So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen to 2017

Where the heck did 2017 go? 
The older I get, the faster each year passes by. 
I don't like that!

At least my family had a smash-up Christmas celebration to send off the year.
Lots of food, games, laughter, and photos filled the days.
Insanity runs in my family.

Like father, like daughter.
They JUST HAD TO climb that tree! Yikes!

Yesterday I picked up my Sun, Sand, and Sea quilt from Quilted Works.
It looks amazing! I finished putting the binding on today and I'll post it on January 1st.

We're already gearing up for next year's BOM...I'm so excited!

I've taken a stab at making Brimfield blocks (EPP), but I'm so slow at it because of
some stiffness in my hands. It may be next year (as in 2019) before I finish even one!

Can't show this one until January 9th, but the fabric is Boots & Spurs by Riley Blake Designs.

And the blog hop is coming, of course...
