The holidays are over now and things are gradually getting back to normal.  My sister came to visit us from the Chicago area and we had a great time together.  It snowed as we were getting home from picking her up from the airport and we had a few days of a winter wonderland!

We didn't do anything special, just talking, making puzzles, some shopping, playing games, etc.  The time went so fast, and now it's over already.  I did a little sewing while she was here, making cat blocks to turn into lap quilts.  These are such fun to make!  And I continued making them after she left.

In all, I have about 80 of them made, which is almost enough for 2 lap quilts.  

Next, I decided to put together some blocks that I have been working on for a while and I have a quilt top measuring 60" x 84".  I will add a 4" border as soon as I get some appropriate fabric.  I dug through my stash, but didn't have anything that would work.  This will be a donation quilt.  The blocks are scrappy and very easy to make.  These pictures are just sections of the quilt top.  I didn't have any place to hang it up right now.

A friend of mine made this and it looked really nice on her bed.  I hope this one will make someone happy.

And, yes, I have other ideas rolling around in my head that I want to make.  I was just looking over instructions (that I bought ages ago) for making a quilted jacket out of a sweat shirt.  I would really like to have that, but this pattern isn't exactly what I am wanting.

Then, there are some blocks that I got from 2 block exchanges and I need to make something with those.  I think I better make a list.  But at least I made a start in the new year!  

I will check to see if many of you have your lists all made by now.  Many of you are more organized than I am.  Good luck in the new year and I hope you will all have a happy and healthy 2022!
