January Cobbler Get-Together!

Cobbler Carol arrived on scene first!
 as always great food!

we celebrated sister Jana's January Birthday!
Carol P made a yummy bar desert 
that i need to get the recipe together for... 
Carmel, Marshmallows, Frito's Oh My!!
i made "better than sex" cake! YUM!
 Auntie Pat made her a Knitted dish rag and Embroidered dish Towel!

then we had some show and tell!
Carol P made these quilts for her Nephews using her late brothers T-shirts..

sister Jana was making a baby doll quilt for those granddaughters to use with
the dolls and strollers...
 i finely finished something! sister Jana and i both bought a kit for this like 8 years ago...
she finished hers last her or more!
 this is sister Janas!
 Carol is always working on something wonderful with wool!

and she wanted some wool noodles so my lil cutter got some use!!
to funny it took 3 to do it!!

and of course we love to look thru patterns, magazines and chat!!

 sister Jana is working on another wall hanging. she made Carol P one for Christmas!
hopefully Carol will bring it next month!
so once again it was great to get together and catch up!
we missed Auntie Mary and Joyce as they are basking in the sun of California
and of course Beth is our long distant cobbler in California! so it was just the 5
of us and all that food!!

enjoy your last couple days of January!                  Jody

My Friend Mary..

whom i met many years ago while stationed in Rapid City, SD. We were both doing a craft show, she is a little bitty gal with so much energy and we have been friends ever since. she left for Okinawa and my husband/I moved to MN retiring from the Air Force.
Mary and her Man Laddie have been overseas... close to 20 years i bet. i have always loved Okinawa and considered it the best of all my travels...  they are now about to embark on a new adventure and moving to New Mexico! altho it may or not take a while due to paperwork etc.. i wish them the best and am happy that they will be state side!!
i also got another box in the mail from Okinawa! and thought id share with you! love love as always! thank you Mary!!

 enlarge the tea pot and notice the great detail! love the monkey and frogs on the lid!!

we are getting snow today with more below 0 temps coming, Auntie Mary and Uncle "Doodles" are enjoying the sun in California!
Enjoy you two!!

A New Year Means...

New Starts...
my son Jason and wife Jessica moved home ( 40 miles from me ) a couple weeks ago from Duluth, Mn (a 4 hour drive), to buy a house and open their own Chiropractic Clinic! so nice to have them close by the rest of us!! we stopped in to bring flowers and wish them so much luck on their first day!! Geez what a world wind it has been for them! Grandbaby #3 has been lots of help! and started her first day of a new day care, best of all she will see her cousin there! Grandbabe #2!

and Sister Jana had a Birthday on the 2nd! Happy Birthday sister!
the Grandbabes loved their heirloom quilts using papa Marks Jeans/military fatiques.
