For Mrs. Claus ...

Here's a little doll quilt I made from leftover pieces from a guild block swap top.  I can't show that top yet, but the doll quilt is on its way to Mrs. Claus and I can share it.

The doll quilts will be paired with a handmade cradle and given to children during the holidays.  What a fun project!

I was almost finished binding my Quilts of Valor quilt when my dad called to tell us that our Christmas visit was just too far away.  He and his wife popped in that weekend and I was thrilled to present his quilt to him earlier than planned.  Dad served as an aggressor pilot in the Air Force for 20 years.  I'm very proud of his service and his knack for excelling in whatever he decides to pursue.  His passion and drive lead him to give his all for as long as it takes.

Today is our 19th wedding anniversary.  Since Mr. SeeingStars is on work travel, we had to send text messages wishing each other a happy day.  But he'll be back soon and we'll have a belated celebration.  Our teens are going on a physics field trip this Saturday, so we'll even have a little time for just us. The weather forecast predicts a nice day for a hike.

Enjoy your day!

  1. How nice that your Dad stopped in for an early visit. Your quilt was gorgeous, especially those eagles, and I'm sure it was very appreciated. Happy anniversary to the both of you! Have a fantastic time celebrating (whenever that might be)!
