I found one...


I had been looking for one of these at my local quilt shops and no one had them. I found this one at www.quiltinaday.com My dear hubby put it right on the van for me. I am a happy quilter!

5 Days till Christmas



Wow, Christmas is coming fast. Wasn't it just Thanksgiving? Seems to me it was.. I have been busy wrapping presents. This year I was a little more organized. I put all the presents but 1 in a certain spot in my house. Of course I forgot where I had put the one.. Had to look 3 places before I said, "oh, yes I think I remember"..yes it was there right where I put it..LOL Anyway I am ready for christmas..

Baby Quilts

Our quilt guild had a float in the christmas parade in our small town this year. Two of the guild members walked alongside the float and handed out baby quilts. Here is 2 that I made. I put flannel on the back and it made them so nice and warm. The temp. outside the night of the parade was 29 degrees F. and my oh my was it cold.......Brrrrrr...... Our float won 2nd place... Yeah!!!!!!! We were all excited.. I just joined this guild about 4 months ago. I plan to have lots of baby quilts made to pass out at next years christmas parade......
