Saying Goodbye...to a quilt!

I am sure my fellow quilters/crafters would agree but giving a quilt away is both exciting/painful. I finished the queen size circle quilt I had been comissioned to make and handed it over today. I was excited to finish it and be done with it but will miss it. weird I know!! I am excited to get on to my next project which much to the delight of my family is a BYU quilt I am being commissioned to make. Stay tune...it is another queen and will have LOTS of applique. On another note, I have a really great friend, Desirae who had another cancer scare this week which turned out to be negative. She is a Breast Cancer survivor and a true example of courage. love ya Des!

I'M BACK!!


So I have been MIA for several months but decided i am ready to come back.  This is my latest creation and as usual, it is a commissioned piece. I was proud of my self that with 224 circles, only 1 (and it was on the edge) did I put next to the same color. It is getting ready to go to the quilters tomorrow.

CHRISTMAS 2012 QUILT

Traditions

It is hard to believe another Thanksgiving/ Gingerbread house building party has come and gone.  We had a great Thanksgiving this year with 26 people.  It is always good to get together with the family.

We hae a tradition of doing gingerbread houses the friday and saturday after Thanksgiving and everyone comes over.  Dana usually takes off the week and helps my mother make the houses which consisted of 30 houses this year.  A lot of work but so fun!!

Longing to be out east..

I dont know why but this time of year has me longing to be in New England.  Maybe it is the leaves changing but those little towns with a church steeple sticking out and just a few houses in the country are calling my name.  I have had the opportunity on a few occassions to go to New York at this time of year and visit my best friend that used to live there.  We went to a little town and picked apples.  soooo much fun!!
At Christmas time i want to climb into a Currier and Ives picture.  Wouldnt that be fun?!!!
