Charming Girls December Challenge.....

First, I want to say a BIG Thank you for all the prayers and words of encouragement since my big announcement on Monday.  I personally think I have held up pretty well.  With the exception of Wednesday, but that wasn't my fault.  It was cold and miserable and rainy and I just didn't want to do anything so I'm blaming Mother Nature!

Since I seem to have so much time on my hands these days, I am jumping back on the Charming Girls Challenge wagon.  I somehow missed last month.

This month, I want to quilt this cute little baby quilt.  It is going to my husband's favorite cousin.  She just had her first baby at age 37 in October and he is a cutie!  I need to have this finished before we go to the in-laws at Christmas.

And just for kicks and giggles, I am going to throw in the HoHoHo quilt that is STILL not quilted.  I'm not promising that it will be done before Christmas but I really would like to have it finished before I put the Christmas decorations away the first week of January.

I'm sure you guys are tired of seeing this picture.  Next time I post it, it will be quilted!

Blessings, Cathi

Hello My Friend

I hope that you are feeling better and moving onward and upward (easy for me to day).

Love those 2 quilts - you amaze me!

Nothing like a little quilt therapy to sooth the soul. Hard not to worry about the job situation, but I am glad to see you are taking advantage of your time and getting some sewing done. I actually finished a Christmas table runner Sunday, felt good to be sewing again. Hope to see you Saturday with my cookies in hand.
