Eva decorated two gigantic gingerbread cookies this week. She spent an hour placing the frosting and decorations on them. When she finished, she declared "They are Nana and Denny". That would be Denny on the left, and Nana on the right. We have been Gingerbreadized.
One last quilt to share with you. I am giving away a few more in addition to this, but I have shared the photos of them so many times I won't do it again. This top was made a few years ago, but I never had just the right place for it, or the right person to give it to. Now I do! The fabrics for this quilt were all from my stash, and included a number of cozy flannels mixed in with the wovens. It has such a cozy masculine vibe, doesn't it? I think this may have been my first piano key border, the start of a life long love. As always, my quilter found the perfect quilting design for it. The pattern is called "Bull's Eye", but it has kind of a labyrinthian feel to it.
Last but not least, here are 13 of the 14 Christmas Gift Quilts all wrapped up and ready to go! (The 14th has been mailed to Wisconsin).
I feel so good about finishing up these 14 quilts and giving them to homes where they will be appreciated (that is what one always wishes anyway). These quilts represent years of work, and I feel are a kind of legacy from me to my family.
Thanks to all of you who have read and commented on my blog this past year. I hope you all have a marvelous holiday with your loved ones and look forward to sharing bits of my life and love of quilting with you in 2017.
