The girls had fun playing in the first snowfall. Don't they look cold.

I made 3 versions of this quilt for my neices for their birthdays it is so cute with the rainbow rickrack. they are all slightly different to highlight the colors that they each like.

This is the quilt I made fo RJ and Bittany. She loves pink so I hope she likes it.

These arethe pillow casesI just finshed for my neices and nephews. I think they turned out great and they will like them.

Ok so I got to do some quilting this weekend. I had quilt club with Alli on Saturday morning where I got to show off several of the tops I have finished in the last 2 weekends. Then I spent the rest of the morning making bread, chopping veggies, soaking beans, and getting a roast in the crockpot for dinner. This whole trying to eat healthier is alot more work and takes alot more thinking to get it all organized and have things ready. Then I sat down and started to sew the backs on quilt and several table runners and toppers that will be gifts. Now they are ready for binding or tying. The flannel are so warm and snuggly. I also decided to back a couple of cotton ones with the flannel, too, they will be quilted using rick rack. I've done a couple of these already for friends of the girls and they turned out so cute. I will post a picture a soon as I have one quilted. Sunday morning I went scrapbooking for about an hour an a half, so got a good jump on some Christmas gifts, couple more hours and they will be ready to ship off as well.

Ok so heres the link to the basket site. I will probaly try to get at least one done this week so I can see if I rally like them and want o do a whole quilt or not. I do like the idea of maybe making some of th simpler ones more dementional with yoyos or something. Guess I'll just have to play some. I do have to finish the 7 quilts that I am sending back to Minnesota though, so may have to wait one more week. I just rmembered I have a rubber stamping event this coming Sunday, too. I will be nice though cause I will have 3 Christmas presents done when I finish with this event, so that will be good. I really have to get some more pictures uploaded, but of course that means we have to have some good wheather and I have to ger home early enough to take advantage of it.

I just got these pictures today. This is my friends set of twins with the quilts that I made for them. She said that they Must Have them on their beds each night. I think they look like they love them very much. I am so happy that they are using them and loving them. I believe everyone should have at least one blanket that was made just for them with loving thoughts so that each time they pick it up they are reminded that they are not alone in this world that there is at least one person who loved them enough to spend the time to wrap them in love.
