9 Patch Pattern used for Christmas Quilt

I found some Christmas fabric in one of my fabric storage bins
and decided to make a simple 9 Patch pattern quilt. I always advise those
who are making a quilt for the first time to use either a 9 Patch or
a 4 Patch quilt pattern with about a size 6 inch square. It is a traditional
way to use fabric and is easy to learn. Also, measure the bed where you plan to use the quilt. This quilt will be size 92" x 84"--a good size for
my queen-size bed.Yes, the pink block had wrinkles. I took them out when I
saw this photo. Sweet. 

Most popular item at Inaugural Party was life-size photo of POTUS, Donald J. Trump


All dressed up for fun party on Jan. 20, 2017

      So happy to be going out to a fun party and felt like getting all dressed up. Maybe I
needed a splash of red to go with blue dress and white fur collar. YAY

Back of fancy blue dress

    This is truly one of the fanciest dresses I have ever worn. It was included in a donation
I helped to distribute to the area homeless. No one wanted this dress. It was in the back of
my car in a box waiting for someone to ask for it, so I decided to wear it this one special time.
Fun, fun, fun.

Wore fancy blue dress and REAL FOX fur collar to Inauguration Party, Jan. 20, 2017

I was invited to an Inaugural Party last night, Jan. 20, 2017, so
I attended it. So happy to celebrate election of  POTUS, Donald. J. Trump.
Wonderful to be with others who were celebrating.
Cake auction was big event of the night; plenty of tasty looking pastries.
None for me; so happy to be keeping the weight off.

Fabric from donations used to make Elsa and Anna capes

While searching in my fabric box for cloth to use to piece a quilt, I found this purple/pink colored cloth and reminded me of the cape from the moive "Frozen," I decided to make a cape for Eva, my son's niece. She has a neighbor she often plays with so I made her a blue cape. They can play Elsa and Anna. I think I'll make a dress to go with the blue cape since I have some cloth left for it.
