I am not sure where this last year has gone, but it flew by too quickly! Seems as though the years get shorter and shorter as each one passes. For me, it means I need to spend more time each day paying attention to the greatness in my life.
I am so blessed to have the friends and family that I do! Not many can say how loved they feel by those around them! I definitely feel loved!
When my daughter was married, she and her now husband picked out fabric to be made into cloth napkins for the dinner at their wedding. After the wedding, I gathered the napkins, washed them, and used them to make a wedding quilt for her and her husband. The backing of the quilt was made of fabric squares their guests signed and decorated. Quotes, hopes and wishes for the couple were also added to the squares. This was the “guestbook” at their wedding. It took me far longer to make their quilt than I wanted, but I was able to finally hand deliver it to them.
Here are a couple of the closeups of the custom quilting:
Here are are a couple close up pictures of the back of the quilt:
My darling daughter is snuggled under the quilt:
I was also finally able to finish a t-shirt quilt for my son. These are from t-shirts he gave me several years ago. (Don’t want to rush through projects!)
I am looking at new directions for 2018. It is time for a bit of a change for me and my business. I have been looking at a variety of ideas and am not certain which ones I will adopt this coming year, as yet. I know I need to change some things so I stay fresh, excited, motivated, and creative during this next year.
I am still going to be longarm quilting for clients, as I really enjoy this part of my business. I also know that it is important for me to have a short turn around for my clients as well. I hope each of you contact me in the next few weeks to secure a time in the calendar for this next year. I will still fit you in when possible. Please let me know if you would like a spot for the month of February.
May you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Always count your many blessings!
