Hello friends. Are you frazzled with all the running around and activities this week? I'm pleased to say, other than wrapping a few more gifts, my days are slowing down. Tomorrow we have four of Kim's kiddos here and then tomorrow night have our two oldest grandsons here for a sleepover. Such fun! Many of you have asked about Little Man's lap quilt. These photos didn't turn our very straight, sorry(but the quilt is straight). I will say initially I was just going to make him a wall hanging, but Kim let me know he'd love a lap quilt. It was the fastest quilt I've every put together-as you can see; but when you have a very active 4 year old who is rough and tumble, it made sense to keep it very simple. I fell in love with this fabric and knew he would too-he knew the names of wildlife here in Colorado before he knew the names of farm animals. He is truly a Colorado boy. Instead of doing lots of quilting, I machine quilted along the Aspen trunks on the outside of the leaves. I was going to outline the Rockies too, but changed my mind. He is also getting a new pair of Ug's-but the ones that have a face like a bear.
I hope you are finding time to enjoy this blessed season!
