Flowers and Leaves

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
Ours was great, the drive to OK was good, thought I was
really worried, because of course our route took us right
thru the closed roads because of the storm around Denver.
I got up at 3 am on the 23rd to check conditions on the
internet and decided (based on internet web cams of the roads)
that we would head out. The roads were great except about
60 miles on Neb. highway 26 that were slushy, losing us several
hours, but after 20 hours we arrived at DD's house at 3 in the
morning. Yep, I was up 24 hours and of course it was several hours
before we went to bed. LOL.

What a wonderful time of family and celebration we had.

I was hoping to post these quilt pictures before Christmas, but of course
Blogger was acting up (now I see why people are moving). So now that
things are back to normal, I have added a picture for you.

Enjoy.

Below is a picture of the quilt I made for Destiny, my granddaughter
who is 8. This is pattern came from one Fons and Portor magazines.
It is a quilt as you go type. There are 88 circle/squares in it and I can
say I won't do it again, though I love the way it turned out.....moving it
around under my small machine was very frustrating to me. I ended up
finishing it by hand. Now perhaps in a small version, which would be
just fine to do.














The back is just as pretty as the front with all the different
fabrics. Destiny loves pinks so I thought I'd make it with the
thought of pink flowers wrapped in lovely green leaves.
