Happy New Year!

It's been a long time since my last post. Things get busy with the kids and I've been sewing/quilting when I get a few minutes rather than getting onto the computer.

The kids are getting bigger... they will be 23 months and 9 months by the end of this week. Emily has hit quite a few 'milestones' this last week. She now has 3 teeth popped through - 2 bottom and one on top. She started crawling on Tuesday
AND pulled up to standing on the same day. By Thursday... she was crawling all over the house way too quickly for Mommy. Needless to say... the tree came down Thursday morning before it got toppled over by Emily pulling on the branches.
Grandma (MIL) was up from Dec 22 until this morning from Florida. It was wonderful having her visit..I got to sleep in pretty much every morning until 7:30 or 8 as she got up with the kids. The kids have been battling colds the last month and Aidan was diagnosed with a sinus infection on Tuesday morning. One dose of antibiotic and he started eating like his old self and is much less cranky. I think he is feeling better and back to his old happy self. Now if I can just get him to say more words instead of Naaaw (his No) and Uuuhhh with a pointing finger at what he wants. He does tend to say a new word or two a day now.

I finally quilted my charity quilt over the last 2 days. Just need to hand finish the binding.

I did a quick panel for the kids for xmas. I love the fabric and the quilting went well on my new 24x24 quilting table for my machine. That was my birthday present in November and I love it.

I've also been plugging away at the Lady of the lake blocks for Mom's quilt and keeping up with the BOM that my quilt guild is doing this year.

This is just the 4 I did while my MIL was here over the holiday. I think that gives me either 20 or 22 completed 12 inch blocks. I have 4 in process and another 10 cut and ready to sew. I hope to have all the blocks done by the end of January, together in February and quilted in March. The 'goal' is to have it done for my guild quilt show in April... but we'll see what happens.
Hope everyone has a prosperous and healthy new year!

A very Happy New Year to you too. Love what you've been doing. I have a partly completed Lady of the Lake quilt somewhere. I think it needs borders.
