Farewell 2013 - What a Year!

What a year our family has had this year.  It has been a year full of excitement and extreme anxiety, amazing joy and terrible sadness and I think I have had enough and am happy to welcome in a new year.

The most joyful event happened on the 19th December, two weeks earlier than planned.  I would like to introduce you all to our precious little granddaughter, Evie.  She is perfect in every way and we have fallen instantly in love and are totally besotted by her.  She weighed just 2.65kg (5lb 8oz).

 Evie two days old

 Evie sound asleep on her back today

A friend sent me this pic she found on the internet.  I can now show you the whole quilt that I made prior to Evie's arrival.

The back

Today has been a very sad day as we said goodbye to our Grand Doggy Lucy.  She has been Chris & Amy's baby for 7 years and holds a special place in our hearts.  A beautiful loyal companion and friend and we will all miss her terribly.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year with lots of health, wealth and happiness for 2014!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I cannot believe how fast this year has gone and in just a few short weeks, we will be welcoming our first precious little grandchild into our family.  We are on the home stretch now and I CANNOT wait!

I have finished the first quilt, something to take to the hospital to use straight away.

It is hand quilted and I even did a little appliqué on the back.  

I have finished my tulip quilt.  

I have also finished the next frame of Hertfordshire, 48 little hexagons.  I miss doing them now they are all done......

I have also made a little bit more progress on St Neots, finishing all the hexagons.  I think I will tackle the appliqué that runs across the top of the quilt next.

I'm off to CAG tomorrow so I'm sure I will have lots of Show & Tell pics to show next post.  I have started playing with Instagram, I am loving it.  If you want, you can follow me on there.  Just click on the button on my sidebar.

One final thing, I have prepared this post on my iPad using the Blogger app, so fingers crossed it works ok????
