Here we are with our two daughters laughing it up on Christmas day.  Fun day for us to share.

Clean Up Day

We had a good Christmas, not great, but good.  We have so many family members who are ill or have issues until my heart was heavy this Christmas season.  But we had three of our children for lunch on Christmas day and that was especially nice.

Last night I made my "to do" list for this morning.  And every time I went by it today I had to add another "to do".  Slowly I am marking off items on the list.  My sweetman has been helping me this morning and I really appreciate that.

Decorations are down and put up, bathrooms cleaned and wash is going.

Today was my "Nicholson" quilt day but we awoke to heavy rains this morning and I just decided best to stay inside.  So I working hard on that list and hopefully I will have it completed by lunch and get upstairs after lunch for some serious sewing.

A New Quilt

These are some of the beginning blocks for a new quilt I am making.  I have 56 blocks finished and today decided that I needed 16 more.  I have used all blues from very light to very dark and I think it will be a beautiful quilt when completed.  The sashing will be the same white as used in the blocks with a dark blue for the cornerstones.  Still undecided about the borders.  Will post more as I get closer to the completion.
