RELAXING.....


Finally a new post.  I had a busy week.  I got my Swoon quilt top pieced and delivered to the quilter.  I had all the staff over for dinner on Friday night.  Everyone pitched in and we had a great time. Here we all are feeling rather stuffed! Aren't we a happy bunch.




I'm on the left in black, next to my lovely daughter.
Then last night, we had a Christmas dinner at our church.  Two dinners in a row! Good thing this year is a calorie free one.

Because Christmas is inching ever closer, I pulled out this quilt I made a few years back.  It's made of log cabin and sampler blocks.  This was fun to do.  The quilting is sort of swirly, like snow. Linda quilted this for me.






I have been enjoying the blog hop.  So fun to read all the comments.  Don't forget to enter for the give-away.  Have a wonderful relaxing Sunday.

I love youor Christmas tree! I think I might be able to figure out the pattern. Just a suggestion, if I may be so bold, I am thinking that yellow flames appliqued above the red blocks would set it off - looking like candles. Love your blog and I will be following.

One of the wonderful things about Christmas, is rediscovering all the precious memories hidden away amongst the decorations - usually the hand-made with love type :) I love this quilt.
