HO HO HO Merry Christmas!

We just had our annual Christmas party at Morning Star Quilts. The last 4 years the party has been at our home. Sometimes Mark and I cook and other times we potluck. This year Mark and I cooked. Everything was yummy . Jody brought her famous pies, delicious.

Just a few decorations.

Silly girls ?
Presents, we love to fight over door prizes, such fun.


Merry Christmas to all from the staff of Morning Star Quilts,

God bless and Happy Holidays.

Kiss Your Life

Hello Saturday! This has to be one of the prettiest falls we have had in a long time. Today is going to be such a great day. The soup is made, banana nut bread finished, salad spinner out and ready, and the dishes are packed. Pumpkin bars almost in the oven. Where are we going? Well today is the kickoff of a new event at Morning Star quilts. Starting at 3pm today and ending at 3pm tomorrow we are having our Sew Baby Sew Time.A time to sew and get those projects finished or even better started. If this event is as fun as I hope it's going to be we will probably schedule it quarterly. Pictures later.

Friday was a very different day for me and I had a blast. Started out with a horrible headache so I went back to bed and slept for 2 hours. It's amazing what a little sleep does for a person. Instead of blabbing on and on I will share pictures of my day. ( I never got out of my jammies)

Look at those trees!

I just finished this fun quilt. Fabric by Robert Kaufman.

Can't you just smell it? Yummo!

Soups on the way.

One of my works in progress. Fabric from Clothworks - Kinkame. Pattern by Whimsicals.

New project out of Hometown pattern by Rachel Griffith. Moda.

Next project - Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs.

So I will leave you with this thought,

Kiss your life. Accept it, just as it is. Today. Now. So that those moments of happiness you're waiting for don't pass you by.

Energized or Exhausted

Happy Sunday. After a much needed good nights sleep we are kicking back today. We definitely need a day or maybe two of rest. HeHe that won't happen.

Mark and I (aka Morning Star Quilts) went to Roseville to vendor at the Pioneer Quilt Guilds annual quilt show. We setup on Thursday night and worked the booth Friday and Saturday. Great show, great quilts, and great shoppers. We had a blast but we are pooped and glad to be home. The 49ers are playing, fire is crackling, dog at my feet and my chores are almost caught up. What could be better? Oh wait I know what's better, a husband who is in great health and soooooo much help to me. What a keeper!

Here's a peek at our booth and some of the quilts.

Guild quilts,

There were many more great quilts, but these were some of my favorites. So now I must decide am I energized or exhausted? Do I go quilt or nap???

Later.............and God Bless

Missing Market?

So if you know me you know I love Market. Unfortunately its not really feasible for me to go twice a year so every October I get sad knowing Market is happening and I am at home. Well Monday is my 60th birthday eek! and we are with friends in Amador County tasting wine, what a great alternative. The hotel we are staying at was built in the late 1800's, really cool, supposedly haunted if you believe that stuff.
We are enjoying our weekend with our friends Gary and Cinde.

Cinde with Winston before he went to doggie day care.

A picture which made me laugh and think of friends. Friends, such an important part of life. So here's to you all of my wonderful friends!

I'm back!

After a short hiatus at home I am happily back at work. Mark is doing remarkably well after an extensive cancer surgery. Must be all that expert nursing care. I only tied him up once when I found him on the roof preparing for our storm that came through a week ago. I have been a bit tired with all that is going on. Too much stress but things are getting better.

When I walked into the store I was so pleased to see such great displays and new items. So enjoy the pictures and we hope to see you at Annies Star Quilt Guild Quilt show located in Chico ca.
