Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!




"It came without ribbons! It came without tags!
It came without packages, boxes or bags!
 Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
'Maybe Christmas,' he thought, 'doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more.'" 

Theodore Seuss Geisel (aka, Dr. Seuss)

Stitch-a-long update



I haven't posted an update on this project for awhile.  I have one block left to do and some of the patchwork in between.  They are cut just have to put them together :0)


 

Love how the sunshine touched this block


I'm really enjoying working on this quilt.

 


My kitty Jasmine enjoying some flowers I brought into the house.  She broke a vase yesterday playing with the flowers.

My handsome boy Reed
 
 
Star, always smiling :0)

One of my favourite late summer flowers, they are so cheerful.
 
 
Its been a busy long weekend full of gardening and painting.  My DH spent the last two days scraping and painting the outside of the house.  I helped where a high ladder wasn't involved, heights are not my thing, lol.
 
 

Hope everyone is having a lovely long weekend!

Star had an occular cyst removed from her eyelid.  She is happy to finally have her cone off and is all healed.
And lots of training with the dogs

Happy New Year!

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Happy New Year and I hope everyone has a Great 2012!

A few pics of the last few days of 2011......

Our tree, which we haven't had one in many years due to lack of space.  My Tis a Season quilt is hanging in the background.

Can the dogs get any closer to the woodstove :0)

I finished my quilt top from my LQS's BOM.  Nice to get that done before the end of the year!
These pics are from my phone.  We found a beautiful spot to hike behind a local arena, where I track and train the dogs.
