Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas GiveAway

This time of year somehow encourages you to reconnect with those who the "business of life" has disconnected you from. I was blessed yesterday when I was able to meet my friend, quilter and former neighbor Twilene for coffee!  We lived on a sweet cul du sac when the boys were growing up and Twilene and her husband Jerry's house was at the top of the cul du sac...oh the 4th of July celebrations we would have!  This photo was taken on a cruise where they celebrated their 50th Anniversary in September.  Time keeps marching on, life keeps adding items to our list...but, I encourage you to stop and reach out to someone you have been missing.

After coffee with Twilene I headed over to Sew Many Quilts for my stitchery group with Linda.  I have high hopes of someday...maybe by Halloween 2013 of finishing this project.

This how far I have gotten...since a year ago, lol.  And to top it off I thought I was being so smart using the Transfer Eze without reading the directions.  Turns out I was supposed to color the piece before I started stitching.  Now, I will have to figure out how to do it afterwards.  But in reality, isn't quilting like life~about being flexible and trying to figure out how to make lemonade out of lemons.

Now for the winner of Day 6's Give Away!!!  Gayle, who said "What a fun edible wreath you had for eating!  The home tour is delightful!  Would love to win your pattern giveaway!

Day 7's Give Away is a cute pattern by Terry Atkinson!  If you are interested, leave a comment and be a registered follower.  It comes with instructions for 3 different sizes!
