COPPIN FAMILY NEWSLETTER

Merry Christmas to all our friends and family!

 

What a busy and full year this has been for all of us!  Doug and I celebrated 30 years of marriage in March by going to San Francisco for the weekend!  We had so much fun, just the 2 of us wandering around and staying in the Palace Hotel!  Doug is edging even closer to retiring from the VA, and I’m not sure I’m ready for him to be home all day long!  Next year will be 30 years there with the VA in the warehouse.   

I’m still working for Breitner as an editor/transcriptionist from home and love it, and plan to be there for a while.  I am still quilting from home and love it!  Most of my quilts go to Children’s Hospital or Marjoree Mason Center for the little ones.  My list of “Wanna Do” quilt projects keeps growing, wonder if I will live long enough to finish them!  Our five kitties love to supervise by lying on top of fabric, playing with blocks, and chasing each other around the house. 

My favorite projects are still my family and spoiling our grandchildren and it looks like we will be adding a couple of branches to our family tree.   Kathy and Jenny are both expecting!  Kathy is due end of April—mid May, and Jenny is due in July or August.  Not sure when yet.  Doug and I are both excited to be grandma and grandpa again!  This is a big surprise for Jenny as she thought she was finished with having children.  Matt will be 9 in December and is hoping for a little sister.  Ariel and Jenny are both working and planning to move back from Michigan soon.  I hope so, as it has been way too long since we have seen them! 

Kathy, An, and Sam are doing well.  Sam will be 4 in January and hopes to start preschool in the fall.  An is with GameStop and Kathy is a stay at home mom!  On a sad note, Kayla, their black lab, had to be put down as she had cancer; she was only 9 years old.

Please feel free to peruse my blog for pictures and stories from 2011.

Hugs to all!

 

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
