The Last Thursday of the Month!

I have been pecking away at lots of house projects but all that must be put aside because tomorrow is Breakfast first one for 2015. I have already seen many of my friends since arriving back in Alaska but it will be a real treat to spend the day with them tomorrow. 

Our project is very easy...maybe you have heard of Suzanne McNeill's 10-minute blocks? We are doing one from her Youtube this link.

It is a layer cake or charm pack pattern. Since I am uncontrollably drawn to large quilts I am going with the River Rock crackers (10-inch squares) from Hoffman. The gray dot will be my diamond center for the the blocks. I'm expecting to get a lap-sized quilt completely pieced tomorrow.

More progress on my French Santa ornament.

And hours of stitching has me to this point on a set of six Santa ornaments. Lots of detail in this Bucilla kit designed by Mary Engelbreit.


We do a potluck at Breakfast Club. I decided to take a pesto pasta salad I found on the Pioneer Woman's blog. I like the idea of the crisp romaine lettuce with the pasta. I'll let you know how it tastes...I will mix everything together on site so no tasting prior to the event!

I can't wait to share all the show and tell quilts the ladies bring tomorrow.
