The Dizzy Daisy, Free Motion QuiltingHappy New Year, Quilters!

I hope 2016 is off to a good start for all of YOU, dear friends!

The holidays were very busy at The Kennedy Family Residence.  Whenever my six children get together it is always a bit chaotic—add a  grand baby-Henry,  two husbands, a few boyfriends, two dogs, extended family and you have…

Well, lets just say there was little down time…(though I did sneak away to stitch a few times!)

Quality family time=PRICELESS


I am back to my introverted January routine:  quilting, photography, writing and blogging…plus a few New Year Resolutions.
