2 More Quilts Finished

My Christmas Quilt - Ribbon Candy - made with Holly Jolly fabrics is DONE! One more from my list crossed off..The lime green in this quilt pops. My daughter Keri thought it was stunning. She also thought the size and pattern was great for a baby quilt also.


My Flannel Flower Quilt I had designed myself last year is DONE!!! I wanted a fun, funky flower children's quilt..to do..and had fun doing it! It ended up being a king size..hehehe..my husband and I were laughing last night. We do not know a little girl who sleeps in a king size bed! Oh well...he said I got carried away as usual! Another from my list is crossed off!!! Phew....the stash is going down..down..down.. luckily I must say my grandaughter Hannah came over and loved the quilt so I took a picture of her with it. She will be four January 17th 2008! See how big this quilt is? The picture is not that good..it is really pretty up close..I am not good at taking pictures. I wanted you to get the effect of the size. It is really snowing quite a bit now so if we loose power we can cuddle in the flannel quilt, thats all.

I am thrilled Hannah is here! She has not been here in months! With my health not so good over the past few months this is super special for me..I am thanking God for this special time..I love to spend time with my family or friends, any time I can get! Thank you Keri (our daughter) for bringing her here. We have four grandchildren! We love them all..and don't get to see them all very often. Sewing is my savior. Unfortunately we do not live close to them.

Today, here in NH we are expecting 6-10 inches of snow, yes snow. It could be more. I hope we do not loose power. The forcaster says we can get ice too. Then on Saturday December 15th we can get an additional 1-2 feet of snow! That storm will end on Sunday the 16th. That is the day our youngest will turn 25! I guess we cannot celebrate if I cannot get out to see him or he cannot get here! We will have to pick another day! He just moved out of the house five months ago..sigh..it is tough when the last one goes..maybe that is why I sew sew much!

Looks like you have just the right size quilt to cuddle under with the grandkids when they make a visit . . . not too big at all - just right *s*
