We had a wonderful time on Christmas Eve. One of the best things was the kiddos playing together. I know it’s not Thursday, my usual day for sharing Dominic photos. These are from Christmas Eve though.
On the left, is the adoring look Dominic gave his older cousin, Jaxson. Jaxson was greeting D each time he made his round around the island. Oh how the giggles were flowing. In the photo on the right, D was ‘helping’ Lily pack up her gifts. The bag makes a wonderful rattling sound! Lastly, and not captured with a photo, is D being wrapped in Miki’s arms and her new blanket. Just before he was released to continue his rounds, a kiss was planted on top of his head. That made it all the more special. Why didn’t I get a picture of that?!! I was enjoying it too much . . . ~smile~
Sue and I drove to my sister’s house in Woodstock, IL. It was a rainy day, but the company inside was cheery. Her Christmas tree was lit, the lasagna-like dish she served was smelling good in the oven, and the conversation was fun. We don’t see her or my brother-in-law often enough, plus we had the added benefit of my niece joining us. She’s just six months younger than I. It must have been a hoot when my mom and sister were both pregnant at the same time. It’s nice to gather together with our peeps at this time of the year. ♥ ♥
I am beyond thrilled to say that our Jigsaw baby quilt is complete. All the details were shared last Friday, but here’s a photo to share.
This month we chose to finish quilting and binding our Jigsaw baby quilt. As shown just above, the quilt is all finished and bound. That’s a whole year of successfully completing the OMG goals.
We threw a Dr. Seuss together as a DrEAMi moment. First of all, the blocks were cut out Friday night by Sue. After that, I put the quilt top together on Saturday, and Sunday it was quilted. Finally, just the binding was left before it was going up for sale in our Etsy shop.
To-Do December 31st through January 6th
- Start a new quilt for Sue to hand quilt
- Make January Bee Hive blocks for Jan
- Finish off the binding for the impromptu Dr. Seuss quilt
