I belong to a UFO group and once a month we take one full day to sew.  It's a Friday one month and Saturday the next.  We start sewing at 9 (or is it 10) in the morning and sew till 6pm.  We take a picture of what we're working on and post it.  We check in periodically ro show where we are at.  Friday I worked on a fall quilt attempting to get all the blocks done.  I got them 2/3's of the way done so will try to work on them a little more today. 

This is one of the blocks of the quilt I'm working on.  It's not flowers in there, it's actually turkey's:) lol  The colors were so perfect for what I wanted that's what I went with.   Hope to get some more done on it today.  I seem to get distracted very easily these days.  Have a great day!

New York

Well, we went to New York the 14th through the 21st of Dec. and what an incredible trip it was. My brother Frank, my sister Loretta, my daughter Jo and a dear friend of ours Dianna all went. We stayed in an apartment in Manhattan which was really nice because it gave us so much more freedom. We all took different pictures of the various places we went so I have some and the others have the rest. Soon we'll be able to get them all together. We saw the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, went to see In The Heights at the Richard Rogers Theater, went to the Empire State Bldg, Central Park, Times Square and on and on and on. We even got caught in a blizzard. When we went to the theater it was snowing, but when we came out it was a blizzard! lol We had a ball. We hiked to a restaurant and had a late dinner, then hiked down to the subway and took it to within two blocks of where we were staying. The snow was absolutely gorgeous, a dream come true when you're in NY this time of year. Here are a couple of pic's one from the Empire State Bldg. (it was foggy so visibility was low) and the other of the Plaza Hotel. The first one is Times Square, which is always packed with people!!
