HOPE YOU ALL HAD A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!


Ours was very nice, but quiet.  Had quite a wind storm and a lot of Michigan is without power.  We were lucky and only lost the internet, cable and phone.  It has been 3 days so I hope things back to normal soon. 

The quilts I sent out for Christmas presents were well received.  I'm glad to hear that, and now I can show you the one I made for my brother.
It's a raider's quilt.  He was pretty excited to get it.

I had also finished another quilt that I made just to practice my free motion quilting on.  Still have a long way to go with the FMQ but it looks pretty nice.

Also had a Christmas table runner I forgot to show you. 

 and it's reversible
 So, short and sweet today.  Hope all of you are enjoying the holidays.

Christmas Projects


It's almost Christmas and I hope you are ready. I am so glad I don't have to run around for those last minute gifts!  Christmas can be a lot of work, especially if you have kids or big families.  So I wish to all of you peace and contentment for the holidays.

I wanted to show you the Christmas projects I worked on this year.  First of all I made a Christmas throw quilt to put on the couch. Sorry the photo is blurry.


Then I made a set of pillows.
  

 I think they look nice .


 I also made a wall hanging:
 A quilt I made for my son:
  And I also made one for my daughter-in-law: oops, there's a dog head in there!

And last I made a tree skirt for their tree:
 So  yes, I've been busy!  But I enjoyed working on all of them and hope the gifts will be enjoyed.

Hello again,

I certainly took a long break, the whole summer and fall actually.  I was busy gardening and taking little trips, among other things.  Then of course, there was the fall clean up.  But now I am back and anxious to show you what I've been working on.

MY FLIP FLOP QUILT
FARM QUILT- SOME SQUARES WERE FROM A PAT SLOAN DESIGN
This little quilt went to my Daughter-in law
A SUMMER WALL HANGING
A TABLE TOPPER MADE FROM CHARM SQUARES
ANOTHER LITTLE TABLE TOPPER
BRITT'S BIRTHDAY QUILT

 Well I guess that's enough of that.  I'll show you my Christmas things tomorrow.   Speaking of Christmas, I have all my shopping done, presents wrapped, boxes in the mail, etc.  How are you doing at your house?

What a strange year this has been, I live in northern Mi, and we have only has a sprinkling of snow!  Right now it is windy and very cold.

Here is a picture of our Christmas tree which has all home made ornaments on it.



Until next time my friends,
