Christmas 2012

Well Christmas is almost here.  Our funds have been tight this year.  So thinking about this, I knew I had some fat quarter kits.  I decided to make a table topper for each of the ladies in my family. I have five out of eight completed with three that need quilting and binding.  I am sure I can have the other three done in the next  four days.  I have had two of my little grandsons the last few days — David(4 years old) and Zachary (18 months old) so I got behind, especially today. But what a joy to have them with me!

Because of my  arthritic knees, I shouldn’t sit for several hours at a time; and because I need to clean my house as well, today I will quilt for a couple of hours and then clean for an hour or so.  I will have to make a list so that I get the most important things done in my house.  It won’t be all done, but the important things will be done.  It is just after midnight here in Alberta, Canada and I am trying to decide if I should go to bed or quilt a little longer.

Wendy Sheppard has become one of my favourite people.  And I can hardly wait to start my machine quilting course with her after Christmas.  My husband paid for my online course with her (for my Christmas present) and it looks very exciting.  Merry Christmas to all. ( I saw a Christmas card today and I liked the verse — this isn’t the exact quote, but this is what I felt the meaning was:  May the happiness you receive at Christmas time carry you into the new year).  And this is what I wish for Wendy and all my new friends in quilting.
