I DID IT--

You say you finished that list you published yesterday--
NO--
but I did make a project from start to basically finish since yesterday--
and it was not on the list--forgot to list it!!

My word--or rather my words for 2016 are--
Love and
Laughter--
as many of you know who read this blog know that is the way I have been signing off this month--
I do believe that we all need much more-
Love
in our lives, whether from families, pets, or friends or just blog friends--
and we most certainly need more--
Laughter
in our lives on a daily basis--
I wrote out the letters, myself yesterday and last night stitched them onto the background--
this morning I found a single charm pack and it was just right for this quilt--it is called Avalon--then I quickly stitched it all together and found batting and backing and binding and put it all together--
I did some machine stitching on it instead of my usual hand quilting cause over on www.elmstreetquilts.com you will see that she has a word challenge for January and I only had 2 days left to get it made--so it will be a wall hanging or on the outside door hanging here in the hall way--

I did also get the last block of the Buttermilk Basin bom for last year finished-
will try to remember tomorrow to take a photo of all 12 blocks together--
think I will use flannel for the lattice and borders--but need to go shopping first--

the sun is out today--but I took this photo yesterday during some rain-
I love these large birds--they are soo easy to photograph and I can take their photos from my bedroom window!!

well--there is more on that list for me to work on--
so better get going--
love and laughter, di
