Working up to the last minute!

Well here I am this morning trying to finish the quilting on Mom's quilt!!! I know I am cutting it very close. We exchange gifts on Christmas morning so I'm trying to get it done. I know there is no way that the binding will be even started so after I give her the quilt I will bring it back home and work on the binding within the next few days. The quilt measures 96x122! So that will take me a while to get the binding done on it. This is the largest quilt that I have ever had on my frame, so far it is working out great, no problems!

After I get this finished I need to quickly make the rice bags and finish some more of the hot pads!!!!!!!!!!

Last night I took a much needed break and we took Hunter to see the Christmas lights at the park. He loved it! It was cold and we decided to take our time and WALK around the park instead of driving around it. By the time we got finished my hip was killing me but it was worth it to see Hunter have so much fun. Lots of photos here, I tried to pick out some of our favorites!
They also had a section of the park that had large wooden cards setting up, this one measures somewhere around 6ft tall. It was by Marathon Oil, that is the company that my mom works for so I thought she might like to see it.

Also here in this area we have a lot of the quilt blocks on barns, Kentucky Quilt Trail, but here was one on a grade school right beside the park! I thought it was cute so I got a photo of it too!

Now I'm off and back to work before I settle down tonight and we watch THE NATIVITY STORY movie. We have watched it for the past several years on Christmas Eve. I hope everyone has a Blessed and Merry Christmas!!!
