Ding Dong Merrily on High......

It has been a lovely week in Sunriver!! We went to the lodge last night for dinner and to see the Christmas lights. It was so cold but so pretty!

Several days with wonderful inspiring, encouraging woman............
An adorable well behaved dog.....
A little wine and a lot of sewing. A great way to lead up to Christmas weekend!!
We managed to do a bit of shopping. Here's what I chose to bind my Jane Stickle quilt with. It is actually bluer in real life.
Here's the scraps I used to put our quiltalong doll quilt together with. (Yep, right after the new year I'll be ready, will you?)
I know I've told many of you already but Merry Christmas.

It has been a JOY blogging with ya'll for another year!!
Love and peace...


  1. It was a great week. Thanks for coming over to Sunriver. You are quite an inspiration! Can't wait to do the quilt-a-long!! Hope your Christmas is great!

  2. I miss going to see the lights at the shrine, always mean to, but get too busy. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas.


  3. What a wonderful time you must have had. Taking time to sew at this busy time of year is a great way to relax. We are celebrating Christmas today with our daughter and family as she is a nurse and will be working over the weekend. So, I will be sewing over the weekend while everyone else is finishing shopping, cooking, and opening presents.
    Have a very good holiday weekend!
