Woohoo!!! We are getting close to the big day.....lol. I finished wrapping gifts today, a very nice feeling and the tree is decorated!!
This week, I have this finished quilt to share with you...
All hand quilted and bound. I spent the past few days piecing this one.
Sorry, you can't see the last row there...shadows. This is just a small quilt kit from Connecting
Threads. It was really neat to work on too.
Yesterday I met with the sewing girls for our Christmas gift exchange and a little sewing. We always have a good time sharing and helping each other with projects. Hoping you all have a productive week.

NThe weeks are rolling by too quickly. I completely finished my huge project on Tiara, and will show you as soon as I can. I am so very anxious!!!!!
Today I did finish my new tree skirt...I have an older one in traditional colors of red and green to go with my older decorations. This one will go with my newer ornaments which I usually switch out every couple of years.
It doesn't look anywhere near as nice here as it really does...It is so sparkley with this metalic fabric.

Not too long ago, I had a fellow blogger ask if I had a blog post about how I go about my hand quilting process. It took me by surprise because I had never thought about it...it is something I guess, that I take for granted.
It was Stacey who asked me about it, and I agreed to do just that, one of these days. So, I thought...why not now during Blogathon Canada????
This afternoon I decided to put one of my own quilts in to hand quilt so....here is my process.
In this first pic I am showing you a homemade version of quilting frames.
Next step is to pin baste the quilt top to the other 2 layers.
Now...this is the pattern that I am quilting on this quilt...

Hey folks! Today was a good day here...Remembrance service this morning was great, and the weather was good. It was nice to get outside in a t shirt...washed the car.
Now for WIPs....I've been sewing steady, but for Christmas and can't show you yet. I will be glad when I can get back to normal projects here!!! Lol
I did finish the three casserole carriers that I had an order for....no laughing now, I forgot to take pictures before shipping them out yesterday!!!!!!! So, I have one picture....gosh!!!!
The other 2 were shades of brown and shades of rust...actually quite nice colors. This is not something I expected to get an order for, but not boring to make either...lol.
I did machine quilt a wall hanging for one of my daughter in laws yesterday to give to her little niece.
Hoping to teach her how to bind it...lol.
I have a large quilt ready to pin baste for the Tiara...largest one yet.We've missed our sewing get together so for the past 2 weeks....everyone is just busy.
