We had some wonderful holidays with family and friends. I so enjoy the holidays but I hate to say this but I'm also glad they are over. I love the holidays but it's always good to get back to normal. I still haven't put up all the decorations and I still have my holiday quilts out. I guess I'll put those away this Saturday. I really enjoy seeing them and even looking at the bare tree after all the gifts are gone! I come home and turn the lights on my tree on just to enjoy it!
I have finished one quilt this week. I don't know if it counts as a finish for last year or this year as I was putting the final stitches in the binding on New Years Eve while watching the Count down for the new year. It was fun to be sewing and finishing this quilt up then. My husband was asleep on the couch when the new year came in. I had to wake him up to kiss him! Sounds like we lead an exciting life, huh?? Anyway, I did finish this quilt and I am really pleased with it. It is a love quilt for my friend going through chemo. My tatting group got together and made the blocks and I quilted it and finished it. I have enough backing fabric to make a pillowcase to go with it so I'm going to do that and put the quilt in it to give to her. We'll be giving it to her next Tuesday and I hope she likes it. I have to attach two more blocks to the back of the quilt. They were received late and didn't get put into the top so they will be appliqued to the back of the quilt when I get them Saturday. Another friend of mine has them and I have to pick them up from her....We'll be meeting up at the local quilt store Saturday for me to get the blocks and see what's going on at the LQS too!
Here's the quilt so you can see how cute it turned out... Well, I've tried and tried to upload it and blogger doesn't want to play right now. I'll show you later!
I've got to go for now and get busy, the sewing machine is calling me. Til next time, happy quilting!
