criss cross coasters

If you look closely you can see that these are some of the crisscross coasters that I made in Nov. Just took me awhile to upload my camera to the computer. I still have some of them but I gave alot away in my Christmas cards.
Dave's back at work for the day. I have to find out if my Monday bible study is on as I missed the last one.
It's hard to believe that Christmas is over for another year.
I go back to work again on Jan 2 for 5 days. Jennifer, my daughter, got her learners permit for driving. She is quite excited. She is almost 15. Here in Alberta a new driver has to have had their permit for a year before they can try the road test. They can't try it before they are 16.
Happy quilting, more later.

picture edited out as requested
I had a new picture uploaded the other day, can't remember which one , had the note all done and it all get lost while it was publishing to post.
We had a quiet Christmas. Had a full hot turkey dinner but we all were in our housecoats for the meal. It was still very nice.
I was the only one that had to get dressed on D.26. I had to work evenings then and D.27. The 26th was a nice shift but we had an unexpected death on D.27 about 7:30pm. I really feel that it was best for this resident but that didn't make it any easier to deal with. Especially hard on the family.
I have a few days off now. I go back to work on Jan. 2(Wed). Hope our newest resident has settled down. He is very aggressive and difficult to manage.
I haven't done much sewing lately. I did get into my sewing room but only pinned somemore scrap blocks for tags and my charity quilts.
I will try to upload my camera in the next few days.
Happy New Year to all,
:) Carol

Jennifer came home from Grandma's on Sat and had to set up the tree. I had not done it yet. She did a great job. It was all lit up and all the gifts under it when I came home Sat. Evening.
Hope you all have a great day tomorrow. Will blog later.

I'm working one more evening tonight and then I'm off for 2 days back for 2 evenings and off for 5 days.
Maybe I'll actually get into my sewing room over that time.
Merry Christmas to everyone and all the best in the new year.
Hopefully I'll also get to uploading all my recent pictures from my camera so I'll have more to show you.
Bye for now.
Happy quilting,

It's been awhile since I've had time to write.

My MIL fell. We've been there on my days off. Although they have hispeed I didn't get much computer time. Someone else on it alot.

Husband and daughter playing online games.

I am home now but working evenings till Sunday. Then off for 2 and back on evenings on the 26 and 27.

My MIL is home from hospital and during fairly well. We did leave Jennifer there to help out for this week. Her school marks are in the 90's or high 80's and she got all assignments for this weeks so she'll be okay missing a week of school.

I haven't had any time for sewing but maybe on my days off coming up. I did make over 40 small wheat bag for gifts for my coworkers. I got them all ready to take to work yesterday morning. Didn't have alot of time to do anything else as I couldn't get the printer to print so I had to write the directions out by hand. That took awhile. But they are all at work now and some have them to take home.

While I guess I'll close for now. I'm up to get Chris off to school.

Happy quilting,

picture and info edited out as requested

I just never know when the picture upload feature will work.

We well be heading back to Blairmore this weekend. My MIL is still in the hospital after a fell, fracturing a lumbar vertebrae. Not sure yet when she will be home. Dave's Dad also has Alziehmer's so we were a little worried about how he will manage as well. We were there for 2 days and he seems to be doing ok for now.

They have high speed. I may get a chance to get online but I'll have to try and remember my web addresses for there.

Hope everyone has a great Christmas season and all the best in the New Year.

Happy quilting,

Tues. Dec. 11
Hi everyone. I tried tonight to upload a picture and it would not work. So you just get a note.
I've been away for 2 days. My MIL fell and fracture a lumbar vertebrae. She is now in the hospital. My FIL has Alzhiemers and we were not sure how he would do on his own. Seems to be okay at the moment. Dave and I went down Sun. evening and returned this afternoon. We had our annual eye check ups and he waited 6 mos for an appt so didn't want to change them. I also have to work tomorrow. So since she is still in hospital we came home.
Kids got themselves off to school. Well I should say that Jenn did. Chris has been home sick for 2 days. Looks like a cold/ maybe the flu. We will see what happens tomorrow.
Dave and I will both be gone to work when they get up for school.
We are going to wait till Lillian gets out of hospital to go back down. Dave and Jenn may go on Wed or Thurs. My MIL wants me to not miss by Christmas quilting potluck. So I'll likely not go back down till Friday or sat. It's a 2 and 1/2 hour drive south of here. They live in Blairmore(part of Crowsnest pass) just above the US border.
I am then off till Wed. again. So we will see how things go for them. She is walking a little but has trouble getting up and down.
I was online a bit down there but didn't get to any of my blogging sites to read or write.
Hopefully pictures will upload soon.
Better go and get things ready for work tomorrow.
Happy quilting and bye for now.

I did get a small amount of sewing done yesterday. Started on a heart shaped pin cushion. I just have the tie on the top to do now.

I really need to get started on my secret pal gift this week. Need it done for next Thurs.
I also put my name down for a cookie exchange at work. Have to get on that too.

I worked nights at PLC on Sunday. We weren't sure if my car would start in the morning. Forecast was -25. Dave drove me to work. Went to work himself early and then picked me up at 7:30 and came home. He then worked from home because his computer isn't working at work. He gets a new one Wed. He is coming home this morning for the rest of the day as well.
Nice to have him home but somewhat changes what I do during my day off.
Well, I'd better get dressed as I need to go find this new post office that our parcels are being delivered to now. and pick up a few groceries.
Happy quilting.
