cobblers were here...

well it was another fun evening...altho we were missing a couple cobblers. so i sent left overs home with everyone. i made chili/jalapeno cornbread and all the fixings...sister jana brought a artichoke dip, auntie mary brought a wonderful date desert and carol- pumpkin bars, auntie pat brought kiwi. we always have way to much to eat... it was an early night, but we had fun.


sister jana is taking a class and making a tree skirt, using paper/foundation piecing.  


she kept busy working away...they all humor me with the pictures.... 


carol brought her finished mats...


we all want this one.....


carol made auntie pat this mat using uncle jacks old wool pants..great wool!


carol showed me she was using the sewing hussif i made them all a couple years ago inspired by a wool friend. i think i made 10 in all..each a bit different.
