Merry Christmas Everyone

I awoke this morning feeling very blessed by God.  I have so many things to be thankful for.  I have wonderful friends, I have family I love and I kicked breast cancer to the curb.  But most of all I am thankful for the gift God gave me of being able to quilt.  That is my true passion.  I am so at home in my sewing room.  Sometimes I have to force myself to get up and move around, go outside soak in sunshine.  It’s just difficult to pull myself away from a project once I become engrossed in it.  I have been able to complete many quilt tops this year.  They will be my legacy for my nieces and nephews.   Heads up nieces and nephews be nice to your Aunt Sissy!

I made up a December Project To Do List, yes I have ocd and I love my lists.  They keep me on track.   Today I finished all items on my list.  And yes, I have a list already made up for January 2016.  🙂  Feeling pretty smug!

Today was absolutely gorgeous.  Not quite sure where we topped out but probably close to 70 degrees F.   I sat outside for awhile in my rocking chair on the porch soaking in the sunshine.  Christmas day and I’m wearing a t-shirt.  Wow.

I have two whole days to devote to my January 2016 list!. Pretty excited about that.  I  am hoping to complete at least 12 quilts this year.  Some new and some UFO’s.  Some for me some to be surprises for my friends.

Merry Christmas everyone and wishing you a blessed 2016!

About Sissy Malone

I've been actively sewing since Jr. High School. But specifically drawn to quilting since I was 17/18 years old. My grandmother was a quilter and I became fascinated with the process. I fell in love (awestruck) is a better word viewing applique quilts by Gladys Rashka at the Minnesota State Fair in the 70's. A love affair was born of applique quilts. I still machine piece, but am always drawn to applique. I took classes learning different techniques and also traveled to California and studied a whole week at Asilomar with Elly Sienkiewicz. Quilting is my passion. I am always open to learning a new technique but still rely on handwork. View all posts by Sissy Malone
