December Work and Fun

I have been a busy girl... Sorry for my very long absence! I have been working at my real job and sewing for friends. Work is very busy around the holidays so I spend more hours there than I am accustomed to but I work with some wonderful people so it is all OK... It also provides more money for fun things like fabric.

The first photograph are the two gifts I created for two of my quilting friends. The two women I went on the quilt run with in February and I purchased fabric at each store we visited and then divided the fabric between the three of us. We were each to make a wall hanging that measured 10 x 55 from the fabric we received and then we would present them to one another at our Winter Solstice Party. The two hangings below are the two wall hangings I received from my friends. I think they are just beautiful. So different from each other but incredible together! I will also make one for myself so the Three of them can hang together.

We had a last minute change in our holiday plans. Our kids had very busy schedules so Mark and I decided to pack everything up and travel to our daughters home for Christmas and our son who lives in the same town came to join us. It was such an enjoyable time. All I cared about was spending the time with my family and we did that so I am a very Happy Mom! I hope all of you had a safe and fun holiday.

Butch Wishes each of you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
