Quilt top for grand niece

Just finished this top this a.m. for older sister, who is flying to Sweden next week to spend the holidays with her son, daughter in law and grandbaby! She asked me to make a quilt and here it is. It is a Patrick Lose design, Hugs and Kisses, I think it is so cute. She stated she wanted all purple, egg plant but you need so many more colors. I think there is enough purple in this quilt don't you. I love the way it turned out. I will go down to basement a little later and pin and then bring up and quilt. Tomorrow will bind by machine and pack up and send off. She should have by Saturday. Yipee

Oh Christmas Tree

Last Friday, the 29th, I tromped out behind the orchard and found this pretty little tree. I had brought Mark's sawzal and away I went...and I drug this baby plus having to carry the saw back to the house. Drag marks in the snow all the way up to the porch. Luckily it snowed like crazy last night, at least 6" so that covered that up :-) Mark put in stand and he always puts on the lights and then I did the rest. I think it turned out real pretty. I just love a Christmas tree, its a Spruce or they call them Jack Pines up here. Anyway, I love it!!!!

Dinner last night

Two onions and my Purvian Purple and Rose Finn Apple fingerling potatoes with frest ground pepper, a tough of soy sauce and andouli sausage. Makes the kitchen smell so good.

Here it is all plated up and ready to eat :-)
