 Also got some yummy chocolate and ribbons, clips and a postcard and key-chain.  I really like everything and it was so worth the wait for it being a tad late.
I had Cheryll to make for this year and since she said she got the package I can show you what I made her. Also added a heart box of chocolates. I hope she liked everything.

Granddaughter day!

Isabella and Me
 I spent yesterday at my MIL's house. While Hubby and Son did MIL's bushes I got to play with the grandbabies. Isabella is walking now and sure a cutie pie. She can feed herself and loves to play and show me things.
Carly and Me
I also got to play with Carly a bit she loves having her tummy tickled and has the cutest laugh and smile. She fell asleep while feed her her lunch. I had a wonderful day but was really tired when I got home. I forgot what running around after a toddler was like lol.

Happy New YEAR!

clue 1
Happy New Year everyone! I'm working on the Quiltbug.com NYE/D mystery  you can find it at this link. I'm actually having fun sewing today and the bit I got done last night.
clue 1 block 4
 These are the fabrics I'm using for it this year, it has a panel so this will be different.
New Year day mystery fabric
 There is another NYD mystery you can do also at Merry Mayhem  I'm saving the clues  to it.
I'm almost done with the month of  January 2016 temp/sky blanket part not sure if I want to keep going or what on this yet. it is going to be huge. I think it will take 2 years to get it done because of the stitch-pattern I started with. So if I do con't with it then it will be a work on in-between other stuff project. At least I'm done writing down the temps and sky colors
2016 temp/sky blanket
 I so liked the cup cosy I had on my ugly one during Christmas that I'm making another one for winter I'm a bit further along than the picture and I will use whit buttons on it.

 Here is the one from Xmas I made last in 2015.

 I'm also working on some Plastic canvas things this year. I missed doing them. I'm making animal faces on squares then going to make a box for them so when grands come see me I can help them learn there animals
Another thing I'm doing is the  Elk Studio's 2017 Make it for Me  you can find the link here, it will also be on the side bar for the month of January.
