Merry Christmas

Look at the lovely Christmas greeting I received from Sheila of Sheila's Quilt World, my quilty blogging friend. A quilted postcard.  The image  is from a vintage postcard that belonged to a family member from 50+ years ago.  If you would like to read about Sheila's postcards you can visit here.   I just love them.  Her post inspired me to get out my old postcards that belonged to my Grandfather when he was a little boy. Some are dated 1908.  I tried to make one but got discouraged as I couldnt get the edging to look nice.  I was really in a rush that day and I just need to try again except take my time. Next Christmas.
 Merry Christmas Sheila and thanks so much.

Another year is ending... I still have a  pile of UFOs, I have acquired lots more books and magazines and patterns, I have learned new techniques, my quilting tool collection has grown,  my computer skills have increased,  I have met new friends, I have lots of new fabric and I have diminished my scrap collection somewhat. 
Am I further ahead than this time last year?....not a whole lot....but I am happy  and healthy and have a wonderful family who loves me....I have all I need. 

Merry Christmas everyone, especially to all my blog followers.  I appreciate all the lovely comments and feedback that I receive.  Quilty Blogland is an amazing place to be.
