Good Morning Quilters!
It’s the last Monday in 2022, and I will be spending this week planning how to tackle my UFOs next year, how to organize my quilt room to enjoy my time there more, and how to finish quilts without long pauses during the process. It is an exciting time in my quilting journey, so I hope to have weekly plans and goals to share with you in the new year.
Did you have a nice Christmas? We did! I was singing…..”The weather outside was frightful but the fire is so delightful”…….We spent Christmas day at our son’s home in front of their very big fireplace, all cosy and warm. Grand Rapids got slammed with a blizzard over Christmas with frigid temps, snow, and high winds blowing the snow all around. Blizzard warnings were in effect for the first time in over 10 years here.
I enjoy seeing all of your Christmas pictures so I will show you today some Christmas pictures from my house. Merry Christmas! I hope you enjoy them.
This is our tree topper, that was a UFO for a long time, but is now finished, and on top of our tree every year. (Needlepoint from a kit)
A picture of Penny Lane on the front porch with a red and white “crossed canoes” pattern quilt that I purchased as a top, and finished into a quilt. I love red and white quilts. This picture is from a Christmas past - when we didn’t have very much snow. (This year there is nothing on the front porch except the white bench, covered with a thick blanket of frigid snow!)
A picture of Penny and me, taking a nap together under a vintage quilt that I purchased a long time ago. The red and green feathered stars are all hand pieced and the quilt is nicely hand quilted. I bought it from another quilter while I lived in Virginia, and I don’t have any history on it.
I’m looking forward to reading your year end posts, hearing about your Christmas, and how much snow you had, or didn’t have. Link up below and let us know what you are doing in this last week of 2022. Thank you so much for joining the Design Wall Monday Linky Party this week. Please mention it in your blog so others can join us.
