Mid December

Here it is mid December already. I've been in a bit of a funk. We have lost 2 dear friends since October 30th, & the dark days has just made it a little harder.

We had about 20 inches of snowfall yesterday. I do have my house all decorated for Christmas. I've been going through the motions, hoping that my actions will help to make me feel more in the mood. 

This is a quilt I finished the quilting on for my friend Jackie Carley. She left me a lot of spaces to quilt in. It really was a fun one to quilt.

Below is another of Shirley Fraser's beautifully pieced quilts, that is so big I can't get a full photo of the top. I have to do some doodles & see what I come up with for designs for it. The colors alone should make me feel brighter & happier!

The last quilt below belongs to my friend Carol who is sick right now. I've been working on this design for it, but will do Shirley's quilt first so I can concentrate on getting Carol's done as perfectly as possible, without feeling like I need to rush. They will both take some time.

Here's hoping you all have a very Merry Holiday season!
