There's a story behind this quilt I made for Barbara. It was a long time in the making for starters and then when I sent it to the quilters it came back with puckers, pleats and the back completely uneven. As big a difference as 3 inches on one end to 6 inches on the other. In my hysteria, between Susan Nixon and my DH they got me calmed down. lol I went ahead and "undid" where I could and did the binding with the intent of giving it to Barbara with the story of what happened. Then making her a new one. Well bless her heart, as she opened it and I was telling her what happened, she kept saying no she didn't want another one she wanted only this one. lol :) Friends are so amazing, no matter how flawed an item or WE are they love us anyway. What a wonderful Christmas present she gave me. (that's Barbara standing next to the quilt:) )
We had a great time all day with the family and of course ate till we couldn't move and will be eating left overs the rest of the week. I hope everyone's Christmas was as good as mine and hope we're all looking forward to a very very Happy New Year.

May God Bless and Keep You All this Holiday Season. May the New Year bring you prosperity and happiness. May He keep all of our Soldiers in Iraq and safe and bring them all home to their families. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year everyone.

My granddaughter Samantha and her best friend Morgan came over this week end and dyed socks:) They had a great time and as you can see on the second picture they began to get very creative:) Dots, attempts at stripes, etc. They plan on coming back this week end to do some more for Christmas gifts so I think we'll all be running around in tie dyed socks! lol Tooooooo much fun!
