It was supposed to be a Christmas present, but we just got it in the mail last week. Oops! My excuses are as follows:
1. I was still the gift processor for the Red Cross, a job I supposedly left almost a year ago. But as I am still on the payroll and the need remained, they would drive the gifts out to me in Boring so I could work from home with the baby. As you can imagine, the holidays and year-end are an incredibly busy giving season! I did train someone to take over in January, which has been a relief.
2. We were building that kitchen.
3. I really did sew other Christmas presents that arrived in a much more timely manner!
See! There's a purse, two skirts, a fabric-scrap book about colors, a homemade memory game, and a little crocheted hat for our nieces!
Enough with the excuses! Here is the quilt I made for Josh's mom:
She loves Taos, New Mexico, which was part of our summer trip with the baby. I was inspired by that to make a sampler of sorts. Each block design appears twice in varying colors. It was interesting how much that changed the look of some of them. Here are a couple of my favorite blocks:
And here is my cute little helper who was quite sure that we went out to the deck to pictures of him.
