Holiday fun!

 My sister has been here visiting from Canada the past week, so while she was at my house she worked on her quilt she started last Christmas while she was home. Here is her first complete block!
 I have wanted to redo my mouse pad for ages, so did that the other day using some wonderunder and fabric.
Doesn't it look great?

Friends at last...

 Conrad is growing like a weed, though he still looks tiny next to Smokey. He is15 weeks old now. They are friends most of the time. He likes to play and runs up to her ready to wrestle. Sometimes she is in the mood and sometimes she isn't. She doesn't always want him by her, but tonight she curled up in the chair with him.
His fur isn't really black now, it is more of a dark charcoal. He's so dark that it is hard to get a good pic of him. I'm really glad that I got him!

Quilting day in Earling, birthday party and baby shower!

 I went to my hometown last weekend for my mom's birthday, so we decided to have a sewing day too. My mom and sister had sewn their squares together for Twister quilts, sowe got busy and cut them with the Twister ruler and they proceeded to sew them together.
 They both have gotten them sewn together since I took these pix, and are trying out borders.

My niece's baby shower was the next day....she loved her baby twister quilt. She especially loved the little twisters around 2 sides. They really do add to the fun!

I have all my shopping finished and have been cleaning to get ready for my sister's arrival from Canada tomorrow night. She will stay with us for a couple days and then up to my hometown. I have to work until Thursday, then 2 weeks off! I can't wait!

Beginning Quilting and Rag quilting

 The ladies in the Beginning Quilting class are almost finished with their quilts. It is so much fun to see them develop.
 They layered and tied them last week. This Thursday they will learn to make binding and attach it.
 Then they will have their first finished quilt!
 They all turned out so beautiful!
 I didn't get very many pictures during the Peekaboo Rag Quilt class....darn!

A new family member

You might remember this quilt from earlier posts, but doesn't it look so much nicer with my new great nephew Emerson on it? We realized something at the hospital after he was born last week... he is the cutest baby we have ever seen. It has to be true, we all noticed it.
 He and mom are doing just fine!

I have 2 more nieces who are pregnant. One is due in January. She is also having a boy. The other one is due in May....they don't know the sex of her baby yet. Makes for an exciting year for our family!
