Not our typical Christmas

Well Hello Friends from Sunny Florida! Well kind of overcast this morning, but NOT snowy so I will take it!
It is hard to believe that our two weeks is almost up! We have had such a great time! Uncle Timmy has been such a great host and so wonderful to take the four of us in! We have packed a LOT into this time down here!

I finished up a quilt and gave it to my Niece Natalie for Christmas! I worked on the binding on the flight here and on the drive down to Key West!

My Fam!
We Drove down to Key west for the weekend! Drove over the Seven Mile Bridge! And visited the Southern most point of our United States!
We rode on a hover thingy I the Everglades and drove down Alligator Alley and saw a BAJILLION alligators!!!

Uncle Timmy and Lil
Darien and Natalie
Uncle Timmy and the kids made gingerbread houses!

We celebrated Christmas in true Timmy fashion! We watched the Family Guy Star Wars trilogy, Darien, Timmy, and Honeyman played a Star Wars fantasy something or another game, then we watched Star Wars I, II, & III! Yes we are in that kind of home! LOL
We also went to Bush gardens and rode coasters and Lil had the high light of her vacation when she got to meet this guy...
Just look at the sheer joy!
Oh he knew he was making this kids day, too! He was playing it up! It did my heart good!
We also visited MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) And are planning Lego Land for today!
WOW that is a LOT! I'm glad when we get back I have a few days to recover from this vacation! But really, it has been such a wonderful trip! We did not exchange gifts, the time together WAS our gift! I just hope our children see it as such!
We fly out on Monday! I do so hope Allegiant does not mess up our return flight... Oh, I forgot to mention our flight here was SUPPOSED to be at 4:00! It got moved back to 5:15... and then to 8:30!!! That is a late flight and they had no other options! Since booking we have heard from several friends who have also had HORRIBLE experiences with them! I will not fly with them again!!
Sorry, done with rant! LOL
I'm off to start my day!
 Have a great one friends!

Celtic Solstice Part 1

Oh, I did it! I started! Normally I like to wait till the end of a QAL to start. I like to change up the colours, I like to make it my own and sometimes I like to do mulitiple steps at once! Especially when I'm working on. One that is as labor intensive as a Bonnie Hunter QAL! But thins time...
Well I have step one finished all but triming up the last dozen or so. I know, week 2 has already been posted, but I went and wrecked up my back and spent all day Sunday druged up and lying on a heating pad! So I am trying to take it slow and let it heal up.
One more week and we will be out of here for 2 weeks! Let's cross our fingers for good flying weather!
Have a great day friends
See you soon
Till then, quilt on!

November wrap up

Sheesh! I feel like I'm so far behind! But what else is new! LOL
OK SO I was last working on my Rainbow round! I only had the binding to go!! And my FAVORITE is a good striped bias binding! So I went with Purple!! SQUEAL! This quilt SCREAMS me! It is bright and has lots of red and purple! I am psyched I can put it on the DONE list!

Also on the done list are Sunshine's Quillow AND Terra's Quillow!
I do feel bad because I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to get the other 2 done before we leave for vacation! OOPS! But Sean loves me! He will forgive!
Close up of quilting!
Terra's front
I took pictures at night and had a difficult time getting a good one. The top is the best representation of colour. I do love this one and hope Terra does as well!

Sunshine's DONE!
I also finished Sunshine's, but had to go with the flow! I didn'[t buy enough white (and it is a white on white) and when I went back to the store they didn't have any more! SO I decided to make the center bottom black! I think it works! And like me it is something UNEXPECTED!! LOL
Those are the only updates to my WIP list! I don't think 2 started and finished in one month is bad! LOL I'm pretty sure because we will be gone for almost 2 weeks in December that I probably will NOT have such a productive month! But one NEVER knows!!

Have a great day!
See you soon!
Till then...
Quilt on friends!!
