Christmas is coming!

 I absolutely love having grandchildren living in our home!  Gavin is constantly moving so getting a picture of him that isn't blurry is pretty difficult.  He is a happy little boy and loves smiling for his Grandpa.
 Our Christmas tradition of decorating gingerbread cookies was especially fun this year with Ellie.  I think her favorite part may have been licking off the frosting.
 I completed putting all the scrap blocks together and now just have to add the gold/yellow border and then a black border and it will be ready for the quilter.
 Over the last few months I've been collecting blues, oranges and grays for a quilt.  Love these colors together.
Purchased a couple of Layer Cakes in batik fabrics.  I plan on making a large sized Twister quilt with small sized twisters for the border.  The light and dark batiks will be the borders.

My little family will be spending a few days of Christmas with Patrick's family so my husband and I will be facing a pretty quiet Christmas.  I plan on working on some quilting and he plans on watching a few ballgames.  Now that I'm actually ready for Christmas I can enjoy the rest of the season instead of bah humbugging around the place.

Merry Christmas to everyone!    And Happy Quilting!                    Lynda

I had to laugh at Ellie licking the icing off the cookies! I hope your Christmas won't get too lonely, but I'm sure you'll make good use of your time with quilting. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. xx

Christmas always seems a bit brighter when shared with little ones, doesn't it? I'm so glad you are all together still. Merry Christmas, sweet Lynda ~
