What I have been up to!

Christmas and New Year's are over and I am ready to sew!!  I got all my decorations put away yesterday and I cleaned my sewing room today.  I am in several bees, so I need to get busy making blocks.  I can't wait!  It will be so fun.

Here are just a few things that I made before Christmas for gifts.  Unfortunately, I didn't take pictures of everything I made.

Gifts for my granddaughter---Parker!

I had so much fun sewing for my granddaughter this year.  I hope to sew for her for years and years to come.

My daughter, Carisa and granddaughter, Parker!

Over the New Year, my husband and I were in Colorado with all our kids.  We had such a wonderful time all being together and having a late Christmas celebration.

The whole gang.

My husband told me recently that this is his very least favorite time of year.  (He is a golfer!)  It is cold and dreary out and he misses his golf.  I can just imagine what it is like.  I would hate it if I couldn't quilt for 3-4 months!  My reply to him is that this is one of my favorite times of year for the same reason!  (Don't get me wrong....I love, love, love SUMMER!!)  I love it that the weather is now cold and dreary!  All I want to do is stay in, hibernate in my sewing room or snuggle under a warm quilt with one of my hand projects.  I'd better get busy....I have a lot of projects to start and finish before summer comes!  Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!


  1. I love your photo of the whole gang - it is so lovely when family get to gether. Sadly mine can't for various reasons . . .
