Better Late Than Never!

Oops!  SO sorry NTT is late this week.  We went out of town for a wedding last weekend, and I feel like I've been running in circles since getting home Sunday evening.  The wedding was under the Evangeline Oak (of Longfellow's Evangeline fame), right on the banks of Bayou Teche in Louisiana,  and it was really lovely.

You know, even though I haven't lived in Louisiana in 16 years, it is still home, and there are always some experiences that bring me right back.  Right now, it is sugar cane harvest time.  After harvesting, the fields are burned, filling the air with a sweet, smoky scent that I just love.  Of course, the rehearsal dinner and reception served traditional Cajun fare, and we even stumbled across the local high school band playing jazz in the town square.  Added to that was the fact that I got to spend some quality time with my parents and grandparents, which made it a really fantastic weekend!  Since our 16th anniversary is tomorrow, it was a nice little getaway!

Last week's party was awesome!  Heather at Modern Parti Quilts linked up this fun little pillow-

Kaja at Sew Slowly showed her progress on her Big City quilt.  I love how modern it is.  It really does give the impression of a cityscape!  So. cool.

And last, but not least, Shanna from Sparrow In Flight shared this fun triangle quilt.  What great colors, and all of that negative space really shows off the amazing quilting!

Before we party, there is a little bit of business to attend to.  Since Christmas Day and New Years Day are the next two Thursdays, NTT will be taking a two week break and will return on January 8th!  I'm sure I will still post a few times between now and January 8th (I'm counting on some serious sewing time once school is out!), but we just won't have the scheduled NTT party.  I truly hope that you and your family have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
