Liquid Quilts

Things are settling down around here once again, to a dull roar! Christmas came and went, it was a magical time with the grandchildren this year, blessings abound. Here are our two families with their Chicken Soup quilts, a double dose! I won't subject you to any more Chicken Soup quilts for a while... that is, until I resurrect my own unfinished one with sixty degree diamonds! We gathered together as a family again yesterday to celebrate Mr. Goodneedle's birthday with a celebratory luncheon here; we were fortunate to have his sister and brother-in-law visiting this year, along with our children, their children and his mother we were four generations singing "Happy Birthday" over his cake, what a happy day it was! Just when you think I'm through for a while stitching liquid (Chicken Soup) quilts, look what's hopped up onto my frame!
"Strawberry Lemonade"!

A certain little girl will be one year old in a few weeks;
she needs a birthday quilt... doesn't this one look like a party?
Life is Good!

I love the photo of your family with their liquid quilts. : )
How wonderful to have so much family together to celebrate Mr. G.'s birthday. Makes it pretty special.
Strawberry lemonade will surely brighten a one-year birthday celebration for that cute little gal!

Happy times--I see a lot of smiles in that photo. Strawberry Lemonade, what a fitting name for such a happy quilt. 1 year already, doesn't seem possible. Sounds like Mr. G. certainly celebrated in style, what fun.
