This is a quilt inspired by Kathie Holland. She sure knows how to make the old become new again!
Hi to you all in the new year coming! Once again I am hoping for a year of creativity and good health for us all. I wasn't able to send out a note to each of you last post, I hope you understand...and I'll try to do better!
Larry is slowly improving, but always tired, poor guy. We look for more answers to come in January. I'm trying to keep up with the regular chores! We have always worked together as a team with them, but he really has struggled for a few months (understandable now!) with stamina, so it's been a change for us. (Jan, I know you are living this too, you have my heart.)
Now, let me show you something new in progress, and a finish. Remember this colorful collaboration of Lydia's hand embroidery, and my piecing? We finished it for little Nathaneal, and Lydia and Jeff delivered it this week.

here's the cute little man!
We are attending a friend and co-worker's 50th Wedding Anniversary. She is the Jr. High U.S. History teacher at my school. We've taught together for 20+ years. I kept thinking about the 9 patches that were laying around for a different project, and decided they would do the trick for an extra special quilt for her and Bob.

Inspired by Antique Quilts,
and going back, I remembered this one ...

...which is perfect for a quick to-do! I sewed these squares back in July or else this wouldn't be possible for someone with the earned name Pokey :-}
I didn't tell you when the party is, did I ...?
Stay tuned, and wish me luck!
