End of 2019 Quilting

December 31, 2019

These are the last projects I finished in 2019, just in time for Christmas...Well, mostly finished! 

The left over fabrics from the Vintage Holiday Stars Christmas quilt were put to use to make 3 new Christmas table toppers. 

The last two Vintage Holiday charm packs in my stash along with part of a Little Ruby charm pack were used to make another simple patchwork Christmas quilt. I only have a very little bit of scraps left over from the fat quarter bundle and charm packs I had in my stash. I love it when I can find a way to use every little last bit of a collection. I didn't have time to get the quilt top quilted before Christmas, so it has been added to my pile of projects to get finished in 2020. 

And one more to add to the 2020 pile is my Winter Suburbia quilt. I LOVE this one so much and can't wait to get it finished so I can hang it up in my living room. 

I want to thank all of you who take the time to read and comment on my blog. Your encouragement and your kindness is never taken for granted. 

Heres to a new year...

A new beginning...

Fill your year with JOY!

Happy New Year 2020!! 🥳

Christmas 2019

December 30, 2019

I did a terrible job at taking pictures of our Christmas gatherings. I was holding Bennett every chance I could get, so that's my excuse. 😉I did make a point to get a picture of Russ' mom with Bennett...

and pictures of Haley with the Kansas City Chiefs onesies we bought for Bennett. 

Russ continued to "penable" my love of fountain pens and ink, by adding a Visconti Breeze to my pen collection, and Diamine Blue Pearl and Iroshizuku Tsutsuji to my ink collection. 

I bought Russ a gazebo tent room for us to use while camping.  This will come in handy when we want a place to get away from the bugs.

The day after Christmas, we ran away for a couple of days to Des Moines. We were to go to Texas for a week with the camper, but Russ' job didn't shut down like they usually do for the holidays. We decided to save the vacation days to go to Texas in February or March when it will be a bit warmer. We had a very nice time in Des Moines shopping and just being together. We took advantage of some good after Christmas sales and dreamed about other things, like a Jeep Gladiator...It most likely will never happen, but it was fun to dream. 😊

I hope you all had a sweet and tender Christmas with your family and loved ones...

Vintage Holiday ~ 2019 Christmas Quilt

Getting ready for Christmas!! 

I really love this fabric...

All ready to snuggle under while we wait for Chrismas Day!

Sleep Tight, Little One

I promise, this will not turn into a blog about my grandchildren, however, I had to show you Bennett's hair!! I am hoping it stays red! 

This panel is an older line by Cotton and Steel called Sleep Tight. I have been waiting for a boy to quilt it up!

The backing print is hard to see, but it is white with the alphabet letters scattered all over. I added orphan flying geese to give it some more interest. 
This will be Bennett's quilt when he comes to visit Grandma's house. 🥰

One more picture of the wee babe and now I am done! 
For now. 😉

A new baby to love...

We received an early Christmas present yesterday!! 

Bennett Russell, born 3 weeks early, weighing in at 5 1/2 pounds.

I had the privilege to be there when he entered the world and to hear his first cry. 

We are smitten...
