Some Christmas projects

 I made this table runner for Carrie for Christmas. I was a quilt as you go and I did it in one afternoon!!
 I think  it took me longer to decide on the backing than to sew it.
 This is what I ended up with.
 I made this apron for my secret pal in the Belleview Birthday Club. Some day I will have to write more about the club it has been going since the 1950s I think.
One night the phone rang and it Tara calling to tell me she had worn the apron at her son's birthday party and it was a big hit. It's always nice to know when someone likes what you made. Thanks Tara, and thanks Dan for the shirt:)
 I made this bag for another friend Sue because she wore her first one out!!
 Here is our wild cat. Greg thought it should have a better shelter behind the house. I think I tipped the tub over to put corn on for the birds, anyway he cut a hole put alittle hay in it and now it's the cat house:) I told him as long as it continues to be wild he can stay!!
 Looking for corn. It's in the bucket.
 One day before Christmas Mike, Sue and I delivered beef roasts to the food pantry in Wesstington Springs. We are members of the SD Cattlemen's Aux and it is one of our projects.
 They were pretty happy and thankful for the beef.
We were so important that we got an escort out of town:) Not really just happened to get behind him, and then we wouldn't let Mike pass him so we followed him for quite awhile.....................JMF

Every time I see one of your aprons made from shirts, I think that I need to try making one. So clever.

I'm sure the food bank was extremely appreciative of receiving some SD beef. That was a great service.
