Good Morning!

I have missed you.
This has been a crazier than usual period of time and I have not even been online as much as usual.  Not that that's a bad thing, timewise, but then I don't get to see what you all are doing.

So, tell me, I'd love to hear from you, what's been happening?

In the past year, our grandson turned 1.  Oh, how delightful he is.
They were here for 10 days for Christmas.  This was the first time in 6 years we were all together for Christmas, so you know my heart was singing! 
It was also the first time our youngest daughter and her family met our oldest's fiance and the baby: the first time both our grandchildren were together!!
What joy!
A dream come true!
Oh, I hope these visits are much closer together.

Most of my projects ended up being for the kids' presents during the year.  No matter the promises to self, I never finished as many UFOs as I'd planned.  
Because of that, this year I told self and family I will be finishing, ie sandwiching and quilting, one UFO per month. 
Don't laugh!
Who wants to hold me to it??
I really want to get these done, don' t you?  

The Mancuso Quilt Show is this weekend and I am thoroughly looking forward to it.  
Last year, I never made it to any, so I am ripe for the picking,
 my pockets that is, 
of cash.
I hope the vendors are exciting, I'm sure the quilts will be.
Have you ever been to one of their shows?  

This is one finish from last year.
Nancy Allen, of Bountiful Heirlooms, whose link is in my side bar may recognize this.
It's Victory Garden from Oley.

She's not quilted here, but all the hand applique is done.
Hope you all are staying warm.

Hi Linda. Absolutely lovely! I remember seeing the blocks on display in Oley years ago, but that was long before I tried my hand at applique.

BTW, I tried to respond to your comment on my blog and the message bounced back. It was going to your "Oreo" e-mail account. Should that have worked?

Have a great weekend!

Hope all's well
