My Holiday Recap and Winners of the Happy New Year Gifts

I wanted to share a few of my favorite holiday pictures with you.  Before I do that, I want to announce the winners of the kit and book from my last post.  Notice I said winners – I was going to do just one, but I was so pleased with the response from all the binding lovers, that I decided to do 2!!!  The winners, picked randomly are . . . . . . .

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised to see how many of you enjoy doing the handwork on your bindings.  As usual, I enjoyed reading all your comments and appreciate you all sharing your thoughts.  Not that I am biased or anything, but I happen to think I have the best readers!


Now, on to my holiday pics –




















I could go on and on, but I better stop with the pictures from Christmas.  Along with the all the holiday celebrations, we also had to squeeze in a few other parties.  We celebrated my neice Isabella’s 5th birthday –


Notice the quilt on the table – My Mom makes every grandkid a  special birthday quilt for everyone to sign at their birthday parties.

I love this shot of her opening her gifts  –  She was so excited that she was moving so fast, causing a blur!!


and my Niece Addilyn’s 1st birthday. 


Notice the  quilt, again made by Mom.  There are 9 present blocks and everyone at the party signed the block with the #1 on it.

Happy Birthday girls!


In the month of December, we also had another reason to celebrate – a new baby was born into the family – Aubrey Grace.  She was 10 lbs, so she hardly looks like a new born!   Here she is with Joel’s sister -aka grandma.

    Heather, thank you for sharing your family photos! Such a great looking bunch!
    I wrote you a while back because I couldn’t find your Charmed and Dangerous book. Well today I popped into a quilt shop that I don’t normally get to visit and there it was…all packed getting ready for Road To California. I snatched it up though!!! Can’t wait to get to sewing. I didn’t respond to your last post, but I love doing my bindings! I love every part of the quilt process. But I am especially fond of handwork, and I like that I can bring it with me into the family room to visit with my husband or on a trip in the motorhome, or whatever.
    Happy New Year!
