Downton Abbey Premier Party

I know I am a week late on posting these pictures, but with my new job and preparing a talk to give in church, I haven't had much time to figure out how to get pictures from my phone to my blog.  Anyway, my sweet daughter invited me to this party last Sunday night.

As you can see, they had a full fare of British treats. My daughter, Heidi made this beautiful Trifle.(Don't know if that's how you spell it) We also had scones with clotted cream and berry preserves.

Our Hostess, Lori brought out her fabulous tea cup collected that she has gathered from different European cities. The sherbet and pastel colors were dreamy! She also offered a lovely selection of herbal teas. We watched the show as we nibbled, giving advise to Lady Mary on her choice of beaus! It was really fun. Now it's time to go watch tonight's episode! Thanks for stopping by.         Love, Derrith

My Priceless Possession

Hello friends. I have been absent from my blog for over two months and I appreciate anyone who may still be visiting. I have gone through a challenging move, enjoyed the holidays with family in spite of unpacked boxes here and there and now I am ready to face the new year.  I wanted to share with you this "priceless possession". It was made for me by Anita for my quilt group Christmas gift exchange. I love it for itself, but each of my beloved "Sisters'n'Stitches" hand signed it as a going away gift.

I cherish it because I love these women and appreciate the acceptance and love they gave to me and because I miss them SO MUCH!  I have wanted to get back to posting on my blog but felt rusty and wasn't sure if I should. Then I received a note from my dear friend Heather who I have known since we were in 5th grade when we played "Mouseketeers" together. She is a brilliant artist and Art Quilter and she encouraged me to blog again with very kind words about how positive she thought my posts were and how much she enjoyed them. So, thank you Heather for motivating me to get going again. I hope that in a few days I will have my new sewing room cleaned up enough for pictures. Until then, thank you to my patient friends and followers.      Love,  Derrith
