Early Christmas - practice if you will - with the Grands

We had the local Grandkids and their grown-ups over for Christmas presents and a meatball supper. I had a great time... Hope they did, too.  Here's the pictures

 They are eating the fudge that was in their little baking pots

 These are their grown-ups - their Dad, my SIL and his fiancĂ©.

 This is the next grandgirl to marry - they say after college... I hope so. I'm making the DP Love Ring for their gift.
This one turns 13 in a few days. Already he's about 6' tall.

These are the newly weds... (Can you tell?)

This one is taller, too, and sings!

My little nod to sewing. I'm still working on the Drunkard Path variation, only now instead of hand sewing I'm using the machine. Still pinning like I would for hand sewing, but using the machine. Easier on my hands. The template is set up for hand sewing, so I can't even try to sew without pins... none of the seam allowances are a 1/4", but this way I have a line to sew on, but still have to pin.

This is one of the Christmas cacti that I have. The other isn't even thinking about buds yet. It needs a transplant. Been in that same pot more than 30 years.
Next time I'll show off my little Christmas tree... and my DP blocks, if I can find them all.
Have a wonderful week.
