Merry Christmas

Wishing you a Merry Christmas from Snowy Minnesota! 7 inches last night and more coming tonight. Might be 12-18 inches of the white stuff before it's over. We wish to thank all of you for your friendship and support this last year. Quilters are special people and we are truly thankful to be in such a wonderful business. We hope you all have a wonderful quilt filled new year.

Holiday travels

I've had some fun this past week unrelated to quilting. We started with a great Thanksgiving visit with my sister Carol and her family in Nashville. We toured the Country Music Hall of Fame and visited a nearby site of a Civil War battle. It took place on the grounds of a plantation and we were able to tour the restored home. I may have gotten some inspiration for a quilt from the floorcloth in the dining room.

Another fun part of our trip was a stop on the way home to pick up "Charlie", an Australian Shepherd / Poodle puppy. For awhile I'll have to see how much quilting I can get done during "naptime".
