The children are nestled...

All snug in their beds. And it is almost time for Christmas. I hope that everyone has a wonderful holiday. Enjoy the magic of the season, count your blessings and hug your lived ones.

Merry Christmas to all and best wishes for the coming year!

Quilt Alliance Quilts

Okay, so I woke up early this morning and since I can't get back to sleep, this seems like the best time to get back to posting. And I really wanted to share with you the Quilt Alliance Quilt that I bid on and won!

My quilt is by Gayle Simpson from Thousand Oaks, CA and Coeur d'Alene, ID. It is just the coolest quilt and had some special things on it that I didn't even see when I was bidding on it. A pleasant surprise for sure.

This one was called "All Homes Need Quilts" and has her special vintage chairs in the design.
Wonderful applique.

There are lace curtains at the windows too.

And I wish my picture was a little clearer but the stitching in the window boxes look like flowers!

And the best is the sewing machine in the upstairs window. Perfect! You can see more of Gayle's work on her website at Gayle Simpson Some pretty amazing work.

Now you can try for a quilt of your own by going to Quilt Alliance Quilts  They are all so unique and hard to resist. One of the quilts is over $1,000!
