during these trying times. Love, Jan

                        It's good to hear everyone is doing well.. I just got news that my friend died today. She has been in the hospital for about 2 weeks.

                              Happy New Year everyone!

                              I am fighting off a cold, but I usually don't go out anyway. I plan on taking inventory of my fabric so I can get some of it used up. I'm going to try and make it to the ball drop unless the cold medicine knocks me out first.

                              Sorry to hear about your friend Sewsoft.

                              I watched that movie a couple of weeks ago Patti. I haven't read the book, but I really liked the movie.

                              Take care everyone!
