Christmas Rush

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was very busy with family and friends. We had our Christmas Eve celebration with my husbands side of the family, and then stopped to visit with the family of the woman who babysat our daughter for many years. Mary is getting up in years now, but she is still as sharp as a tack. We had to cut our visit short with her. I still had a turkey in the kitchen sink thawing so we needed to get home.

I was up til 3 am putting the finishing touches on a quilt I made for my mom. Nothing like waiting til the last minute. I shared a sneak peak of it a couple posts ago, but now I can show you the finished product.

There were a few teary eyes around the tree this year when I presented the quilt to my mom. One of the girls was especially touched to be add to the quilt, she is the significant other of one of my nephew's. I included her and her children, after all they are my nephew's "family". Such sweet memories made today.

So many people here today, we almost had to sit on top of each other...amazing how there always seems to be enough room for everyone.

Your quilt is darling, Joyce! But it is the joy and emotion it created in others that is a testament to the healing power of a quilt and all the love the quilter puts into it! What a blessing you are to your family!
