Something to snuggle with on Christmas night

That's what I'm hoping for anyway. I got this quilt done for Sydney just in the nick of time. It's pretty small (a lap quilt for an adult) but plenty big for her. She picked out the Mickey Mouse snowflake fabric last Spring. I think it was 75% off so I caved pretty easily even though I had no idea what we would do with it. Now, I've managed to use up every last scrap! The entire quilt is from my stash actually. I love being able to do that!

We are leaving tomorrow morning to visit family for Christmas, then returning on Thursday evening to host my family at our house on Friday. It's been a lot of work to get ready, but I'm really excited to have them all here.

I hope that all of you have a very blessed and merry Christmas. It is so easy this time of year to loose focus of the true meaning of this season, but I pray that you all can take a few moments to consider the first Christmas and what it might mean today in your life.

Merry Christmas!

This is my plan for the new year - use up scraps and make easy square quilts. I hope they turn out as lovely as this one. Happy holiday my friend!
