I have always heard that what you do on the first day of a new year, you will do all year long. So here is what I did today, and can only hope and pray the good times continue throughout the year. I hope all of your New Year's Days were filled with family and friends.
My whole family gathered at my house today for our traditional family dinner of pork roast, sauerkraut, lima beans, black-eyed peas, mashed potatoes and various desserts. So today I cooked for my family. I just had to make the port roasts and get the sauerkraut - everybody brought the remainder of the food items. It was such a fun day, and my heart was full as was my house too. There was a total of 23 of us and I had table set up on the living room, kitchen and dining room.
But before they arrived and while the pork roasts cooked, I got a little English Paper Piecing in on my Jack's Chain quilt.
It is soooooooo cold today, I had the gas logs going in the living room and so enjoy stitching and watching the fire.
The remainder of the pictures are family groupings.
