2013 Wrap Up of Quilts

Here are the quilts I made in 2013 that had their pictures taken. I know there are more, but I made them for gifts and sent them off without taking a photo :o(. Oh well, the recipients know I made them! Now, on to 2014!

Christmas decorating and quilting deadlines

We here at Wazoo are working like frantic elves to get our shopping, mailing and home decorating done before Santa revs up the sleigh. The tree is up, exterior illuminations twinkling, and the mice are busy in their little village. Now, I wish I had the time to get the shopping done and the packages sent. Oh dear! I am so behind schedule this year!!
Mr Wazoo has been quilting like a crazy man to get the Christmas orders finished. On the other hand, I have been painfully slow (emphasis on pain) with my orders because of my knee and a nasty cold. I did finish a beautiful Piece o'Cake quilt for a customer, who seemed very happy with the results. Show season is almost here, so I had better speed it up!
Enjoy some mixed quilt and Christmas time pictures until we meet again.
