Goodbye 2008!

Where has the time gone? Where have I been ? Inquiring minds, like RED , Libby , and Mrs. Quilt Hollow , want to know!

Well for the past 3 months, I have been on many trips! So many, that it is nice to finally be home for a little while!

My last trip was to the Grand Canyon. We took "the little person" to the Polar Express. If you live in the area or have the ability to travel there, this is an amazing experience for kids! I think that we might have to make this an annual trip.

We started here:

and then we rode the Polar Express up to the rim of the Grand Canyon. We stopped at the "North Pole" where we picked up Santa. He rode back with us and handed out presents to all of the children.The next day we drove in our car along the famous Route 66

and we went here.

Unfortunately we didn't pass any quilt stores along the way. Mrs. Nook consulted the Quilter's Travel Companion for me, but I guess that quilt stores aren't in demand around the Grand Canyon.
Oh well. I did manage to make more yo-yos and
one lonely hexagon flower!

(I told you that I am going to be a grandmother by the time that I finish this quilt!)

The New Year is upon us and it is out with the old and in with the new! I want to wish all of my "quilt buddies" a prosperous New Year! I will certainly need one!
(Red , we will paint the New Year RED!! )
Until Next Time.....Happy Quilting!

No Peeking!

Just a reminder to everyone ,(especially RED), NO PEEKING! Santa is watching you!

Merry Christmas to all of my blog friends (both near and far)! May you be surrounded by the love of your family and friends!

Until Next Time....Happy Quilting!

A Little Holiday Cheer

Since I am on the road, I thought that I would post a few photos from home. Most of my decorations are RED of course. I have been collecting Pottery Barn ornaments for some time now and I finally have enough to cover my entire tree.
So here is a little "BLING" from my house to all of the other fans of red( like Carla , Libby, and RED) !

Well, I'm off to make more yo-yos while I am sitting in the hotel room!

Until Next Time.....Happy Quilting!

While I Was Away

While I was away, I made these:

While I was at her house, Mrs. Nook let me borrow her yo-yo maker. Yo-yos are so much fun to make once you get the hang of it! This time I took the yo-yo maker with me on my trip and I made all of these. The bag is full of red and white yo-yos, which I thought would be a cute Christmas accent. I know that RED would approve!

I am now off on my last trip of the year and I will probably make more yo-yos! What else is there to do while you are sitting in the hotel room after the "little person" has gone to sleep? I could read blogs or I could catch up on my hexagons but Iwould rather make yo-yos!
Until Next Time...Happy Quilting!

PS- I promise to give you back your yo-yo maker Mrs. Nook, but they are so addictive!
