Since I haven't really been sewing much, I thought I would share some things that I have completed in the past.
I can't even remember how long ago I did this! It still hangs in our entry way. I love being home with those I love, especially during the holidays.
This is a gift that I gave Treasure a couple of years ago for Christmas. The picture reminds me of the sunsets out our living room window.
As we are nearer Christmas, I struggle, Mary or Martha? Should I rest in His arms or tackle the doo-doo list? I choose Christ.
If you need encouragement to dive into the quiet beauty of the season, visit here. I hope that you are all as blessed by the visit as I was!
I likely will not be posting anymore until after the Holidays.
Many Blessings and Merry Christmas!

These are the fabrics with enough left to make napkins. Good size scraps!!! (Yes, my vacuum can be seen, just the handle and switch. Surely I am not the only one that takes quilting breaks between rooms!!!)
These little beauties were supposed to go into the back of today's quilt. Alas, I made them too small, and didn't feel like remakes... Beyond the ironing board you can see the totes with our Christmas decorations. No tree up yet. Consider this a Moments picture!!!

What a hair brain I can be sometimes. I learned a lot doing this little quilt. Like they really mean it when they say not to use different bobbin thread color!! Lesson learned.
I got the Christmas Table Quilt 1 done too! Loving the Sherri Berry Holiday fabric. Christmas Quilt 2 will go on the buffet table in the background. I think the tables need something sparkly...
It reminds me of my childhood Christmases!

I have finished them too!
Plus, I used up some of my favorite civil war reproduction fabric. Some of these I kept for my own project, as well as the purple that The Quilt Shoppe owner cut for my own special Tango roll. (Thanks Dawn!!!) To make up for my selfishness, I shared some of my favorites with my Tango partners. So far my running total is 216 2-inch half square triangles!!! Wow, I didn't know that I had it in me!!
There is no fading, and she is in perfect condition! Tiny, tiny hand stitches cover her. She has no batting, like the other quilt. Her binding is that green, like the other quilt.
I fancy that a miracle has taken place. The stitch length both in the quilting and in the binding is so very similar. Could the same woman have made them?? We will never know. Neither quilt has a label. :-(
