Quiet Christmas

Not much to report from here… we watched our annual Christmas eve movie “Die Hard” then went to bed. We had a quiet Christmas opening our gifts and called family & friends to check in.

Below is Campbell’s first *positive* experience with Santa…look at that smile!!! ❤

I’ve taken to feeding the wildlife… here are three squirrels enjoying their feast, LOL

I have one more quilt to finish for my friend and I’m absolutely stumped how to quilt it. This is a panel printed with quilt blocks… I was going to quilt vertical lines with snow flakes alternating each line in green & red thread but now I’m not sure. Then I thought about ‘stitch in the ditch’ of all those printed blocks but I’m a minimal quilter and that feels like a lot :-p … help??? All ideas are welcome 😀

That’s all for now… have a great rest of your weekend!

  1. Vertical lines with snowflakes sounds like a good option to me! I wonder if quilting in the ditch on a panel would be extra difficult as there are no seam ‘ridges’ to guide the foot and needle?

  2. I know nothing about quilting, Sharon, so I can’t advise, but I would like to say how beautiful that quilt is. The recipient is one lucky person! Our neighbors (close friends) made us a quilt when we moved in next door to each other, and we treasure it. Also, the photo of Santa and Campbell is precious. Thanks for sharing that. I found your blog through a comment you left on Pat’s Retirement Transition. It’s nice to “meet” you. Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Christie, thank you for visiting and it’s nice to ‘meet’ you too! I finally got that quilt all quilted so at least that’s off my mind 😉 I enjoy reading Pat’s Retirement blog and will try to use many of her practices to keep me grounded when I retire.
