Jingle Bells...

 Look what is next up on my quilt list! I'm having my doubts I'll get it done before the end of the year, but if I can start on it I will be happy.
I made a couple of these primitive hearts for a hostess gift.....

and I liked them so much I had to make a few for myself. I'll hang them on the tree when we get one.

 My daughter is coming tonight and I hoped to make the room cheery for her visit.
Porter the dog gave it the thumbs up!! Then I promptly kicked him out!

  1. Love your red and white quilt! I have full confidence you can get it done by end of year !!

    Those are sweet ornaments too. I have ornaments like that all over the Christmas tree. They're the best kind :)

    Love your daughter's room and I am sure she will find it very cozy. And what a great looking dog! Gotta love our furry friends :)

    Merry Christmas,
    Sue

  18. the red and white quilt is great-if you don't get it done at least you're on your way! Poor dog he's probably just as excited about your daughter's visit and wants the bed to be warm and comfy! --I'm sure that's why my dogs are always on my daughter's bed.
    enjoy the visit!

  27. Beautiful red and white quilt. Very sweet hearts. Fun to have your daughter coming. This is the first year that I have had anyone "coming home" for Christmas. In the past when someone was away at Christmas they were too far away to come home. New experience for me getting a room ready.
