My daughter Timmi has asked me to make another Disney "CARS" quilt for Harley. She wants to put both boys in the same room and make the other bedroom into a playroom. They will be getting new bunk beds. I guess the boys have too many toys. Now how can that be? hahaha
It will be just like the one I made Dylan back in May .
Tomorrow I will be going over to Amy's and quilt the top.
After New Years I will finish the binding and make some more pillow cases.
I do plan on 2010 to be better with my blog, sewing more and catching up with ole friends.
Here is a quick picture of Harley's quilt top.

Almost Ready

Almost ready for Christmas. All the presents are bought and wrapped, decorations are done, and tonight Tim and I baked apricot kieflies. It is his mother's Hungarian recipe. It isn't Christmas without them, reminds me of home in Pittsburgh. My daughters insist we make them. I have 3 big platters full. Some are pretty; but they all taste good.

I have been sick since Thanksgiving, getting one thing after another. It has really been the pits.
Today I received a surprise in the mail from my dear friend Ruthie in Israel.
This really put a smile on my face as I haven't talked to her in awhile with me not feeling up to par for awhile.
Thanks Ruthie you are truly a gem. In the package was this adorable snowman she made along with a cheerful red Christmas fat quarter, a ginger bread house ornament she also made.
lots of trim, a lovely decorative pin,needle holder , and tea.
