Do you know how much you enrich my heart, blog friends?....A little tear in my eye as I type

If I could hug you in person, I would! I have had so many giggles and smiles and sighs of care as many of you have visited my blog today and CELEBRATED mom and Green Fairy's gifts! I devoted a full day to a wall quilt and was like a little girl giddy that I was reading blog comments and piecing all at the same time. I feel loved and I thank you!

It was our family goal to be in Seattle for Christmas and while things are still in motion, we are basking in Southern Utah sun once again for the holidays. And so in my heart today, I created a piece that I title a Northwest Christmas Tree....Nifty and Miki, I will be there sooner than later so keep my spot at Rebels!


A spin off of the Piece O'Cake Leaves and Scrap branches and trunk in honor of Victoria at BumbleBeans....



I will be honest, it is a psychological challenge for me to play with Roxy when I have oohed and aahed over Green Fairy's quilting on mom's beauty, but...I am who I am, Sam I am....and so this is the back of the quilting so far, kinda fun in a simplistic way, isn't it?


Are you giggling as you see this pic of Porsche and the quilt....How do they do it everytime?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No matter the kittens or the pup...They are so predictable and I laugh each time.

Thank you, Santa, for early gift of a day to quilt! I hope he shared with you too!!!!

Love, Em

Looks good! To be in the Northwest frame of mind, without the COLD is a blessing. Your spot is always open at Rebels!

Oh, I am so jealous of the quilters in Seattle...they will get to see some of my special friends in person - love you, Em, and you, too, Miki! What fun if I could make it out there someday!
Merry Christmas to you, sweet Em! God protect you and yours and bless you in the new year!

Your Mom's quilt is amazing...and so enhanced by Green Fairy's quilting! But your quilting has come on so much...look out Green Fairy! Happy Christmas, Em!
