'Tis the Season...

I got my sewing machine out again and finished up these baby quilts...
Bright, cheerful colors...

I brought these to the sewing store yesterday... The count so far for this year is at 1,208 + my 5= 1,213 for the year!  Last year we did 508,  so the program has grown tremendously!  It does help to take the pressure off when so many have stepped forward and so generously gave of their time to help in this wonderful cause.  Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston is so grateful for our generous contributions!  And Wayside Sewing is to be commended for providing the materials to make this all possible.  A big thank you to all involved in this worthwhile project!

I have been working on some other things, too,  which I will be showing soon. 

The weather has been nice here and I was able to work outside yesterday.  I cut back all the bushes on my side yard.  I didn't think I would get a chance to do that this year.  Now they are ready for Spring. (Always looking forward to Spring...)  And now, passersby can see my Christmas lights better, too!  haha

Did some Christmas shopping the other day,  and have a lot more to do!

I started addressing my Christmas cards last night.

I have my miniature club meeting tonight and we are having a holiday party tonight.  We will have food,  drinks and presents.  Can't wait!  I baked some brownies for it and I'm bringing the drinks, all non-alcoholic, --  'cause we're all driving.  hehe

That's all for now.  So much to do,  so little time!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

I always enjoy seeing your precious baby quilts. What a wonderful cause. Hope you all have a great time at the meeting/party tonight. Brownies sound so good to me!

Hey girl these are beautiful as ever. You should be so proud of all the quilts you donate. I picked up a great quilt mag today called Primitive Quilts and projects. I love all the projects listed and they look so old fashioned which you know I love. LJ
