Well, the plumbing problems at the office have been taken care of and we're all feeling a little fuller from eating Thanksgiving dinner with our friends and family.
I wanted to give everyone an update on the Rosie's Charm quilt that appeared in Easy Quilts, Fall 2009. It was named in honor of my mother-in-law Rosie Gaworski. On the 21st of November she turned 85 years young and I finally gave her the quilt that was named in her honor. She knew that the quilt had been named in her honor, but she never imagined she was going to actually receive the quilt as a gift. She broke down in tears when we presented it to her. She has done so much for all of us over the years and I was glad that we could finally do something like this for her. I had planned to show photos of her with her quilt, but alas I didn't remember the camera until we were halfway to her house. If you look very closely at the photo of the quilt you will see a photo of her when she was 3 years of age setting on the table.
Now I've just got to get to work on those quilts that need to be finished in time for Christmas. If you stop into the shop here in Winterset, you might see me working at the long-arm quilting machine trying to get all the quilts finished in time.
