Merry Christmas! ( I'm nearly computer-less)

Our laptop crashed today. Well, I guess that's one way to take a break, but I didn't really want to. I have blogs to visit and etsy shopping to do! Hee!  I may have limited accesss to a computer the next week, so I wanted to make sure to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Since I can't post anything new for the time being I thought it would be fun to post the quilt my mom and I made together. It was from over a year ago and I don't think a lot of you have seen it. We each made about 22 blocks, with all different fabrics, and quilted it on the longarm machine at a local quilt shop. We wanted to say we did the whole quilt. Mom being the more skilled sewing gal, finished the binding. It was a gift for my brother and his wife. I forget the dimensions but it's pretty much a king size quilt.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
