Merry Christmas & Mystery Step 5 & Just Catching Up

Hello!

Merry Christmas!  I know I am a few days late on that greeting but it has been one busy couple of weeks.  First of all I got a nasty cold - so I did not even get my normal overload of cookies made.  But I did manage to get my niece Annas quilt back from the quilter and bound for her for Christmas.  She wanted a queen size and it is on our king size bed here so it is plenty big and it is the quilt I taught in beginning quilting this fall.   She really loves it so I am glad I got it done for her.  She asked for a new quilt about 2 years ago, I just love when they want something that I make, really makes my heart smile!
 



I did finish this UFO - a gal at work wanted to give a quilt to her little neice, and she wanted pink and green, so I had this in my UFO stack,  it needed borders, quilting and binding but I did manage to get it to her on the Friday before Christmas and she was thrilled and I was too -- another UFO done!!
 


Christmas Eve was a little quiet at our house- kinda nice so I was able to get Part 5 done of the Easy Street Mystery.  - I really like the way this quilt is coming together, I have this part totally done and I have part 2 totally done, but the other parts are not completely done, but at least all pieces are cut and I can work on it this weekend when I am off for 4 days!!!
  


And last but not least Poochie and Rudy wanted to wish  everyone in blogland Happy Holidays!  Here is Poochie Christmas morning waiting to see what Santa Paws brought her!!
  

And here is Rudy -- looking cute on his new dog bed with his Santa hat on!   They certainly do have a good life!


I hope you had a nice holiday and are looking forward to the new year, I know I am.  Our Christmas was great we went to our niece Annas and she totally spoiled me, she gave everyone a stocking filled with goodies -- mine had lots of lip gloss, nail files and face and hand creams, little perfumes, it was awesome!  And we had a great day at her house!

Well I better go and see if I can get something done in my sewing room.
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stitches!

Your blocks look like really cute little houses! I hope you are getting over that nasty cold. I hate getting one this time of year. The quilt that you made for you need is really nice! Your furry children are cute too!
