Hope everybody had a great Christmas! Ours was nice and quiet! Granddaughter came with her parents for a bit. She definitely figured out how to open presents this year. She opened every bodies:) She is almost 3 now:) Growing like a weed and such a delight!
I have been a quilting machine. What??? Aren't you suppose to be off you ask??? Yes I am so I am SO quilting my tops:) It got to where I couldn't fit any more new tops in the closet:( So I am clearing them out by quilting them:) YEA! I have SO many more to make and need the room to store them until I quilt them:) ha ha!!!
Sorry this post is VERY picture heavy as I had helpers)

First up is my Snowman BOM. It has been in the closet for about a year.
All hand applique and embroidery.
Had great fun playing:)
Here is the gorgeous backing! I did feathers in the border.
Here is my Whoooolala quilt!
If you remember Karin knitted the owls for my Birthday back in June.
I used a layer cake and just played  to make the quilt:) Had a lot…

Merry Christmas 2013!

Hope everybody is all finished with their shopping and wrapping and are now baking:) We are going light on the baking as hubby and I both lost that precious weight and don't want it back just yet:) That doesn't mean we won't indulge a bit this coming week:)
The in laws are doing great! SIL left on Wed and they are on their own. He is back to driving... I know a bit scary but they are in Fl where they all drive  about the same:)
It was SO nice to have the week off from customer quilts:) I have my snowman quilt about 1/2 way quilted and am hoping to finish it today or tomorrow:) So there will be a picture next week for sure!
Since there wasn't much "work" being done I took pictures of my workspace we call the studio:)

Do you believe there are only 10 more days until Christmas? Are you all done?? I am just about finished. Will wrap later today and get pkgs in the mail this week.
We um I mean I have scaled WAY back on the baking and candy making. Just a small batch of fudge for hubby and me:)
Have been losing weight nice and slow and def don't want to add a bunch back on! I gained 10 before the in laws came and then 10 more while they were here. I only have 7 more to go:) yea!!!
Got my customer quilts done last week so I get this week to do a bit of quilting for me;) I have a snowman BOM that I made last year that will get quilted this week plus a few get togethers with friends:)
Ok on with the pictures!

WOW Winter has SO come to Texas!!!!
Wed it was a very warm 84 and since then it hasn't been warm at all! We have had a cold blast that has left snow and ice here:( Fortunately the ground was warm and no ice on the streets but I have some beautiful icicles on the house! Suppose to be above freezing today. 19 last night and didn't get out of the 20's yesterday. At least it feels like Christmas:)
My quilting pile is dwindling so nicely:) I have 2 more for this week and one of mine and then I will be closing shop until next year:) Am looking forward to the break!
Ok on with the pictures:)
First up are ice pics:) These are not real poinsettias!
Off my in laws shed.
What I see out the front door... just turn your head sideways. Can't get it flipped:( Now onto quilting: This is Dot's SIL from CA's quilt. She needed it faster than her quilter could get it done so I got to quilt it:) Once again you have to turn your head?
These pics were take outside on the 84 degree da…
