I finished both of the Quilts For Kids quilts today that Nancy and I made Thanksgiving day.

(Borders are different on both quilts, otherwise, they are pretty much the same.)

QFK 017

I watched The Lake House while I was sewing on the binding and washing the quilts. I watched The Lake House TWICE! The first time, I kept turning it up, and I had to watch what I was doing while sewing down the binding, so when it was over, I started it over again, and watched it again. I got to watch the last half the second time without the sewing going on. I think Louie needs to see this movie. I know he will love it. I DID! (Another Goodwill movie). Again, I am about 4-5 years behind the movie release date, but that’s ok. I’m sure I enjoyed it as much today, as I would have 4 years ago.


One more finished quilt was delivered to me today, so now I have in my possession, seven quilts. Renea has two or three she is bringing over in the morning, and there are two still out there. I’m going to mail what we have on Monday so these quilts can be distributed, since they are all pretty much Christmas themed. What a nice stack of soft, comfy quilts!

Hope your day was happy and you stayed warm!

Be blessed!

I'm glad you got 2 more quilts done!

I LOVE Lake House! I've watched it several times and some w/ Miss K since it is in the city. I don't love many movies but that is one I would rattle off if anyone asks. :)

I can't remember if I saw Lake House or not - my junk shops never seem to have movies or maybe I just get there too late! I've got a longing for Christmas quilts this year for some reason and am working on two - and bought a kit for another one Saturday! blessings, marlene

Great looking quilts and for such a good cause. I watched the video and plan to do some when I get caught up. I asked my daughter if she'd like to do one too and she said maybe. That would be enjoyable.
