Happy New Year!

I hope your holidays were as bright and filled with love as ours. I am still here.. This house was filled with relatives from distance and kids.

The kitchen was always open and the laundry was constantly running. I said goodbyes to all the kids at once. My heart is full. This was our grandson's first visit, first plane ride. First Christmas together for now seven of us!

 Kai did not mind posing for camera for me at all.

Younger two kids went home as soon as I took our oldest son and his family to the airport this morning.

The house is empty and it has opened up space for our quilt-along. If you missed it, read all about it here.

Those of you who are interested in the quilt along, I have received and read every single comment.   I hope you are patient. I will come back with quilt # one next week.

A lot of you have ordered the book or already have it in your home. I hope you have had a chance to go through it.

Couple of reminders before I end this reminder post - (couldn't help myself)

This is going to be a stress free experience.

Those of you who are anonymous, please send me an email so I have your email addresses to send you an invite  to post on a community blog.

If you do not have Instagram or a blog? No worries, just have fun. This project is designed to get to know other like-minded people and build a community of quilters who appreciate quirky quilts just like the man who brought them to us.

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. Kai is absolutely adorable! Glad you had a houseful and your heart is full as a result.

  2. What fun to spend the holidays with Kai. He's adorable.

  3. What a lovely family photo! The baby is so cute! I am excited to get started on the first project.

  4. I’m awaiting your command! Wow...that is contrary to what I think of from you! But awaiting your leadership! I’ve looked thru the book and am definitely inspired by a few of the quilts. I just started reading the book ‘World Enough & Time’, about slowing down and making time for creativity. Do you think I can pick up some pointers???

  5. wonderful family and movie star baby....xo

  6. My heart melts every time I see a photo of Kai. He is just adorable. What a wonderful time you had with all the kids there! I'm looking forward to seeing the quilts inspired by U&U. When there is a button, I'll post one I made a few years ago, if that fits with the spirit of the quilt-along. If not, I'll understand. Happy new year!

  7. That's a great family photo!
    Sweet grandson too, fun time for you I'm sure.
    The challenge is exciting, thank you.


I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!
