So Toasty And Warm...

I know, I know... It's been a while.
There were some holidays in there, and lots of work days, and some random laying on the couch in a semi-coma.
You know, the usual.
But I'm on vacation this week, so I've become reacquainted with the lovely Mr Pfaffey. He's so forgiving. Just takes me right back, no questions asked.
So what have I been working on?
Well, I got the kid's quilt back from the fabulous quilter...
It's gorgeous, right? They seemed to like it. They ooo'ed and ahh'ed appropriately.
Here's the back...
And some close ups of the quilting..
So that was good. We drove over and gave it to them on Christmas Eve and had a really, really nice time. I love those kids.
And then lately, I've been working on a t-shirt quilt for a friend.
Ok, it's for the Sweet Baboo's ex-wife, but people seem to think that's in the "strange" column, so I was trying to soften it for you.
She's a delightful woman, and we all go camping with shared friends each summer.
I think it's healthy.
So anyhoo, her mother passed away a month or two ago, and I said I would make her a memorial quilt. So I got that finished today.
Sort of finished. Are they ever really finished?
I haven't decided on a border or not yet.
Border of the same print? then the nine - patches seem to float.
That could be nice.
Little skinny black border, followed by the same print?
inch and a half black followed by the print?
Ahh... no. Ruled THAT one out.
What do you think? Any opinions? Maybe no border at all?
Next up is a baby quilt for a co-worker who's having a boy. I'm thinking zig-zag.
Well I hope you all have a wonderful New Year's! We've got a party to go to, but there's been a lot of this lately...
And this...
Soooooooo... we'll see if I can get dressed and out of the house.
Anything could happen.

OMG! How did I miss you yesterday???
Okay, let's start with the Kid Quilt. I just love it! So clean, so cute. Who wouldn't oooh & aaah over that? Really?
The ex's memorial quilt is awesome! Just another example of what a wonderful person you are, not to mention, talented! I like the last picture of it with the black border, then the print. Yeah!
I don't know, I think you may be crazy for going out, away from that mesmerizing fire and that sweet pup, but, hey, it is new year's eve, right???
We will definitely be seeing you in the new year, my wonderful friend!
