Put a Little Love Blog Hop coming soon!

I've geared up for the Put a Little Love in Your Quilt blog hop, and am ready to go when it's my day! 
The schedule is below...

I made some coasters for my sister-in-law Sandra whom we will be visiting very soon. Several years ago I made her 8 placemats. These sort of match--the print fabric is the same, but I had to try to match closely the other 3 colors out of my stash since I had no more left of the original fabrics. I hope they are pretty close...

I've been working on a few jigsaw puzzles in the evenings; here's one. It's only 500 pieces. I had to get warmed up on puzzling--when we go to my brother Alan's place, there will be a puzzle waiting for us to do.

Here's the schedule for Put a Little Love hop:

February 5

February 6

Just Sew Quilter (that's me)

February 7

February 8

Just Let Me Quilt (our fabulous host Carol S.)

This should be a lot of fun! I haven't done a hop for a long time.

Blog Hop and WIP

We had a lovely family Christmas Dec. 27 - 30 at our daughter's in St. Louis. Here is the whole bunch, minus Natalie who took the pic.

I'm participating in this hop--have a heart on one thing (see photo below) so far.

My goal for this week is to finish this wall hanging. I love nativities, and I love this pattern so much, I bought it twice (yikes)! There's something to be said for keeping a list of you already own... Anyway, the only applique left to do is all the black (lots of little things), and then I will be able to put it together and quilt it. The end is in sight! Yoohoo!
Happy 2018--may it truly be a prosperous year!
