I like Thursday: December 27, 2018

Good Morning!  Today I'm glad Christmas is over!
I like how my kids loved their quilt for Christmas!
Pete and Jess were really sweet!  They came on Sunday because Pete and had to work on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day.

The grandkids and their quilts:

I knew my grandies wouldn't be as enthused about getting a quilt.  They much preferred those hover balls I got them...

Especially my big guy Nik (their Dad).  Surprisingly our dogs weren't so interested in the balls bopping through the air.  But their puppy apparently went crazy for the balls (yeh, I got them a bunch of them).

Today this one is going to the groomer for a spa day.  I found a fragrance free shampoo and that will help my allergies.

I finished this quilt two weeks ago and forgot to post it:
It's an Ami Simms pattern called "Dog Yeared". I bought and began to sew this many years ago.  I don't think the pattern is even available anymore but I'm happy with it.  I like binding quilts in the winter time.  By fall, I usually have a stack to do and it is such a nice comforting (and warm!) thing to do during wintery evenings.

Well I'm off to make phone calls this morning.  I need to call the doctor for the next step in back recovery, physical therapy.  I'm much improved but not well enough to take a walk yet (so annoying).  Hopefully the PT will take me the rest of the way on recovery.

Have a great week!

Hi you...your wonderful quilts in new homes! Family get togethers are the best times. Never heard of hover balls...will have to check that out.
Good luck with the doctor's appointment. Do hope you keep on healing and feeling better.

Dog Yeared is beyond cute!!! What technique did you use for GFG?

All of your quilts are just beautiful! I'm sure those grands will enjoy snuggling under them and get a lot of use from their gifts when they are home with them! The hover balls sound pretty cool, too. I'm sending my best positive thoughts for that physical therapy to help your back!

it's not easy to enjoy lots of people and hubbub when your back is unstable... the flower garden quilt is spectacular and those snitch balls are too cute. Wish I'd seen them, where'd you find them?

They all looked like they loved their quilts. Very cool hover balls as well. So fun! I need to keep an eye out for something like that for next year. Hope you have a wonderful and very relaxing weekend!

That's a darling photo of the kids in love with their quilt. :-)

Hover balls? Where in the world did you get those? My grandson would go crazy. Heck, the adult boys would, too. Beautiful quilts!
Happy new Year.
