The Christmas decorations are tucked away for another year. It’s always a little saddening to me, but the kids and I made it a family project so it didn’t take long and we’re on to a new year.
I just wasn’t ready to put away my ornament from Libby, so it is residing on my kitchen table for a while longer. I simple reminder of Quilts past—Quilts in the Future…. And it reminds me never to give up on my scraps.

I have binding to attach today as I Finished machine quilting My Saltboxes in the Corner Quilt.

Tomorrow I turn back into a pumpkin as I head back to work. I always dream of getting more done, but I couldn’t have asked for a better week off. I had balance – a little of everything: quilting, reading, time outside, and inside, time with my college kids who have one more week home.

After church today, I’ve got a couple of project Chelsey has asked for--- I’ll take pictures--- and I am crossing my fingers that maybe I can get another quilt on the frame so that I can quilt a little each night this week.

Gratitudes—
My gingham silverware
My washer and dryer—who wants to deal with laundry when it’s 20 degrees
Definitely Cashews

I haven't put away my little ornament from Libby either. It hangs on my coat closet doorknob.

I love that old fashioned red coffee pot in your photo! I have a big blue one that we use to use for picnics to heat up water but we no longer use it - I think after seeing your photo I am going to go find it and bring it into my sewing room for a decoration and when spring comes I can put some flowers in it.

It must be so nice to have help putting Christmas away. It takes me about 3 days to do it. I will start that tomorrow when my grandchildren are back in school.

Great quilting! Glad you enjoyed your time off with the kids. I always hated the thought of returning to work on Monday after a nice holiday!

I am loving that quilt! So glad you enjoyed doing it. It sure is pretty! It is on my "someday" list....

Libby said...

Oh my - that two weeks went by fast! I have one little ornament that is staying out, too. It was an accident - but now I'm glad to have a little Christmas with me all year long *s*

Karen said...

I don't blame you for leaving your little wreath out. It's adorable and your red red enamel ware, L-O-V-E that!

anne bebbington said...

Lovely little wreath - looks like squares of woollen fabric - just so sweet

20 degrees, really. Brrrr. Have a safe drive in to work.

Love your red enamelware and the little wreath - is is pieces of wool or regular fabric or both? Definitely something to leave out, whatever it's made of. Your quilting looks really good. Be sure to show us the finished quilt after you finish with the binding.
I have some angel ornaments made of old quilts that I leave on the bookcase all year and just put them on the coffeetable for Christmas so they get more attention.
Happy New Year!

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog and giving me such a great idea! I think that I am going to make the bags and put the seeds in them!

Love your saltbox quilt!

Don't work too hard today!

Oh, the saltbox quilt is just wonderful. I am wondering what pattern it is too. Great job.

Love your quilt and especially the quilting!

ForestJane said...

Nice quilting!

Are you frozen yet?

Susan said...

That looks like a great quilt. I'll have to go back and see if you showed the whole thing before. If you didn't, I'd love to see it.

Looks like you might be getting some Valentine decorations ready.
