This is my favorite time of year for many reasons, but this year I have something to be grinchy about.
I flew to Indiana last Friday to drive back home with my son for the holidays. We hit snow in Southeastern Pennsylvania and got snowed in. We pulled off Friday night and resumed our trip Sunday morning. While I am very grateful that we arrived home safe and sound, I was not grateful for the stomach bug that hit me Sunday night.
This is not eggnog and cookies, or wine and cookies, which is what I prefer to consume this time of year....
Okay, on to more cheery things; doll quilts!
Here is a quilt I made for Hanna featuring our 2 cats, Luna and Starbuck. Luna has 1 gold eye and one brown (damaged) eye, hence the different buttons.
the "cat back"
Here are 2 little log cabin quilts. The quilt on the right was a gift from my friend, Mary C. I like to use these under candles or tiny trees, etc.
This is a early doll quilt for Hanna. It's a four-patch variation.
I love this Christmas Paper Doll fabric on the back. I made her a pillowcase with this the same year.
This was wonderful gift from my friend, Jill. I still don't feel worthy of all the hand work that went into this one!~ I especially love it because I can use it all through the winter. Thanks again Jill!
And lastly, this is my Christmas Quilt of 2009 - Whooville. I was hoping to have it quilted, but with the snow, the flu bug, it's just not going to happen.
I was inspired with my new passion for selvages. The first 2 houses were free of them, then I realized that they could be used as Christmas lights. The composition was inspired by "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" with the central tree.
I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Hope-filled Holidays and a Creative New Year!
