Today my best friend in the world is coming over for our post-Christmas shopping adventure. Ok, so what if I do not have any money left (and I really don't). I go along with her to get all the huge sales at the holiday shops...she buys and I ooh and ahh. I will be taking her out to a great little Mexican restaurant called Funchos, which is my only real spending today. Total cost: about 20 bucks. Time with a friend who is unconditionally true to you: Priceless!
My husband got me a huge pile of quilting magazines for my stocking and now I am in the process of picking out a new quilt to make over the vacation. I have been dying to make an entire quilt using the churn-dash block. There is another one that I love in the magazine. I'll see if I can scan a picture in to look at later.
The quilt on the top is a variation of the churn dash and the one on the bottom is traditional. I have to decide which one I like better. (I got these pictures online.)
Oh!! Last night my husband and I watched THE KINGDOM!! What a great, intense film about Saudi Arabia. Very interesting and suspenseful. Makes me even more proud and fortunate to live here in America, even with its faults.

I will try to post pictures tomorrow of some of the things that have kept me busy all year. I teach 7th and 8th graders English and when I am not doing that, I am reading, sewing, cooking or just hanging around with friends and family. We truly try to keep it simple here. Hope to learn much this year and to make more friends!
