Shame on me for not posting

Well it's been awhile the big day is over and was very quiet nobody home for Christmas this year first time ever. Christmas eve day I cut fabric for my next project called Civil War Chronicals fiqured I'd sew Christmas day as Randy was playing in his shop. Decided to make the border blocks first as there are 68- 6" blocks, this morning I finished them took me 5 morning to get them done, in the pic they are hanging inhalf other wise they'd be on the floor and Cinder (the cat) would be all over them. Next I'll start the centre block maybe tomorrow.
Shawn and Deanne are suppost to be coming home for a New Years/ wedding reception party.

Ritz Cracker is now a top

Just finished Ritz Cracker this morning made it bigger and added a piano border can't believe this top only took 1 jelly roll and 2 charm packs it measures 68.5" x 83" Think I might use muslin for the backing with hopefully a strip of the left over jelly roll vertically to break up the muslin,----- yes I have more of the jelly roll left!!! I loaded the top on the frame but need to buy some muslin if I go that root.

Test over back to sewing

Yesterday was test day for Excel I feel that I did alright could have used a few more minutes to change the page breaks in 2 of the projects but ran out of time. This morning I started quilting Circle of Friends quilt top with a baptist fan panto and I'm running into problems with the applique my darning foot has an open area and it's catching the applique going to get Randy to attach a washer on the bottom of the foot if I knew what to use for an adhesive for metal on metal I would have it done, so I'm on hold til tomorrow I guess.
Well going to the Island is out Randy has some tests to be done on the 23rd and if they find anything he will be having surgery, Autumn and Kris (granddaughter & son) I think are coming for Christmas.
Got to go to Vernon on Thursday as Randy has some lung test, seeing we are there I can get some Christmas shopping done and supplies for baking.

Got my marks for Word

Our instructor for Microsoft Word was at the college and she posted our marks and I got a 98% was I shocked thought I did well in the written but I know I forgot to change the spelling errors on the second page there were 4 small lines deduct 1/2 mark for each error and that would have been my 100% if I would have made the corrections. Well Excel might be a different story not catching the formulas, some of the ladies in my class are going to the college tomorrow to study I will be there too.
Snowed again over night so had to snow blow the driveway again before I went to class. It is starting up again dag nab it. Going to go through our pre- test for Excel that the instructor gave out today and later will have to practice some lessons we went over today.
