One more month of blocks to go and then the borders.
This is one of the quilts from my applique clubs that I am currently teaching. I am teaching this one at Quilts Etc. in Sandy, Utah.
The other, is my Paper Doll quilt that I am teaching at Material Girls in South Jordan, Utah.
You can click on the buttons on the lower right by the same names to see all of the other blocks completed so far.
When our extended family gets together...we are quite a large group, which sometimes limits games that we can all play together....but not BINGO!
We always play and everyone who gets a bingo, gets to choose a small wrapped gift. The gifts are color coded with wrapping paper so that we know if it's an adult prize or a prize for a child. Gifts usually come from the dollar store...
We also throw horseshoes and have tournaments by drawing for partners and then going by double elimination rules....will you think I am strange if I tell you that I really like to throw horseshoes....some folks take it pretty seriously around here.
In the town where I live, every 4th of July is our "Town Days" celebration and they always have a big horseshoe throwing contest.....would I be bragging too much if I told you that I have won
3 first place trophy's and 2 second place trophy's in the womens division?
Of course, family ROOTS are important to me....how could I do a quilt about families and not include this word?
I know I've told you before how much I love family history and I feel so lucky to have ALOT of historyies from my ancestors and also Mr. Honey's ancestors.
I feel such a connection to them as I learn about who I came from.
I feel a great sense of belonging...we also try to share that experience with our children....hopefully they will carry on this tradition of connecting with family members from the past.
I truly believe this and that's why it's stitched into my quilt...(thanks again Kassidy...you're my favorite stunt double)....Mr. Honey and I both grew up in game playing families and again, that is something we still do with our kids often.
We have been playing alot of games together lately because we always get new ones under the Christmas Tree.
We have been playing a board game called "Ticket to Ride" and a card game called "BANG"...both are really fun!
Do you like to play games with your family? Do you have any favorites?
