I Finished a Couple of Projects!

Woo Hoo!  It has been a while since I have been able to complete sewing projects.  That would be any projects actually.  Below is my zig zag quilt that I had added to my 2016 Finish list.  I sent it to be quilted, Kathy did a fabulous job and now it is bound and ready to use.  I do have to add a label though now that I think about it.

I took the pictures on a rainy day so they were taken inside and do not do the quilt justice.

You can see the quilting a little in the picture below.  I love that Kathy was creative with the quilting.

I am now sure where this quilt will end up or with whom but for now I am content that it is complete.

The project below was made for a family in our church who lost their sweet baby at birth.

We completed it and gave it to sweet baby Ian's family.  

We were able to give this as a gift of rememberance of this child.  It was a labor of love made with a few tears.

I hope to have a little sewing time and maybe finish a projet or too in December but I know it will be a busy time.  I want to focus on the blessings of now and not miss what each day brings.
Maybe it is time for a little Christmas music and some decorating.


I will link with Julie at The Crafty Quilter and share my November finish.

Fall Fun In Wisconsin

We had the privilege of traveling to Wisconsin to spend time with our family there.  We don't usually see each other more that once a year so it is always fun to be together and catch up.

Here they are our grandchildren wearing their new Seattle hats, sitting outside on a beautiful fall day.

Each fall we go to the pumpkin patch and the kids pick out pumpkins and gourds to take home and decorate with.

It is always great to spend time with these kids.  Full of energy and fun.  Lily had just figured out what her costume would be for Trick or Treating.

Time to go home, it always seems to come so quickly.

Thankful for the time we had together.  We are blessed.
