Since all of my intentions of posting a Christmas greeting never materialized, Happy Boxing Day everyone! (To all who celebrate that holiday, and to the rest of us who should, because another holiday the day after Christmas sounds like the best idea ever.)
I hope it was a sweet weekend with those you love, or at least some really good food. The highlights for me included time with my parents and all of my siblings in town, receiving more of these cute little strawberry ornaments from my cute Hmong neighbor
and giving my brother and grandma the quilts I made for them. I’m kicking myself I didn’t get a better picture with my Grandma – she was so over the moon with the quilt, it really was a sweet moment. I gave her one years ago and she’s loved it so much, so I figured it was about time we it again. Because when you’re almost 93, you deserve another quilt! (The pattern is Modern Buzzsaw from my book, Fabulously Fast Quilts.)
Pictures of the quilt for my brother are yet to come. Because all he received was a quilt top (doh). It’s off to the quilters to get finished this week. Good thing he’s an understanding brother. 😉
Thank you for all of you kind words of support and encouragement in this space over the past year(s). They mean more than you know and I feel lucky/blessed to interact with so many other good-hearted folks – even if it only through cyberspace. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Seasons Greetings, Happy Kwanza, Feliz Navidad and whatever greeting you most prefer! Looking forward to 2017!
Now that Christmas is done do you:
A) Want to lock yourself in a room alone with your sewing machine?
B) Want to learn something fun and new?
C) Want to get something for yourself that you actually wanted?
D) All of the Above?
