I stayed home today on this News Years Eve and did a bunch of sewing. I am doing Pat Sloan’s 2016 mystery quilt. It’s free and on her website I am using up fabrics that I have on hand. I have never done a mystery quilt before. This will be a pretty sweet garden themed quilt with 16 inch blocks. I love it! Feel free to join in it is a monthly block.


After Christmas, we (my husband, son and I) went to see my family. We have the week off so we had some fun planned. After seeing the family,  we went to an IMAX theater and saw Star Wars. I wasn’t disappointed. No spoilers here but I loved it so much that I want to see this movie again!

On Monday, we went to the Detroit Institute of Art before the Quick Lane bowl at Ford Field. It was a great game with Central Michigan University vs Minnesota’s Golden Gophers. Awesome football in a great stadium. I have to say that it was a fun day even though the weather turned bad with ice. We did some shopping and took our son to a dream guitar store. Unfortunately, we came home to lots of snow and about 4 ft piled up at the end of the drive. Took the guys a really long time to get it opened up.

Here are some family pics from my parents home.


I think tonight it may be warm enough to walk downtown here in Gaylord to see the second annual ball drop. It was so cold last year I couldn’t bear the cold. Gonna ring in the New Year with football and a ball drop!

I am going to make some resolutions but I haven’t fully decided what they are gonna be. Mostly about health and getting a couple of things done. More about that tomorrow.
