I am still here.....

It's been a long time since I posted ...way back in October was the last time, but that doesn't mean to say that I have not been looking at your blogs and sometimes leaving a comment. 

I am working on two quilting projects at  the moment, a wall hanging and a quilt for my bed.  Photo,s coming soon.   Our quilting group has a Christmas dinner and gift exchange, this year it is in January.  Just finished making a gift for the person who's name I drew.  Can't show it here because I believe she looks at my blog.

On Saturday, my dd2 hosted  Christmas dinner for her in-laws and I am always invited.  She never has a traditional dinner, each year it is different.  This year, everyone brought a dish which is traditionally served in their or their parents place of birth.  What a feast, we had food from Belgium,  Poland,  Greece, China and England with a bit of Canada thrown in. I took brussel sprouts and a trifle.  After dinner they decide what the theme will be for next year, our decision, the entire meal will consist of ---appetizers--.

I would like to wish all of the people that read my blog:

             Merry Christmas
and a Happy, Healthy and  Prosperous  New Year

Sounds a really interesting way to celebrate Christmas, it must be nice to taste foods from different places without having to travel there.
