Hope You Had a Merry Christmas

We did.  It was so good to spend time with family.  But I'll let you in on a much as I enjoy Christmas December 26th is my favorite day.  I can sit back and relax.

I have some quilts to show you.  You've seen bits and pieces and now you can see the finished quilts.

There is 2 pictures of this quilt.  I think Alecia and Jon liked their quilt.  Alecia is my granddaughter and Jon is her boyfriend.

This quilt was for Stacy.  She really liked it.  She told me she wanted a queen size next year.  I guess I had better start now.  Stacy is my son Michael's girlfriend.  They are perfect for each other.

This quilt was made for my grandson Brian and his girlfriend Jess.  The label says it is for both of them...Jess says its hers.

I made this quilt for my granddaughter Ella.  It is big enough to cuddle with Mom or Dad while rocking in the Rocking Chair.

For the first time in 4 years all my siblings were together for Christmas.

Jay, Me, Sharon and Steve.  I'm the oldest, next Sharon, then Jay and last but not least Steve.

We also got a picture of everyone.

Back row: Sharon, Jay, Me, Grandson Brian, Steve, Daughter Kim, Her husband Robert, and my son Mike.  Then Jay's wife Cindi, Son in law Chris, Granddaughter Cassidy, my daughter Kelley, Brian's girlfriend Jess (holding my daughter's dog Bear), Granddaughter Alecia (Holding Sammie) and finally my hubby Terry.  My son Patrick and family were not able to make it. 

Today I'm relaxing...playing with my new brother sewing machine.  Making some 4 1/2" paper pieced blocks.  and getting some applique blocks prepped.  I have 3 more to make and then I am done.

Have a great weekend.

Happy Holidays and lots of hugs, Cathy

Wow! It was great to see all those quilt you made for Christmas. It looks like everyone is super pleased and with your new machine it sounds like you'd better get started on next year. How nice to see your family. It's those special moments when everyone is able to get together and share the holiday that makes everyone smile. Happy new year!

It was a quiet day on Christmas and again today. But that was fine with us.

You got several quilts done for Christmas gifts. Now you can sit back and sew for yourself with the new sewing machine. I know nothing about Brother sewing machines.

Hosted DH's side of the family today, so it was a house full. I will rest tomorrow--after church. : )
