Quilting Fun and Christmas Smiles and Merry Wishes

Here is another delightful wreath from one of my workshops...pretty fun.
Ahh Santa needs a nap along with the little ones he loves
Below is my first large Christmas tree quilt. Now I am working on my new one for workshops. This is the most fun I have had in forever. This is such a fun theme and you can make the most whimsical and wonderful ornaments with my patterns and directions. Hope to see you in the coming year.
And finally here is three WISE girls who went to Europe for Christmas Markets and fun and came home happy and healthy and thankful for our many many blessings (our friend candy took this photo and he is wise too)
Friend, I am wrapping small gifts for my Grandkids and listening to carols and enjoying the glow of the Christmas tree while my husband Mark sleeps.
I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Inventive New year filled with good friends, and God's many many blessings. Thank you for being so good to me this year and keeping me and my family in your prayers.
I hope to see you this year for more friendship and quilting fun.
