Alive and Still Stitching

I will have some finishes to share soon. Treasure needs to go back to work for one of them to be photographed. ;0)

Speaking of which, my camera is suffering from "zoom error". I thought I would be able to spare you the terrible iPod pictures, but alas, we will suffer together.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am having a too-much-fun rebound cold! One more excuse to sit on the recliner and bind this quilt.

Christmas shopping almost done. Mother-in-love's Christmas quilt...not so much.

Works in Progress

Got my computer back last night, so I polished off the real camera and grabbed some pictures of Treasure's quilt.  I used my walking foot to go around the corner squares.  Now I am on to the loopy FMQ.  I really goes so much faster than trying to turn all those corners!

(Gratuitous under the sewing machine shot)
I am abandoning my selfish WIP list for the time being.  I need to get much done for Christmas.  Hopefully I can get Treasure's Quilt finished by this weekend.

Then I will have to get back to this simple quilt for my Mother-in-Love for Christmas.  She doesn't use a computer EVER so I finally have a Christmas present that I can share!  I have flannel for the back, and the wool batting is on the way.  Hope it will keep her cozy.

Just finished basting Treasure's quilt. Hoping to start the "freeing" process. Is it weird that I feel like I am unchaining the quilt as I can take out the pins?

Hopefully I will get my computer back soon. Then I can quit torturing you with horrible iPod pictures!!!
