A year gone by....new goals

Merry Christmas and Happy New year!!  So I am seeing it has almost been a year since I last posted.  This is what happens when life gets crazy.  A lot has happened this last year, a lot of milestones, some heart break.  This year I plan to change my focus.  I have a plan, a plan that may take years to unfold, but the wheel starts moving now.

First things first.....(sound of trumpets)......I have a new Grand baby!!!

Nora was born at the end of June, just 2 days after my birthday.  She's a doll.  Naturally we HAD to see her so we took a week in July to go visit and spend some time with the kids and the grands.  It was awesome, wish they were closer to us!

Oh.....and her quilt.....

I machine bound this front and back.  Turned out cute.  Her name is embroidered at the top there.

Here are some projects I did manage to finish this last year (you will notice my quilt for my bed is NOT one of them......again.....).

Hailey's quilt got completed.  She loves it....

I bound it in black since the front and back do not match, but it is what she wanted.  It is cuter in person.

The Grandma Bonnie was due for a quilt.  I actually do not have a completed picture of this quilt (shame on me) just the quilt top.

She loved it.  Fits the bed in the Extended Care perfectly and adds a homey touch to her room.  She got it for Christmas.

I had also bound some misc quilts I had hanging around for at least the last 6 years.  Two of them were Christmas wall hangings that I hung on Grandma Bonnie's and Grandma Nola's doors in the Extended Care.  Added some nice homey cheer.

I have no good pictures of them so maybe next time.

That is the extent of my quilty accomplishments.  Not much, but a lot considering the events of the year.

Hope you all are having a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Be safe out there.  We just had a major blizzard blow through, buried in snow.



P.S.  My toddler fried my laptop this fall by dumping pop on it.  So another reason it has been a while....sending love.....
