January 2015

Happy New Year!  
 The end of the year was so busy with many things that my Blog suffered from no posts!  I had some positive results with eco-dyeing silk scarfs and plan to do more.  I didn't give any as gifts this year because I'm not totally satisfied with my results yet.  More to come!

I had a wonderful Holiday Season and Merry Christmas with my family and friends. I love having each and every one of you in my life.


 I had a few of my friends over for "Holiday Dinner at Diane's" and craft time.  The craft I had chosen was too complicated to finish before they left for home.  We will get together sometime to finish the "snowmen ornaments." My friend Gerri brought along a wonderful little craft to do.  We made small paper pocketbooks!  I put mine on the Christmas Tree as an ornament. She saved the day!

I completed the queen size log cabin quilt I've been making for Ronnie!  I worked on and off for a few years sewing the scrap fabric blocks.  I had it professionally quilted then I made and attached the binding.  He was Very Pleased with his gift.


My children and their spouses gave me a wonderful Christmas gift.  We will be going to RI in June to the Newport Flower Show and Mansion Tours. I know we will have a wonderful time and I'm very excited and looking forward to it!  Speaking of flowers:

I thought my amaryllis was going to have only one blossom this year.  Not so!  It has three and it's such a beautiful flower.  And both of my Christmas cactus blossomed beautifully for Thanksgiving!

My dear friends Muffie and Norman gave me a gift certificate to Dharma Trading Co. "your one stop shop for fiber art supplies"!


Wishing Everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year!

and Remember to Play a Little Each Day!
