I live in Northern California with my family, and I teach quilting classes and work in a quilt shop so I practically dream in quilt colors! This year, I made a promise to myself that I would get ready for Christmas all year long. I have been working on one holiday project every month and you can find all of my previous Christmas projects here. I coordinated this blog hop so that I could share even more holiday inspiration with you from some of my favorite blogging friends. I have been so excited about sharing my project with you for this Blog Hop! I made a cute and simple Christmas table runner using easy patchwork, a little applique and some jumbo ric rak to add some punch. Another little detail that makes this table runner so fun is the thread that I used for the quilting. This is a metallic thread called Sliver by Sulky and it adds a touch of sparkle to your stitches. I did all of my straight line quilting with it and I outlined my applique shapes with it also. The free motion quilting was done with white cotton thread.

I had not watched the trailer for this season and it looks fantastic. I really thought Brett Michaels was on the show and it was Shannon! I am all in for this season! Shannon We start with a significantly large Shannon playing outside with her daughters and their new dog, Archie.
Screaming bad dog at a dog running away is not how to address this situation. Shannon is literally blaming her weight gain on Vicki announcing that David was arrested for domestic violence during a scene last season. David on the other hand seems to have lost weight. Shannon is already crying in her talking heads. It seems despite the vow renewal there is trouble in paradise again.
I do feel for her weight gain though. Vicki Coto Insurance is expanding to an even larger office that Vicki is designing.

Posted on July 23rd, at 4: Alexis who is basically friendless this season and spending most of her time with her husband Jim, or going alone to acting auditions calls Gretchen and invites her to lunch to try and repair their friendship. It’s the most awkward sit down between two former close friends and Gretchen is cold as ice throughout the entire meeting. She feels that Alexis should have called when Slade Smiley’s son was going through a life threatening health scare in the hospital and Alexis defends herself saying, “I tweeted about it” and that she prayed night and day.
Gretchen Rossi’s Bikini Gretchen says that Alexis only put her well wishes on twitter to make herself look good otherwise she could have picked up the phone and called them directly.

Vicki Gunvalson, pictured in September, says she’s continuing to date businessman Brooks Ayers despite daughter’s fears When it launched over seven years ago, the TV series The Real Housewives of Orange County proved such a hit with viewers that it went on to spawn a seemingly endless array of clones. A complicated miscellany of catfights, hair extensions, marital discord, bling and group hugging, the shows make for baffling yet compulsive viewing — none more so than the original series which is currently filming its ninth season.
Vicki Gunvalson, the doyenne of the OC franchise, has the distinction of being the longest-serving member of the series and is the only housewife to last all nine seasons. A cast reunion which aired earlier this year not only managed to throw up tears from Housewife Gretchen Rossi and tantrums between Housewives Heather Dubrow and Lydia McLaughlin , but also accusations of a threesome directed at Vicki, who promptly denied everything.
With tensions running high, little wonder then that some of the Housewives have reportedly been axed since the last series, namely the afore-mentioned Gretchen as well as Alexis Bellino, who appeared on the show for four seasons.
