Happy New Year 2019! And, what I have been up to.

Starting with a brief summery of my doings.....
this summer I made a little quilt to fit in my table frame.

Max, one of our grandsons, graduated this spring. I made a quilt for him. We have six grandchildren, five have graduated from high school and two from collage. Three are in collage now and a one more with graduate from high school this year!

We planted a Herb garden this spring

 with great success!

 Created a few more small quilts 

....for a table topper frame.

Early in October we celebrated our 50 year stay at Cedar Shores on Long Lake, Park Rapids, Minnesota. We always a wonderful time!   

This is a baby chicken feeder. I Found it at the "Fleet Farm" in Park Rapids, Minnesota. Had fun creating a pin cushion and supply holder. Sewed a little while we were there :).

I was involved in a mini quilt swap this fall. "Diana" was my partner and made this for me!

Meet "Amy", 
and Miss Emile...you know who they are waiting for :)! 

 Made many "Skinny Santa's" ! 

I was a vendor at the Central Presbyterian Church Holiday 2018 and have been for 9 years!

Finished my first project for 2019! 

 So there you have it, I know I should post more on my blog ....I do post on "Facebook" and keep in touch with some of you who are there ....seems as though it's a little easier than my blog! I have missed all of  you...but I do read and view your posts. They are always so inspiring!

Hug's, Carolyn
