In with the New

I'm not much of a New Year's Eve celebrater.  Even when I was a young adult I would avoid NYE parties like the plague.  But there is something slightly sad about not doing anything for NYE, so for the last few years, we have been taking ourselves into the city, having dinner and seeing a movie then meandering home about midnight.  It has worked well and last night we did just that.

After a smashingly good martini and lovely dinner we saw Birdman. What a knockout! I'm telling you nothing else, except that it is a one out of the bag - see it if you get the chance.

This quilt has peeped into a couple of posts around the place, but I haven't posted about it since it was finished.

 
Homage to Sallie Ann

It's a beautiful quilt. I'm very happy with it, and although it has been ready to hang for some time, it is still folded in a cupboard.  I hope to get it hung before I get back to work.

Katrina did a superb job of quilting this. Below are a couple of close ups.




I hope you all have a really wonderful 2015,
Deb
