Fa-La-La-La-La


21 triangles left to do! I can't remember what my other goal was but my new one is to get the triangles quilted before Christmas! I can't think of anything better to give myself. (Actually that's not true, but that's another story!!)
I really just wanted to share some of my weekend with you but felt compelled to put in a quilt photo. I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing my Jane Stickle quilt.
One of Portland, Oregon's beautiful bridges at dusk.


 The Scandinavian fair at the Memorial Coliseum. Complete with Vikings!!
And Swedish dancers.

Our evening was topped off by a light parade in Forest Grove with Santa closing it out.

I couldn't think of a better way to start my December holidays!!

If you want to see one more fun thing I did you'll have to zip over to Get to Goal, my other blog.

  10. I love seeing your DJ quilt. It really keeps me plugging away at mine. Although, I am moving so slowly I cannot imagine getting to the point of actually quilting it. Good luck meeting your Christmas deadline.

  11. I want to see more of your DJ--as in spread it out and take a photo of the whole thing. I'm sure you have shared it before, but for those of us who haven't been in blogland very long, this is a treat. I applaud your completion goal and wish you well with it.
    Looks like you had a great weekend of holiday fun!!

  19. Don't worry one bit about showing your Dear Jane progress! It is amazing.
    The fest looks like fun!

  20. I think it's unanimous--don't worry about showing your DJ. Whether we've finished one, are actively working on one, have let ours slide to the UFO category, or if we just admire the project--we can't see them too often.

    Looks like a fun time, but that Viking is scary. You brave gal, showing a smile next to the scary man.

  21. I'll never tire of seeing your DJ. I don't have the fortitude to start one so I continue to admire yours. Yes, what a fabulous gift to give yourself, the perfect finish to a year of quilting.

    Happy Sewing and Merry Christmas

  23. Everytime I see your Jane I think of mine. She is missing somewhere in the many boxes I have packed with fabric and WIP's. Yours is so beautiful. I think I'm going to have to start all over. Hugs
