Christmas 2013

      On Sunday, I had friends come for dinner. Monday and Tuesday were spent doing some last minute odds and ends, baking, and furiously trying to finish a Christmas quilt for my cousin Kristin's family.  I spent Christmas Eve at her home and brought the finished quilt!!! In the rush to get it completed, I didn't get a chance to take any good photos of it, but these

 quick shots taken that night will give you an idea of what it looks like. The colors are off in the photos,  but it really is quite cute. My cousin who is also my godchild pointed out that I had also made a paper doll themed quilt nearly eight years ago when her oldest daughter was born. 
     Christmas was spent at my cousin Linda's home. It was great fun to celebrate Christmas with my seven little cousins and their parents. 
     Today I decided to just relax and go see a movie. Philomena was playing at the Loring in Hingham. The film stars Judy Dench and, as always, she was wonderful. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. Do be sure to bring tissues. Perhaps the saddest and most shocking thing is that this story was based on truth. I would rate this movie an "A."


  1. so glad you got to spend time with family ... and have fun x

  2. Janice, that is a beautiful and personal gift to present to your cousin's family. You do very fine work that appears to be heirloom quality.
    I am pleased to have gotten to know you in 2013 and I wish you a happy new year. I'll be seeing you!

  3. Love it! I'm sure it was a hit with the girls :)
