Work from Moonlight Threads

I have really been enjoying my job at the embroidery shop. We get to make lots of cute spirit wear items so I thought I would share a few.

Raffle Quilt for Allen Quilters Guild

Seams Like Sisters got together and made the raffle quilt this year. It was a really quick process since we were on such short notice. We had the pattern picked out, the fabric bought and the quilt together in a week. It was fast and furious but so much fun.

Christmas Dinner

The kids love a low key Christmas dinner and it is beginning to be a tradition of hamburgers and the usual side dishes. This year I set a fancy table even though our food was not so special. The pot was painted by Kelleigh.

Favorite Things

Christmas is put away but I had to take some pics of my favorite things. The stockings were stitched by my mother-in-law and I put them together. I have several ornaments that people have made and others that I just enjoy. I don't mind putting away the tree but I like to leave up some of the other decorations.

Cowboy Stadium

Football season is over and my daughter has turned in her uniforms but not without playing at the new Cowboy Stadium. It was amazing and hard to imagine how much money was spent building this place for pure entertainment. We were able to be there without paying the high prices of going to a Dallas Cowboy game. The first picture is the Allen Eagle Drumline and the last one is under Cowboy Stadium.
