I love my Christmas tree because I have collected loads of ornaments over the years and friends have given me my favorites. The one above was bought last year in Germany at a Christmas Market in Baden Baden. I think she is adorable.
This little ornament was made years ago at a decorating ornament party I had. Little Jesus has many French knots for hair and accents on His halo. It's old and I love it.
This year I took my two Grandchildren to buy the pajamas and then we drove to the Mission and dropped them off. I am hoping they learn the importance of giving. It makes the season brighter for all of us!
Thank you to those of you who prayed for me this year and helped me in so many ways. This was a tough year and I pray that next year will be a blessing to all of us.

I took a photo of her latest quilt. I love this Alexander Henry fabric stripe. Weird and wonderful colors! Mary has a great eye with color!
And below is the Anthropologue feathered tree.
Now it never freezes over and I think my Grandchildren are missing out on a lot of fun.
We did so many wholesome and good things back then and we shared what we had and we were kind and helpful to those who needed it.
These are the kinds of messages I try to get in my story quilts. Isn't there some nice memory you would like to share In a quilt? I am teaching story quilts in Tri Cuties Washington on March and also in late May I will be at John C Campbell teaching this for five days. Hope to see you!

I am at the end of an exciting trip to Chicago to visit. I started the week with Bernina Ambassador training. A nice group of us got to learn all of the fabulous things the new 880 sewing machine can do. It is simply so inspiring and exciting when you see what you can achieve. And my mind has been spinning with ideas for story quilts, projects to work on with my Grand children and how I can take embroidery and fill up some of my people and things I have painted on muslin.
Remember how I always say how WORDS are powerful? Well, you can print off anything anything you want to say using this machine. Wonderful and provides ways to follow through with what your mind invents!
Here are some of the Bernina teachers who taught us so many trucks. Some of you might know Jeanne Delpit who is the Grand Poobah of Bernina and helps them and all of us and always with a smile and great sincerity. She is the face of professionalism and is not only pretty but fun too.
If you need a machine do what I have done many times - but a Bernina!
Side note;- I burned the motor out of five (YES FIVE- honest) Singers. I kept paying a couple hundred dollars each. Finally I went for a Bernina thanks to my friend Julie and I have never looked back!
I will share more once I get home. It has been an inspiring and wonderful trip along with Mel McFarland . A great memory! #Bernina #Nancy Prince #quilt teachers #mary Lou Weidman

I love it
Very fun! I adore cherries.
Found this wonderful photo of my parents who were born the very same day. This will make a darling story quilt! Look at those styles!
