Happy Birthday Dear Christi

Today was my dear, beautiful daughter's birthday...she is such a blessing!
We actually celebrated with family on Monday night dining on Chicken Enchiladas and Strawberry Cake.
So blessed to have my family close by to celebrate special occasions and everyday life.

I finished the appliqué on the Cozy Christmas blocks.
Now they are ready to become a top...
Which needs to happen quickly since making this a quilt top is one of my goals for the month.

Temecula Quilt Company's 
First Friday Sew Along seemed a good way to use up some of those scraps I had trimmed.
The first month's blocks eased us in gently with simple four patches sewed up into larger blocks. Two 6" blocks and a 12".  Hope I can keep up.

Had fun last night with the Farmer and Her Mother learning about healthy eating . A yummy dinner, too.

  • Family....can't say this too often
  • Birthday celebrations 
  • Snoring dogs

Take Care,


  1. You'd better get stitchin' if you are going to make your goal for January with the Christmas quilt.
    Great picture of Christi and Rob and the grands. They've been through so much and a blessing to see Rob's smiling face.
    Sorry, but your first gratitude made me laugh. It can be taken two ways :)
    Hugs :)

  2. Love the Xmas blocks. It's going to make a great quilt.
