Gracie's Christmas Gift...

I wanted to be sure to share one last item before this year is over.  This is the quilt my 9-year old niece made for her mother for Christmas.

Gracie's Quilt
She got the quilt kit for her birthday this year and has worked on it with a little help from her Grandma and myself.  However, she did pretty much all of the sewing herself!

When she came to visit several weeks ago, she asked if I would quilt it for her so she could give it to her mom for Christmas.  Her and grandma had picked out a pretty lime green fleece for the backing (her mom's favorite color).  I did a simple large stipple on it and sewed on the binding.

All of the fabrics on the front are flannels so the quilt is incredibly soft and warm.  It's only 42" x 51", but should be a nice size to cover a lap while watching TV.  My sister was very surprised and pleased when she opened it on Christmas Day.

I took this picture of Jack the other day and I'm amazed at how long her whiskers look.  It's not something I usually notice on her...

However you choose to celebrate tonight, I want to wish you all a Happy New Year!  (I'll be in bed asleep long before the bell tolls...)
