Quilter's Family. Quilter's Life

A Little Break

Spring Break is here!! 

I planned, shopped, cleaned and cooked to my heart's content. We had a wonderful Easter. Even though it was chilly outside, the Easter Egg Hunt was a blast.  I love the excitement as my grandchildren gathered their eggs and opened each one to find a treasure.

The house is still clean, the laundry is still done, I took care of errands this morning and we have plenty of leftovers.....so.....let the quilting begin!!! I am excited to have a few days to catch up on some projects, sewing with a friend and perhaps some fabric shopping.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that you will also find some time for quilting.

Happy quilting,
Laurel

Happy New Year

 I hope all of you have been able to spend time over the holidays with family and/or friends.  We have had the pleasure and opportunity for both, from our youngest grandchild to our oldest and dearest friends. 

I especially love the time spent with the children.  Their excitement and wonder are infectious and they bring smiles to everyone around them.   I love that each moment of the time spent with a child is an opportunity to make a new memory and introduce them to the traditions of the Holiday. 

Time spent with our dear friends sparks many conversations about past adventures and the posibilities of adventures yet to come.

Happy New Year 2017

Happy New Year!!! I hope each of you and your families experience good health, peace and happiness during 2017.

After the hectic holiday season I think we look for the new year to be a fresh start.  Many of us make New Year's Resolutions and vow to do better in some aspect of our lives. 

One of my nieces forwarded a neat idea to me. Not a resolution necessarily, but something to try to keep up with during the new year.    I'm sorry the author is unknown.  The idea is to save a "snippet" from each fabric you use during 2017.  At the end of the year you will have a sample of each fabric as a kind of a fabric timeline!!!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  I hope you has a great day and were able to do something, to make you happy.

Today was a near perfect day for me!  The weather is finally warm, sunny and springlike.  I cooked a big dinner that everyone seemed to enjoy.  My family was able to be together.  It was wonderful to have us all under one roof for the day.  Our grandson is getting so grown-up and our granddaughter is learning to walk.  Their parents are wonderful parents and it is awesome to watch as life goes on and the family evolves.
