The Monkey Boys Grew And Grew And The Pillow Disappeared

Way back in 2012 I made a Christmas pillow in the Holiday Lane Blog Hop.
It's a free pattern by Jillily Studio that is easy and so adorable.

There were only a few Monkey Boys to rest their heads on the pillow in 2012.

And then the Monkey Boy numbers grew, and grew, and grew until the pillow disappeared
beneath them! Time has flown by and these boys melt my heart no matter what they do.

Monkey Baby obviously doesn't understand the concept of "pretend to sleep."
I'm so grateful my daughter took these photos and sent them to me.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

A Glance Into What Was Happening In 2018 At Just Let Me Quilt

It's been a busy year here at Just Let Me Quilt with lots and lots of sewing, BOM's, and blog hops.
Sometimes it's eye-opening when I put all my projects in one!
Here's a little round-up of what I did in 2018.

I hosted six blog hops this year.

Put A Little Love In Your Quilt

I sewed a lot of things for blog tours, blog hops, row alongs, and gifts!

Whew! That was a lot of sewing!

I also designed and sewed blocks for Sew Incredibly Crazy's 2018 "It's A Wild Life" BOM
Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy just released her new block.
I need to get busy sewing it and putting all those blocks together into a quilt!

2019 is already rolling with commitments, deadlines, designing, and sewing.
Fun times ahead!

I can't wait to see what you make next year...I love all the inspiration you give me!
