Been gone so long.......

Hope you all had a good Christmas. Ours was wonderful. A couple of our children and their families came for a few days (making 1 cute little granddaughter and 1 very active grandpuppy). Having family around sure makes Christmas more fun. I think I love having Christmas on a Sunday so that we can attend our Church meeting and then come home to open gifts. Here is one of our little Ellie enjoying the bag just as much as the gift that came inside.

Ellie helped us make pies using her very own rolling pin and dough.
I saw this simple felt Christmas tree on pinterest and knew I had to make one also. A very simple triangle tree with magnets to hold it to the fridge. The ornaments were just circles cut from felt I had on hand. It was a big hit with Ellie. She spent a lot of time redecorating the tree each day.
I've also started a Rikrakasaurus quilt for my niece who is having her 3rd son in January. I found the pattern in a Quiltmaker May/June 1997 magazine and have always wanted to make it. I'm now looking for some dinosaur fabric to use for the outside border and maybe some wild striped inner border and sashing.

Looking forward to 2012!

Happy Quilting! Lynda
