Merry christmas

Twas a week or so before christmas and the gibneys were ready... bound for alberta with a car packed to the brim ...the grandchildren excited for christmas to begin. Santa and concerts and playschool parties to see, would keep rocky and I bouncing from family tree to family tree. The joy in the hearts of our grandchildren were many and we could see in their faces that christmas would be Merry.  Hows that for a little Dr. Suess?  And oh how it was!

We had such a wondberful time with our family this past two weeks and we will treasure all the christmas festivities that we were able to share with them. Feeling truly blessed as these holidays come to an endwe will be heading home and then preparing for out flight back to arizona. I would just like to take this time to wish all other fellow bloggers a very merry christmas and many wonderful blessings in 2015


Our christmas gift to one an other.... from a fifth wheel to a park model. Yeah! I must say we are quite excited about this, but we mustn't get too terribly excited. We will not take posession until first week of april. Heading back down to phoenix on january 4th.  But before that I will be teaching a schnibbles class to our quilt quild, must say im wishing I was taking the class not teaching. A teacher, I'm not!

For those of you who dont know my maiden name is "Harvey"....and of course I was thrilled when Carrie designed this quilt.  It's been a crazy busy fall but I do intend to get this October scnibbles done. As you can see I will definately be late with it, but like the saying goes, "better late than never", right?  Well step 1 is complete! I decided today that because Miss Carrie has designed this quilt and my Zen collection was a gift from her it would be very fitting to use this fabric. Very excited even if I'm only at step 1. Hopefully it wont be too terribly long before I post some progress

Bless the flowers and the birds and the wee ones we love....

Flowers whisper beauty to the world and birds sing because they have a song.....                                                                                                                    

Time to do some building with Papa...Have to have a place for those birdies to sleep when they come to Nanny and Papa's too.

then  a little break and time to watch the football game...

I seen an idea on pinterest when you have to remove a tree from your yard...Keep the trunk about 6 feet high and make a little condo of birdhouses and place on top of it. We are quite excited as you can imagine the children are too, to see what birds will come and nest in our little houses...

FAMILY...a gathering of those we love,hand chosen from above

Granddaughters....bringing such joy y

Its schnibble time again

What a great way to start off another new year of schnibbling..... Carries cute little whit takes the cake. I love that three options were made available from this tiny cute little pattern. I am quite sure I will be doing the other 2 as I so love flying geese.
Was a little afraid of not being able to complete it in time as I made a trip to ontario for 10 days and then off to alberta for 8 days....had a great time and will share some pictures of my trip soon

Watch out now....I'm on a roll

Actually just kidding....but I did want to share with you the quilt I hand delivered to my daughter today. I won this zen sphere material at the same time tammy decided to change the colors up in her living room. And yes, they just happen to be the same colours so why not make her a quilt, or should I say blanket, tammy? lOL


Not sure how many schnibbles I took part in but I sure did love taking part in it.... and of course going to the parade every month was the best....

Well here are mine and I can't, promise they are  in order. Lol
