Hi friends!
My birthday present from Chris and Amy!
Tommy jumped straight up out of the bed when these started hitting the porch!
My daughter got me the sweetest sweater shawl.
She's like me and can't stand a heavy coat.
My birthday was Thanksgiving day! So was my step-daughters , Kim.
We are birthday heavy in Nov.
Abby's was the 18th.
Kim's was the same day as mine.

Next Quilt

Hi friends!
Looking for some thing different to make my daughter a Christmas quilt.
This block right now is 14 by 13 1/2 . I would even them out before I add them.  I didn't want to do another falling charm and I have looked and looked and nothing popped out and said "make me".
Colette sent me a Christmas charm pack last year and I bought another one for just this purpose.
Just got the red this morning in the mail to go with it.
I am going to look at it this weekend and see if that's the way I want to go with it.
Do you ever do that?
Have a good one

Hi friends!
In it's new home!
My camera chooses bad times to not want to focus!
Of course it's old like me!
Very bad picture but this is my dear friend Vivian.
I think she liked it!
Taken with my other camera but it doesn't like to do close up!
Maybe Santa will bring me a new one.................

Nearly finished

Hi friends!
Nearly finished.
I am nearly through quilting, I did enough so I could bind and put on the label but want to do a little straight line between the rows
I did the white and around the border but a straight line on the red between the rows will finish it off.
It's lap sized for a dear friend with  health problems.
She needs hugs right now so maybe this will help.

Quick Quilt

Hi friends!
That little bit of color helped it so much.
It's lap  quilt size now but i need a little more.

Got that sewed together!
I had pulled the floral fabric but just didn't like it with the rest.
Since it was big enough i stopped with the red.
I'll save that fabric for another quilt.
Ready to sandwich!
Talk to you Friday

Comfort Quilt

Hi friends!
I heard about a friend of mine that needed a comfort quilt so i started one Sat.
The blocks I made were kind of pale so i used some color between each one.
Using some Layer cakes squares that Julie Rose sent me when Kim was in the hospital that are just beautiful.
Laid out on the bed they just disappeared.
I just wanted a small line of color.
Going to make her a lap quilt because they are fast.
Got to get busy!

Working on Christmas

Hi friends!
This is one of the quilt tops that my mother-in-law made many years ago, a sneak peek because i want be putting much about them on my blog, they will be Christmas presents for my four girls  that Hubby  gave me.
As Abby said " you know it will be something guilty" Hubby said "you are telling them what we are giving them for Christmas but if i blog about it they could see . So only small sneak peeks , when i am finished , Hubby will decide who gets what.
I did get something finished!
Not the best i have ever done but it will work for my short hands.
