Caught Up, For Now

I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas Day and continue to enjoy the Christmas season.  I was at my sister's lovely home and enjoyed my Polish heritage by eating pierogi which my brother made, golabki which my sister made, kielbasa, Polish ham,  babka, rye bread, horseradish and sharing of the oplatki before hand.  It was all delicious, and her granddaughters are so much fun.  Thanks, Ging.

Growing up we had the Polish Vigilia at my mother's mother's home (my Polish grandmother) and on Christmas Day went to my father's mother's home (my French Canadian grandmother).  Gorton (not the fish brand, but a pork pate) is still one of my favorite foods, although it's difficult to find now.  I'm a vegetarian the rest of the year but not at Christmas.  Shame on me.

Since then I have spent lots of time sewing to catch up on the Stash Busters QAL and the Ben Franklin QAL.  I was  seven blocks behind on the first and only one block behind on the second. 

And the Ben Franklin block called Strength in Union.

Lots of unstitching on the Stash Busters, which I think are out to bust me.  
Tomorrow Linda will give us another Stash Buster block and I hope to get it done.  

Enjoy you weekend.

God Bless You.

I had a wonderful Christmas, but am now very far behind on the Stash Buster blocks. You're look wonderful.

Your blocks are looking great. Some of them look as though they're very tricky to do?

Glad you had a great Christmas. I eat fish and chicken/turkey but I never thought to break that just for Christmas. I miss salamis and yes, kielbasa too. Your blocks are all lovely. I'm heading into the deep dark sewing room today...
