Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas to everyone in blogland.

This is the table runner that I made Liz in Scotland. I can show it now that she has received it. Pretty with a pointsetta on it.



Here is our small Christmas display at home. A simple little tree on a santa table runner.

All the kids/grand kids gifts underneath the table. My oldest son and family will be here shortly. We are going to have a good time.


Isn't this Santa display cute?

Liz's Table Runner


Now that Liz (in Scotland) has her Christmas box and seen the table runner I made for her I can show it... While visiting here in October I had her select a Christmas fabric. She picked the light colored one. Great choice. I took it from there. Measures 25 X 64 or there abouts.


Now she is wondering what is in the wrapped presents ... :-)


I stitched labels on quilts today, washed them. Wrapped presents and began decorating for Christmas. Hopefully tomorrow I can spend sometime in my sewing room. Maybe I will have something to show...

Princess Quilt, Special Secret Sister

Some of my finishes this weekend: A princess quilt from panels for my grand daughter. It's twin size. Quilted with free form feathers.




I have gotten to the point where I see beauty in my quilting. Instead of looking at parts of it, I look at the overall picture.

Next up is my secret sister gift I made. It was one of Mary's December gifts along with a crystal wine glass (her second glass) and a bottle of wine. She is in charge of Love Quilts and named herself "The Love Goddess". Appropriate and now she has a momento!


I have other finishes I can't show.... No peeking Liz (in Scotland). I guarantee it's pretty and festive.

I have started a Sylvia's Bridal Quilt and have about 10 blocks completed. Am enjoying the process.

Well I'm off to get some more sewing done, Christmas is coming "real soon".

Blocks, nickels and Blackie

I quilted this top today using freehand feathers. It's made up of all orphan blocks and will be going to a special little girl who wants a "big girl" quilt.

Last year our guild had an exchange of fabric squares (nickels - 5 inch). I went thru them and pulled all the patriotic ones. I am unsure of the outer border. Seems too large.. What do you think?

And finally a picture of Blackie with his coat looking real good. He's such a sweetie.
