Merry Christmas !

Mosley is posing here with the Debbie Mumm tree skirt turned table covering that I'm shocked to say I finally completed 2 years ago...how did 2 years go by!  Oh well...It's just in time now so that I can share a holiday photo and wish you all a very Merry, Happy Christmas!                                       

Life is getting back to something more normal slowly and surely around here after everything seemed to be "breaking" for awhile.  My mom fell and broke her wrist, my cat was having some troubles, both our computers broke down and the list went on.  I'm happy to say that my mom is healing well without having to have surgery, the cat got a new diet and we are determinedly loading software and learning Windows 7 :-)  
Not alot of sewing has been going with all the extra needs, but I have been able to get one quilt completed and several 'almosts' that I started in the fall. As I get these quilted I'll get back to taking some pictures and posting them.  I can start with this one that is actually the picture I'll show for four of them!

This is a quilt by Karen Montgomery called Jungle Fever. I purchased it along with 3 layer cakes of Tonga batiks when I was at the PIQF in October.  I needed a few quick gifts for weddings, etc for people who wanted neutral or earth tone quilts for their living rooms. This was not the most interesting past time but it sure has been fast as I was able to make four quilts out of the 3 layer cakes plus yardage for the borders,etc. So far the first recipient has been pleased. Yeah!
I couldn't get any volunteers to quilt model for me but here is Elinor. I had added a quilt sleeve on the quilt I gave my sister in the summer, put it on the piano till I could give it to her and Elinor jumped up there immediately to bless it for me.

Hope you are enjoying the fruits of your efforts this year and are blessed with loved ones around you to share them. God's peace in my heart is the sweetest gift I have this year and I treasure it each moment. I pray that you are blessed with His presence during this season and all year long. Joy and Peace to your world!

I've hardly had computer time and so glad I didn't miss this post. This book will come in handy for when I'm down with surgery the 16th...or some drugs! LOL
Thanks for the chance Loris!!
