I dreamt a dream and so.....I played for 15 minutes!

Christmas was a time of celebrating in my home and I am still making my yummy noises and smiling as I recant memories of the past week. Favorites include the candlelight ceremony at the Christmas Eve service, Porsche anxious with all of our hooting and hollering over the incredible Seahawks Sunday night game and family time of games, laughter, pranks and moments of quiet and tears of humility for my blessings. Amazingly....this year was a year of fewer gifts and yet as I always say, "This was the best one yet......" I dreamt that I was piecing with Victoria and a couple of other women in New York and then awoke with the desire to choose a quilt from the 15 Minutes Play of Victoria's....below is my interp of my fav of hers, the charcoal gray with made fabric insets...Mod Style. I LOVE HER BOOK!!!!!!!!
This made fabric rainbow is a celebration for my friend who is having a birthday this week. Seemed like a young and whimsy idea to portray her as the Gold at the End of the Rainbow......she is my gem of a friend since moving here and spending many many soccer games together. Ever wished you could swing from a rainbow and watch the world below wonder at the miracle of prisms in rain?
And a treasure for my Chirstmas......Mom gifted me this quilt and I was taken aback with surprise!!!!! It is a favorite of mine that she has created and a special time in our lives when she pieced this. Most of the tiny scraps are from my stash. She created it while staying with me and Noah as Sean worked in Seattle last fall and as we were making the decision to start a new chapter in our lives.......How ironic that I would be gifted it our first Christmas in the Northwest! And through all of the joy of this season, my heart has missed Harley Dog whose dying anniversary was this Christmas season and the homesickness that often ailed my soul as I missed our dear friends and family in Utah. Life can be so bittersweet! Love, Em
