Carolina Christmas Quilt = In progress

I decided to take on the challenge of Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt.  I chose my colors....they look kind of bland by the phone camera but they really are kind of pretty.  It will be scrappy reds, greens, creams and a gold to pull it all together.  No fabric has been purchased (so far).  All fabrics are coming from my stash so it will be pretty scrappy.  I did not want to do Christmas fabrics as I have other plans for that stash.

Black Friday

Everyone is out shopping. You could not PAY me to step foot into a store today :-)  There are tiny wispy snowflakes falling.  Good day to be inside putting up the Christmas tree.  Outside decorations can wait until tomorrow.

Thanksgiving Day

The top photo is my Granny and Grandpa, John and Thelma Taylor. I miss holiday dinners at my grandma's house.  You were expected to be there.  I never met my grandpa, he died before I was born.
The bottom photo is a quilt from the Vintage days that I have been hand quilting for the past 5-6 years.  It's been a long haul as I take it out and put it away depending on what's happening in life at the time.  It's very tedious work but it is also almost done.

The turkey is in the oven and will be transported to my son's later this afternoon for a family dinner.  He takes his cooking skills after his mommy so dinner should be pretty tasty.

Baby Day

Today was baby morning with Hunter.  Droped some formula and diapers off.  He had friends his age coming to visit so it was time for grandma to exit :-)  A house full of babies and baby toys can just make your heart melt and also make you break your neck at the same time. 
The rest of the day will be spent trying to finish hooking up electronics in the house as well as work on some Christmas projects, will post those pics when they are complete.  It's a pretty day and I should be out hanging up Christmas lights but that can wait until the kids are here next week, they can do it and I will keep the coffee pot full to warm their cold hands..........that's mamma's job!!!

Orion Star Quilt

I made this top this past week. The star is made using the flying geese technique which I have never done.  It was pretty easy and I think the colors all turned out well.

Nothing major going on.  Have a few more projects in the works but can't seem to get my photos to download into the computer, for some reason.
Life is good, baby Hunter is growing by the day and such a happy baby.
