Pictures I promised

I may be late posting my picture, but let's see if I can do this. .

It has been 17 years (that's what the news channels say) since we have had a white Christmas in the Nashville, TN area. We didn't have anything like my sister has in Buffalo, NY area, but it was still pretty and was wonderful to have snow on Christmas

This is my little guy waking up on Christmas morning. He was more interested in finding his puppy instead of looking to see what Santa left for him.


This is his new puppy, Gibby. They have really bonded and have become friends, except when Stevie wants to play Wii and Gibby wants to chew on the cord or controls. Not the best pose

We had the most wonderful (use that word a lot) Christmas. Spent time with my parents and my oldest son. Had my first Christmas dinner in our new house. I enjoyed every minute. Snow, family, food, gifts what wasn't there to love.
This is the quilt I made for our Secret Santa at work. I was real surprized that it was the men in the office that wanted and stole the quilt from each other until it was declared a "dead" gift. I thought one of the women would have stole it. It was a simple quilt without a lot of piecing but our price limit was $25.00 and we all know you can't make a quilt for $25.00. So I justified by using items I hand left over or had been in my stash for awhile.
This is the back, I almost like it better than the front.

Here is a close up of the fabric in the center of the quilt. Love snowmen almost as much as gingerbread men.

A close up of the Christmas trees. Simple but I thought it turned out very pretty.

I hope you have enjoyed the pictures, more to come.
