Diversity in beer

I got this far in my Christmas present for David and I have to admit to being tickled by the word within a word. What celebrating divers has to do with beer, I don't know but it gave me a laugh.

This of course it what it is supposed to say. There are numerous beer filled containers to be added and the WDW thread really does make it look like beer in the glasses.
This will make a companion piece to the other Ink Circles pattern featuring 99 bottles of beer, that I made for him a couple  of years ago.

New finish, new start

So here is my latest finish. I am afraid that my rotation went out the window last week while I concentrated on finishing Paul's stocking.
Then of course today I started something new...just 1 new start Beth... And it too is a Christmas present. I will post a picture once I have more than a few stitches in it. So far it doesn't look like much.
Today is such a cold miserable rainy day though, I likely will move along on it.
Whether I will get back into rotation mode remains to be seen.

Kim and her husband came by on Thursday to pick up our quilt squares. I was kind of sad to see the go but it will be wonderful to see them again made up into quilts for this worthy cause.

How did I miss posting these???

These  two blocks were stitched by Beth and her daughter Heather for the Mountie quilt project...I somehow missed  posting them but here they are now...aren't they stunning?
I hope I did not neglect to show anyone else's work.

Mountie quilt project

What am I ever going to blog about when we stop collecting these squares???
Well that is a problem for another day...Here is the latest batch stitched with love by generous needle workers....
From Teresa K from Brampton
From Teresa's friend Britta, who felt she had to do something for the project
From Darlene in Markham
A second square from Anita in Brighton
Fran, one of our Friday stitchers
Mary is also a Friday Stitcher
The two squares above came from members of the Quinte Needle Arts Guild
Tricia from the Cataraqui Needle Arts Guild Sent the sweet old fashioned lady and 8 quilted squares like the one above.

Everyone has been so generous with her time and talent for this very worthy cause. I understand from Sharon that Kim will be calling in to pick up the squares for her husband to take out west within the next few days. As she receives progress reports she promises to send them along so I can post them and we can all pick out our squares in the finished quilts.

Thank You all so very much
