Wow I get the lazy blogger award!! In my defense it has been a busy couple of weeks with traveling for the holidays and a visit from our Kansas friends. I enjoyed every minute of it.
I hope you all had lovely holidays too!
Here is Patience on Christmas morning with her favorite Christmas gift. Yes ladies and gentleman she is now a ROCK STAR!!
Minate’s favorite gift so far seems to be her tag reading system. I am having fun with that one too!! =)
A day after Christmas we traveled to my brother’s house to celebrate Christmas with my side of the fam. Here is a shot of the ugly sweater competition. I did not win this year but I am coming back strong next year!! My Dad took home the trophy for the sweater he gifted to the BG (that’s the brooding genius hubbie in the brown sweater with flowers on it!!! hahahahaha)
Then for the New Year our friends Will and Tammy, the BG and I went out for a nice dinner then had some spirits at a couple different places and then watched the ball drop at my sister-in-laws house. Here they are leaving on Saturday morning:
Now that all the holiday festivities are over I guess I will rest a few days then get back to sewing. I need to put the binding on this valentines quilt that shamefully I hung up after I took the Christmas quilt down that was hanging in that spot (hey I had friends coming I didn’t have time to bind hehehe):
It is from this book and I am pretty sure we have it on the quilt n go website if you are looking for a valentine project:
And I need to quilt this little Valentine quilt I made last year but never got quilted. It is from a BH&G Patchwork Quilting pattern. It was so much fun to do, it has applique bits, wool applique bits, tiny yo-yo’s, and ric rac and even a Minkie heart!!
I don’t have very many valentine-y decorations, I will have to see what I can make in the next week or two. Here are a couple cute little pillows I bought last year:
