Getting Ready For Christmas

Wendyq 010

I’ve been working on 2 different customer quilts this weekend. Both are going to be Christmas gifts. This little one belongs to Wendy. She is new to quilting. She likes the McKenna Ryan patterns, & wanted to give this to her daughter.

I’ve been working on it between working on Kate’s big quilt. When my knees start to ache from standing, I sat down & worked on the small quilt. It’s complete, now I just have to finish Kate’s.

I’ve also been trying to decorate the house too. I put the little ceramic tree in the kitchen while I was talking on the phone to my youngest son.

We had quite a bit of snow over the last couple of days. Warren went out to snow-blow the driveway today, but the old snow-blower died. He says he will try to find a new one tomorrow.

Kate’s quilt has been pure pleasure to work on during the gray winter days. It is so sunny & warm. The Minkie on the back is behaving just fine. I am also loving the green batting. It’s very nice.

Broc has wanted a little attention too. He gets so goofy at times. Yesterday Warren went shopping, & picked up Broc’s free gift from the Pet Zoo. When Warren came in & sat down the bags, Broc had gotten his & tried to take off with it. He knew it was his present!

Quilts are a delight, as always. I have been whining because we have had some cold (39 degree) mornings--but at least it goes up to 65 during the day! The cat picture sums up all that is perfect about cats-love it!

Lovely photo of you and the cat Deb.
The quilt pieces are terrific- I am sure they will be a great hit with the recipients.
Happy quilting.

Hello Deb. The quilt are really neat. My kind of quilts. I see you are surrounded by Mother Nature bounty of snow. None here yet in Michigan if you can believe. I think Nov. was the warmest on record. Love it. Hugs Judy
