a christmas story..

I know Christmas has passed but I just found this blogspot. It has a great christmas story on it. Check it out here  scroll down to Dec. 23,2010  I don't think you will be dissapointed.
If you check it out let me know what you think.
Have a great day.

Getting ready............

Christmas is over and 2010 is nearing the end..  I hope everyone had a great Christmas. My family and I had a great Christmas. I have much to be thankful for. Everyone is healthy, had and still have lots of good food, warm places to lay our head and call home, 3 wonderful grandchildren, 2 wonderful sons, my mom moved back from Michigan(she was there for about 22 years) good to have you home mom, and I have a wonderful Hubby that loves every quilt I make.  Now  I am blessed.   Just so you know we are not a PERFECT family we do have our ups and downs too like everyone else..   I like the up side though.. : ) 
Hubby loved his quilt. So has everyone that seen it. He even took it to his workplace and showed them. One person wanted to know if it was for sale.
I have photo's now if I can just get them downloaded to the computer.
We have a compute tech coming today or tomorrow to clean up our desktop and set up my new laptop. I can hardly wait to get it online.  I have EQ6 and am anxious to learn to work it. I have had it awhile but I don't enjoy sitting at this desk trying to learn it.  Computers are not in my comfort zone. I have a hard time learning them. My 6 yr. old grandson is better than myself. Now that is terrible isn't it. : ) 
I have several projects started and I have been working on trying to complete them so I can start new projects.  I have lots of  fabric in my stash that needs to be used up so I can make room for more shopping trips for quilt fab. After all that is what's fun about for more fab and starting new projects..
Well I have rambled on long enough.  Hope everyone is having a great day. Stop back in and check out my quilt pictures and see what I have been into.

Baby it's cold outside...brrrrr........

Yes it is a cold 18 degrees here in ky today. We have about 5 or 6 inches of snow on the ground.  I hope we have  a white Christmas...
If you like to look at pretty quilt pics like I do, stop over and visit Kathleen at  I stumbled upon her blog and I really enjoyed looking at her pretty quilts.
I have finally quilted my hubby's quilt that I made him.  I have been sneaking and piecing the back, quilting and binding it. I worked until 2:15am.  last night trying to finish up the binding. It is completed!!!!Yipeee  He don't know so I am gonna put it under the tree. He will love it. He is  very appreciative of all the quilts I make.
Gotta run, maybe a pic of the quilt later.

I"m back already.....

I made these delicious rolls to take to a Christmas dinner at our quilt guild. They were delicious. Aren't they pretty? Can't you just smell them?? MMMMMmmmm..

Here is a gift my friend brought to me at  the evening quilt guild. We have a day and a night quilt guild. The night one is for the ones that work during the day.

This is what I have been doing in the evenings...Knitting this scarf for my snowman tree topper. Isn't he just adorable?? :) 

My tree is up, mantle is decorated, a few outside lights are up.......I must get some gifts bought. Time is flying by and Christmas will soon be here and there will be little grandchildren wanting some gifts from mam maw and papaw. 

I hope your Dec. is going smoothly and you are getting all your errands or chores done so you will be able to enjoy the holidays. Happy shopping!!

Updated blog

I have spent forever trying to give my blog a Christmas look. This is the best I can do, although I think it is pretty.  Now I must get with it and add some pics.  So I am off to get  my camera and take a pic or two and let you know what I have been up to.   I will be back soon.
