Why do you blog?  I have noticed lately that a lot of blogs are plugging products.  It seems that some young mothers are making money blogging so they can stay home with their young children.  I applaud folks that can do that but it is not for me.  

I blog for the creative interaction of other quilters.  I love hearing from quilters from all over the country and the world.  It is so gratifying for me.  Thanks to  all of you that read my blog and comment.  

These are a couple of pillows I made for my new couch.  I am discovering how much fun pillows are to make.   Yes I am into lots of color these days.

When we cleaned out our attic in the fall would you believe I found three lamps that my uncle had given me.  Here is one and it fits in perfectly with our new look. 

This is my winter project.  I am hand quilting this lap quilt.  I used mostly solids in the colors of my new room.  I found a quilt online that I loved and sort of copied it.  It was absolutely free pieced!  It is the way I love to work,  so much fun but also very challenging.

Last but definitely not least one day last week my grandson and I were in my sewing room.  He started cutting scraps and putting them on my design wall.  He had a ball! Said it was the funnest afternoon ever!  Can you get better than that? 

I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas.  I hope you all spend time with your friends and family.  We are looking forward to everyone being home even if it is for short time. 

Again thanks to all of you that take the time to read my blog.
