Back To Normal

In Life, Quilting by Lisa Burnett

At long last, I think we are officially back to work.  We had a great Christmas and we hope everyone's holiday was as much fun as ours.  First, a few things about Christmas.  As far as presents go, the theme was definitely "1001 ways to get on the internet".  Or I could name it "1001 ways for 3 kids and 6 adults to find a way to play Angry Birds".   From the iphone, to the ipod touch, to the Kindle Fire to a Droid phone to…etc, etc, etc.  I think we are teched (I know that is definitely not a word) out.  Which brings me to my treasure that my mom gave me.  Nothing technical at all.  She bought an old, beat-up rocking chair at some type of flea market and turned it into this:


I wish I had a "before" picture to show you the transformation.  A few months ago, I stashed away some of our Hometown grey dot canvas for myself.  I didn't know what I wanted to do with it, but this definitely works.  And I love the pillows- especially the circle one!


The kids also received some non-electronic items.  I pulled them away from their various devices today just long enough to start decorating a cardboard playhouse that Santa brought Cash:





I think they actually had more fun coloring and creating than they did playing a video game- just don't tell them that!

So back to the work stuff.  Before Christmas, we made our club project for January, but are just getting around to blogging about it.  I know what you are thinking.  Valentines Day.  Christmas was only 2 days ago.  But if we sent you this in February, you wouldn't have time to get it done.  So Valentine's Day is the theme for the January Label Crew!


Also, for all of you asking about our new Reunion patterns, we will have them on our Etsy site next week.

Have a great day!
