Pictures from our travels

We had a great Thanksgiving, got to see family and friends and had good food. I have caught up on the laundry, made up with the cats, and now it's back to work tomorrow. But first, here are some pictures of the quilts I made for Christmas gifts this year. Jim's oldest sister and her husband received this one:
Justice didn't wish to be photographed. This is the back of the quilt, Chris at the Quilted Moose did a musical note pattern.

Next, Jim's second sister and her husband recevied this one:

Gorby has taken over as inspector, Justice was tired after the first quilt. The picture of the back didn't turn out, but it was a floral done in yellow thread. Of course by Chris at the Moose.
Last but not least, Jim's brother and his wife received this one:

All blues. I love blue. The quilts are all queen sized, and I am very glad to have them finished and delivered!

Here are the others:

The last one is a mini that Sandy did. It was alot of fun, using novelty fabrics and they didn't take long at all. Lots of long seams.

Yes, Thank Goodness It's Thursday. That means one more day to get up early this week, and tomorrow and Saturday are both hockey nights. YEAH! The Lakers are playing Bowling Green, OH this weekend, and I am hoping for 2 wins! Ialso have a quilt class at the Moose this weekend, I am making a wallhanging for the guest room.
It was warm enough last night to sleep with the window open, but this weekend we're supposed to get nasty weather. Winter is just around the corner. I am prepared. With yarn and books, I am ready.

Halloween, quilting, and the flu shot

So Halloween has come and gone, and here is my wonderful husband dressed for work.

Pretty sexy, huh? What's not to love. :-) I dressed for work in my Packer's pj pants, jersey and sprayed my hair green. I love green hair, what could be better? Alas, no pics of me.

Today I woke up with this:

That would be my arm after getting a flu shot. I didn't have this reaction last year, but the red area is actually hot, it feels very strange to have just the one spot that hot. A bit sore, but I should be good as new in a few days.

Had quilting at the shop today, and I arrived to find Judy's granddaughter there. She's 3 1/2 months old. A bit drooly, but I could see in her eyes that she appreciated the bolts of fabric.

Ahhhh a future quilter has been born.
