December BOMs +Another Flimsy!

Can y’all believe 2022 is less than 24hrs away?! Where does the time go? We can all attest that it waits for no one! With that being said, I just celebrated my half-century birthday on December 16th. And I had a party! If it wasn’t my first birthday party ever, I can’t remember ever having another one. I hosted an ornament exchange party with about a dozen friends. It was so much fun and delicious! Here’s a pic of the birthday girl.

And here’s a close-up of a “dirty” snowman cheeseball that Madonna made. He was delicious!

Now on to quilty matters. Here’s the last block in Jen’s 2021 Monthly Color Challenge. The color was olive, inspired by….olives.

And this beauty is block 2 of Build A Quilt 5 (BAQ). I’m so smitten w/these Holly Jolly fabrics!

And last but not least…my crossplus flimsy! What do you think? My daughter’s b-day is Jan 16 but Esperanza needs to go into the shop. So the way things are looking now she probably won’t get her quilt until my February trip to Phoenix for Quiltcon 2022. Sadly, I did not win the APQS giveaway, but CONGRATS!! to Diane M. of Texas!

And speaking of QuiltCon 2022, will you be there? I’m planning to spend at least 1 day at the show with a few local friends, but I am not taking any classes or lectures. Let me know if you are going, it would be fantastic to meet IRL (in real life)!

A Thread for Life

I know the One I have believed in and am persuaded that He is able to guard what has been entrusted to me until that day. 1Tim1:12

  1. Happy Birthday, my December birthday pal! All those goodies look yummy. Your Crossplus quilt top really turned out well – I’m sorry about Esperanza needing some work, but you’ll get the top done soon! Happy New Year!

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ZENIA!!! You are the poster child for 50 for sure. Your Cross Plus quilt is so, SO fabulous and I love your BAQ block, too. So sad to hear that your Esperanza is in the shop. Thinking about how we anthropomorphize our sewing machines and name them, did she check into rehab or has she had a nervous breakdown and gone to the sanatorium for a spell? Or maybe she’s just “getting some work done” and she’ll be back, better than ever, once her bandages are off and the swelling goes down? ;-). I hope it’s nothing major. I was TOTALLY rooting for you to win that APQS contest. Happy New Year, Happy Birthday to you AND your daughter, and happy quilting to you!
