Friday Finish, Janurary Finish's

Hi friends!
Finally a finish!
Now as soon as it gets cold again this will go on our bed, Tommy's Deer Quilt.
That ring of wrench blocks saves this quilt from being to dark. He loves it that's all that matters.
Thank you so much Julie Rose HERE     She blogs at julierosequilts She is a sweetie, just  what i needed to get me over the slump after Christmas. I had made him a small quilt for the living room before but made it out of some beautiful fabric , of course he wasn't impressed, it resides on the foot of out bed as a foot warmer. It wasn't a manly quilt but i had ordered some "Honey" when it came out and i loved it !
He should has appreciated me using fabric that was expensive and beautiful on him but some how he was luke-warm about it , wonder why?
Men just doesn't fall in love with fabric like we do i guess!
This was the sum total of what i had finished this month until i finished his quilt.
Two wreaths and a burp cloth. by the way i am still waiting to find out what  what the baby will be.
As some of you know i have been fighting with my Aunt Pauline's quilt for a while on my other blog HERE
So that has taken up a lot of my time.
This came in the mail this morning from Claire    HERE  csppoonquilt.blogspot
She had a giveaway  that i won and she  sent me lots of pink , Thank you so much Claire , i love it! she must have known i have lots of g-g girls. I can just see some of this made up into bibs and burp cloths already for the next g-g.  With 23 grands and only 9 having babies well really 8 because Jessica is married but hasn't started down that road, She has to finish school first. you know i will have lots to make for in years to come.
Our youngest is just 13 and we have lots that are still in school.  4 in college! Two graduates this year  from high school , Jarrod and Allison and two more next year , Tatum and Mark, they are growing up fast.
Have a great weekend 
Quilt Happy

A real manly quilt. I understand that men like manly, my husband likes manly too.
I would show him this but he would like one just like it and it is way above my capabilities. Great work!
