Coming along...


I got the sashing and borders finished yesterday, so am excited about that. I don't really have a good place to take pictures...I have this hanging in a doorway, but the window in the other room lets in so much light, I don't think the colors are quite right.  Plus my table gets in the way...though you can see I had a little helper while taking them!


I also finished a baby quilt yesterday, might start quilting it today. I made 2 recently, just don't have good pix of them yet.
My daughters are coming over tonight for Christmas. We usually go to my hometown and spend Christmas day with my parents and other family, but it looks like we won't make it this year. It is only about an hour away, but they are predicting 10 - 12" of snow for us, with blizzard conditions tomorrow. I have plans to go up on Sunday for my mom's annual coffee for my aunts and cousins so hopefully the weather will clear off by then. I am going to stay over and sew with them on Monday. Should be a fun time

Gorgeous quilt with such a lovely variety of blocks.

Sounds like a fun Monday to come, sewing with the relatives.
We're not sure what weather we'll get here--sleet and freezing rain so far. But snow is forecast. The predictions keep changing.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, Jean. Stay warm -- stay safe.

You have been so quick with this and it looks lovely. Hope you have a happy and peaceful Christmas and don't get too snowed in.
