new years day fun

Wow what a way to see in the first day of the year.........it started on a high......
15hours of zoom sewing with my blog friends......
Mostly all still blogging which is wonderful........
I worked on my Miss Elizabeth quilt who has not seen the light of day for a long time........was great to get the light strips on each side of this piece..........They are over 1 metre in length..........I finished this up and had to make a mad dash to the Chookshed for more sewing and found Lucy..........well LucyII to be exact.......forgot to take a pic but I found 4 blocks cut prepared so I choose one of those. 
I think this time we had 16 at the most on at one time.........some pop in for a long time......some for a shorter time and some in and out a few times.......it's what ever works...........27 of us in total...........be brave and join us if you like next time......it's not exclusive........but it is for sewing/crafty bloggers..........
I have a list of everyone with blog links on the sidebar.......only the bottom 5 weren't in yesterday.....
I was starting to fade about 8pm and Janet @ Rogue Quilter USA who had left us many hours earlier popped back in.......I said omg what are you doing here what time it is.........she said it was 2am and she was finally going to bed but thought would those girls really still be online??????
Well hello we were........well maybe 4-5 of us......it was very funny.......she could not believe we were still here sewing and chatting....Sylvia in Germany was even back with us as she had popped away for a few hours sleep............anyway we all chatted for another couple hours.........I think I stopped sewing just after 9pm. I know when I am away next I will be looking for a better sewing light.......it's fine sewing in the Chookshed with the fluro lights but my sewing lights just don't cut it inside anymore......bit too warm light.......need a cooler light that will be much more brighter.......
Anyway our group had a real international mix especially earlier in the day......but with so many different time zones discussions on what meal time it is for others.......what covid restrictions are in place.......what traditions people have for Christmas..........what changed this year........what projects people were working on and a million other topics I am sure were discussed........
THANKYOU girls for making my start to the year so much fun........

OK must go mow the jungle that I call lawn.......really with the storms around it needed to be mown a day or 2 ago...........
Happy New Year...........
Stay safe.......
Catch you later.......

    so sorry I missed the zoom party (again) we had some fine weather so were outside painting while we could (storms and heavy rains predicted for Sunday, which we are now enjoying!)...
    sounds like you all had a wonderful time! I look forward to the next one.
    Your Lucy II block is very pretty, love those colours. And glad you got some nice rain...
