Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Love the new job, although it is kicking my butt.  I am getting too old to learn new things LOL.  I started this post on December 23rd and here we are January 13th.  Jeez, where does time go?  My intent was to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and then the battery on my laptop died and here we are.

Below is the Holiday display (Just took down) that I was going to show you all


Sort of an odd-looking block.  I made it from my sister Kellie’s clothes.  I have been looking at the bags of clothes I have that were hers and could not bear cut into them.

I finally did it.  I have four bags and just opened one.  My intent is to make these blocks highlighting something that I remember her wearing.  I hope to put notes in the jeans pockets for my niece and nephew.

Still very hard.  I actually kept a shirt for myself.  I like to wear it because it is hers.  I think these quilts will take a long time to complete.  I will get there.

I miss you all.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

  1. Hi Lori! Happy New Year to you as well. Gosh, I just adore your village. I didn’t put mine up this year for the first time in ages and I missed it. The newly one baby girl is just too inquisitive and it would have been right at her level, so I skipped the train and village. The Obedience Training and Shelter are so cool, and your quilt shop looks like we should pop in for some new fabrics. How wonderful that you are loving your new job. I don’t believe you – I think you are loving learning something new as well! I can’t even imagine cutting up your sister’s clothes yet. I would be crying my eyes out just looking at one item in the bag. You just be kind to yourself and take your time. There’s no rush! That jean pocket block is so darn cute – and what a cute idea to tuck a note in the pocket. {{Hugs}} a bunch for you – I missed you! ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. What a awesome quilt project you have undertaken with your sisters clothing. I must add, I think it will be an incredibly healing journey for you and an amazing legacy for your niece and nephew. A true heirloom! Let the tears flow 🙂 That is some Christmas village you have – show stopper! Glad to read you’re enjoying the new job too. Here’s to a wonderful new year ~ Sharon
