An unusual queen size quilt, a commission Jennifer took on to piece then asked me to quilt it. A bit different to the usual, and with every new project I learn something.

These are for the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association to which DH belongs. They have an annual reunion in the summer each year and some of the wives who quilt construct 4-6 quilts for presentation. My part of the mission is to quilt them, others piece the blocks and construct the tops then send them to me. After quilting I send them on to the person who will bind them and attach the labels.
So here is the third with a simple star and flag design.

With son and family we headed off to Boston for our annual Christmas trip. Disappointingly the weather was mild in the Boston area, actually warmer than Phoenix!
Kids and dogs all enjoyed the fresh snow
After which a nice nap or two was necessary!
In order to be ready for the next round of adventures!
Where to next Mum?
How about a stroll around a quaint Vermont village
Bourbon tasting at a local distillery
A visit to an ice cream factory
And an interesting store with everything from hardware to clothing
We came across a wonderful coffee shop seemingly out in the middle of "nowhere"!
Not to mention the piece de resistance, the Alchemist Brewery in walking distance of our resort!
This was our New Year's Eve treat, Dom Perignon 2006!
Then back to Boston, almost 4 hours of driving.
While our very snuggly Nova always finds a warm body to lay on!
The boy baking cupcakes with his cousins. What you see in the Ball jars is jalapena jelly, I had just made.
A wonderful holiday always over too soon and then back to Phoenix and real life!
We gathered as a family a few days before Christmas because we knew that everyone would be going different ways on Christmas Day.
The whole family, how blessed we are.

The annual VIP day at school, and the construction of the amazing gingerbread house!
