Hi folks...been a good week here, getting out walking some...exercising that foot that was broken.
Getting lots of quilts caught up too..things coming together.
I finished quilting two quilts today...ready for bindings.
This is Dandy Stars by Missouri Star Co., pieced by Merril, my husband and I machine quilted it on Lily with an all over floral pattern...freehand.
This one is Homeward Bound, designed by Merrill, pieced by Merrill and I hand quilted it. I really enjoyed our Christmas time, but am very content to be back at this. This past Monday we had our sewing get together with friends...had a fantastic day!
Next I will hand quilt a customer quilt and machine quilt a customer t shirt quilt.

Finishes this week

Good morning is a chilly week here.  Well, along with decorating for Christmas and wrapping gifts, I finished hand quilting this one for a friend.
You wouldn't think blue sashing would work here...but it brings things to life.
And, I finished quilting this next one on Lily yesterday morning, and bound it last night.  It kept we awake so I could watch Vikings!
Now, today, I hope to finish wrapping gifts...then next week do a little baking, which I don't do a lot of anymore. I find no one wants to eat when, I eat it!
Have a wonderful rest of your week folks.  And Merry Christmas in case I'm not back before then.

Good morning is a dull one here, while we await more snow. Well, I am still wearing the foot cast for awhile yet...not healing well, but we will get there.  Meanwhile, I am getting lots of quilting done!
I told you I had started this quilt a couple of weeks is ready to go now. Lots of little appliqu├ęd bits.
They are hoping to get here today before the snow.  And I am making two throw size quilts for a lady from clothing...a memory quilt. Here is one finished...the other is on Lily.
They are pretty much the same.  I now have this one in being hand quilted for a friend.
This is probably the last one to be hand quilted until after New
I have a few t shirt quilts to get started, and three or four more large quilts to hand quilted.  Plus, I have six or eight of my own to quilt.  I am piecing my 100 Club quilt...I do this every year with our fabric shop in the area. 
Well, I think  that's about it for today folks...enjoy your week.

Good morning is a chilly one here this morning.  Well, I have Bella all hand quilted and bound...ready to ship.  This quilt is an order along with the Giant Dahlia I showed earlier.  Will have to see how our mail strike goes before mailing though..they are talking!  Lol

Here is Giant Dahlia again 
And, Bella...
Now, I have another one in the hand quilting frames, and will start piecing a cat throw for Lily(Coronet).
I am now putting my full weight on my broken foot with aircast on, which helps so much.
It's amazing, the things we take for granted, til they are gone.  But, on the mend! Have a great weekend...coming right up.
