A Quilty Christmas 2014

 Here is all the family posing for another Packer Christmas photo.  Only person missing is Christopher (my nephew) who was sleeping hard and would not wake up!  We did all go in the bedroom and pose with him so he wouldn't be left out!
See, here we all are nodding off with him between fits of laughter.  He slept through it all!
 Mac, Hannah and Coleman also each got their Quiltville quilts!  Mac has Scrappy Mountain Majesties, Hannah has My Blue (Purple) Heaven and Coleman has the flimsy for Moth in the Window--I need to add a few more rows and get it quilted, but Coleman didn't mind waiting for it a bit longer.

I have really enjoyed having all three kids here for Christmas this year!  They have turned into such amazing people and it has been fun catching up with them in real time!
 Kathy surprised me with this Go Baby...now to order a few dies so I can use it!  So happy that Terri upgraded and Kathy decided we needed one!

 Yesterday we took a road trip and along with way I wound up at Love it Again in Prescott.  They were having a buy one get one free sale and their prices are great anyway since it is a second hand shop.  I got all of this fabric (over ten yards) for $35.00!  I also got a 5 dollar "coin" to use like cash when I go up for quilt camp!
 Finally came home tonight and was itching to get sewing.  I haven't started clue 5 for Grand Illusion, but my brain is so tired I decided to wait on that.  I put together one of the little "Christmas Past and Presents" mini mystery quilts from Temecula Quilt Company I added sashing all around because I like it better that way.  Love it, one more to go!

It looks as though you had a really wonderful Christmas with family! The quilts you made your kids are awesome.....of course they are, they are Bonnie quilts! I wish I had a place like "Love it Again" around my neck of the woods!
