I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and is able to sit back and relax today. Things were a bit hectic here, and unfortunately Mom wasn't strong enough to come downstairs and join us, but we all had a good day, and Santa was good to everyone.

 Virginia sent me a photo of a quilt she made using one of the patterns from my "A Little Bit More...About Bears" patterns. Isn't it adorable?

Bye for now.

 Edit: Virginia has advised that the ballet slipper pattern she used in her quilt was from the "Ballerinas" pattern by Heidi Pridemore of the Whimsical Workshop.

It's hard to believe Christmas is only a week away! I feel like I've been running in circles, so much to do, and getting very little accomplished.

I finally got the tree up and decorated, and thought you might like to see a few of my favorite ornaments.
Jack Frost is my daughter's favorite.
Inside the teapot, a chipmunk is decorating the tree.
This one has been on our tree for over 30 years!
My daughter gave me this Santa for Christmas last year.

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas.

Vintage Tiles Revisited

Well, Denise (no blog) has done it again! Here is a photo of her second block for "Vintage Tiles Revisited".
Hasn't she done a fabulous job? Does it motivate you? If any of you have missed them, blocks one and two are still available to download on Lecien's web site here

I'm hoping, after the rush of the holiday season, to get started on something new. Maybe some of you that have been waiting till the New Year to get started on "Vintage Tiles Revisited" will share photos of your blocks with us. I hope so.

Well, I'd better get busy and start de-cluttering my house, or Santa won't have any room to leave our presents! lol

Bye for now.
