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.

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:
So yes, I've been busy! But I enjoyed working on all of them and hope the gifts will be enjoyed.

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,
