Flannel Love

Isn't winter warmer and cozier
with warm winter flannel?

I love flannel quilts!

So I am very excited to see all the cozy quiltiness 
in the the New Year


You do not have to use flannel in your project.

Marian, our blog hop sponsor extraordinaire, 
requires that
"must include some type of fabric that is not cotton. 
Flannel, wool, corduroy, tweed, etc"
for your cozy project.

I hope to see you sewing and following along with us!

I have not started my project yet, as I am finishing up some other commitments and holiday sewing, but I have my project planned and have time to sew in January.

Happy Sewing!

Christmas Comes Early

Everly and her new quilt!

We have returned home to the chilly, snowy northeast.

We had a wonderful time in the chilly, rainy northwest.

While we were there Christmas came early 
and my daughter set up her Christmas tree for
 "Grammy and Grampy Christmas."

Everly loves the tree and the ornaments.

Although most people think she is at least four years old
and she wears a little girl size five, Everly is just very tall for her age.  
She is only two and a half and still needs to be encouraged 
and helped to unwrap presents.

We set the quilty gift before her ... 

... and Lamby danced on it ...

... Mater took a drive on it ...

the she wandered away and we had to follow her with the package ...

... and give the wrapping a rip ...

The colorful blocks did get her attention ... for a minute maybe ...

then she wandered away again ...

... so my daughter unwrapped a little more and unrolled the quilt and Mater caught her eye ...

"Tow Mater" is her favorite character ...

... so the panel fabric pleased her very much ...

... Everly's faithful friend Sierra loves quilts, too ...

Mater and Lighting McQueen had to explore the quilt, too ...

...and had fun driving around on it.

Everly sleeps cuddle in a Grammy quilt every nap and night
so I know she loves her quilts.
She sleeps under this one every night now. 

Everly also drove her cars around the diecast cars garage we gave her.

Everly had fun with her new toys ...

The whole family got into the assembly act ... 

that Grammy and Grampy gave Everly for her cars

"vroom ... vroom!" 

Grammy and Grampy also got her a bigger car ...

... that she could drive ...

... foot powered ...

An Everly smile is worth a thousand words ... :-)

On Grammy and Grampy Christmas night 
the rain held off and 
we enjoyed the

We had a wonderful time visiting with Everly, Marissa and Matt.

Now we are Home Sweet Home.

Time to get my own home ready for Christmas and
catch up with some quilty commitments.

Have a happy holiday season!
