Our Christmas

We had such a wonderful Christmas with our boys and some extended family. Three days of celebrating and eating. I need to get back to a reasonable diet, there have been too many goodies here!

Son Justin and wife Lizzie
Grandson Tad and his daddy, Andrew.
Son Eric reading one of many books Tad received.
Christmas was so fun with a little one around. Even though he had a cold, Tad was a trooper with all the celebrating and excitement. And yes, he loved playing with the boxes, especially the bows!

Now that the presents have been opened, I can show the quilt I made for Lizzie and Justin. Really a late wedding gift. 

This pattern was from a BHG magazine and is really a departure from my usual work. Different kind of pattern and colors for me. But I needed to make something just right for them and I think I did OK.

So now I'm thinking ahead to a new year. Feeling the need to organize, plant seeds for the garden, and start some fun new projects. What are you planning for the new year?

Such a beautiful family, especially the little one. I miss having a little one around and seeing the world through their eyes. That is a gorgeous quilt, Cindy. I do love the colors and your son and his wife will cherish it, I'm sure!

I am thinking of the New Year and the gardens and maybe some sewing. New Year's Blessings to you and your family! xx

What a lovely quilt, Cindy! I'm sure the happy couple are pleased with it!

It appears you had a wonderful Christmas with your family.

Yes, it's time to begin to think about plans for the coming year. At the top of my list is always - organizing! Let's see if some of that will actually be accomplished.:-)

Happy New Year, Cindy!
