I made bibs for my grandsons Eli and Masen; here's the link. They were quick and easy. Working with bright and funky fabrics is out of the norm for me, but I loved it and want to start buying more fun-looking prints to make things for my grandkids.
This one of two Swoon quilts I was asked to make for Christmas gifts. Talk about funky fabrics out of the norm! This one was a real stretch for me, but I was so excited about each block that I could hardly wait to start the next one. The other Swoon quilt was simply black and red fabrics with a white background. I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of that one because it was very striking.
I haven't been sewing much - still knitting like a woman possessed. The local quilt group I belong to donated several hats and mittens plus $500 for underwear and other essentials to the local school district to help children in need. With all the dibs and dabs of yarn that I have left from Christmas projects, I'm knitting hats for next year's donation.
My job is going really well. I'm working now for a CPA firm in Erie. There are lots of young people in this office, and the energy in this office is upbeat and fun. We are picking up the pace since it is tax season, and I'm working on Saturdays now. We work like mad during the day now; soon we will be working through lunches and into the evenings, but it's a temporary craziness.
And my new grandson has arrived - Colt Benjamin! He was born in January in Canada, and I have yet to hold him. The pictures and video I've received are just so sweet; I am looking forward to spending time with him and his family. The count for grandchildren is now up to seven - three girls and four boys. My daughters and their families and I are trying to get together once a month for a dinner and to spend time together. I really look forward to this.
And I've been spending time with someone very special. Sometimes I just shake my head and wonder why God is so very generous and good to me. I am so thankful for the turns in my life even though I don't understand the whys and how comes.
